A Luxurious yet Relaxing Feel for a 45sqm Unit in Pasay
In this special feature—the 7th Real Home for RL’s September issue—Grupo Santamaria transforms a stark condo unit into a comfy haven
Grupo Santamaria, led by principal interior designer Nina Santamaria, had quite the job order: to transform a stark 45sqm, one-bedroom condo unit into a cozy haven. But that wasn’t all. Their client had some non-negotiable features she wanted to see in her unit—a walk-in closet, lots of storage for her collection of bags and shoes, no bright colors, and no bright lights.
“It was challenging at first,” says Nina, recalling that since their client worked at night, she was usually asleep in the mornings, when the team was ready to begin their workday. “We needed to put sleep and rest as the foremost uses of her condo, and yet the building is in the middle of a busy district.”
Six months after they started, Grupo Santamaria was able to turn over a unit that is cozy and filled with “softly upholstered furniture, low-maintenance materials, and a warm, soothing color palette that give off a relaxing feel,” says Nina. In other words, they turned a plain box of a unit into a warm, snug home.
