Leaving his spacious residence in Alabang behind, a widower in his 60s gets a second wind on life by moving into a smaller space in the heart of the city. With breathtaking views of the bustling streets of Makati and the distant mountains of Antipolo, the 135sqm space has proved to be quite a sanctuary for the businessman.

The interior designer, Lisa Salvador of Studio 10.48, wanted to give her client a classic but masculine space befitting of his stature. Though the condominium unit is very much like a bachelor's pad, its aesthetics is conservative and tasteful. Making full use of the unit’s high ceiling, Salvador anchored the design on a linear theme. Earth-toned mosaics were vertically embedded along the living area's tanguile wood panels. Huge glass windows make the space even more spacious with functional furniture, tastefully designed, completing the look.
