If you have a nice, warm spot to gather friends and family in, what else do you really need? This 80sqm pad in Taguig City has just a few pieces of furniture, which all make for genial conversation, nice meals, and some quiet me-time. 

The couple acquired one two-bedroom unit and one studio in this development, and had the units combined. “We were able to tell the builders, in writing, before the turnover, not to put anything in place—walls, toilets, tiles, nothing. It looked like a warzone,” recalls the lady of the house.

They reconfigured the unit to have one bedroom with an adjoining bathroom and a walk-in closet, one powder room, and a maid’s room with a toilet and bath. They enlisted the help of a school chum, interior designer Garnet David, who helped maximize the space.

The lady of the house likes to change the layout of her space now and then, and the limited floor area doesn’t seem to be a hindrance. All this movement keeps the energy in the room circulating happily, even as it keeps the homeowner feeling, well, happy!
