Who doesn’t enjoy quick trips to Tagaytay? Whether you’re longing for the cool breeze, some familiar sights, and new things to enjoy—this famous spot never fails to surprise its visitors. If you’ve been thinking about getting a place in this cool city, this 30sqm unit may just be the inspiration you’ve been waiting for. Designed by architect Ivy Tablante-Darilag of Structura Architects, the unit will surely take the Tagaytay experience a notch higher. “The unit was designed as a second home, which the owner intends to rent out. We wanted to achieve a clean look with an inviting ambiance, with loft as design theme. The intent was to create an ambiance that mimics the feeling of being in an elevated space. [It needs to be] airy, light, and breezy,” says Ivy.

Completing the homey aesthetic are wooden touches and neutral colors with pops of green and blue. Since some vacations are meant to be enjoyed with family and friends, it’s quite a challenge to make sure that the studio unit can accommodate around eight to 10 people. “The biggest challenge was having to design a limited space for 8 to 10 users. Our team had to be creative in thinking of ways to maximize the space, like designing a custom foldaway bed,” shares the architect.
