Ryan Madamba likes meaning in his life. He is a no-nonsense businessman, fashion designer, and chef who knows what he wants and it shows in his home. His 130sqm condo unit in Ortigas reflects not only his design sensibilities but also his philosophy in life.

His condo is a multipurpose space where he can be himself and allows him to fully embrace his creativity. He painted his space in white – the best palette for artists, it’s been said – and yet stays true to himself by adding in touches of gray, his favorite color. The palette of white and grays makes his condo the perfect exhibition space for his creations as well as his knight collection.

He carefully curates his space by including décor and accent pieces that have meaning in his life, complemented by functional pieces that save space while adding visual interest. The result is an elegant home-office that is cozy despite its sleekness with details that make a statement – a highly functional space that reveals the homeowner’s personality, taste, and style.
