If you asked Bryant Cuison six years ago what his 28sqm condo unit's theme or design was, he wouldn't be able to come up with anything other than “generic” or “typical.” It's because his space then was exactly like it: white walls and ceiling, small cabinets—pretty much like every studio-type condo unit available in the market. Aside from his bed that was strategically placed near the door so he can easily flop on it after a hard day's work, his space was rather empty.

Eventually, Bryant grew tired of his unit's aesthetic during his fifth year, so he decided to renovate it. His project timeline? Thirty days. It might come off as unattainable for some, but since Bryant knows the ins and outs of the construction industry—he runs William Brothers, Inc. with his brother—it wasn't hard for him to pull off. Good thing his friends and some of his best workers were on-board with the project. Interior designer Rod Lascano was in charge of the electrical and overall layout, while architect Mary Bocalid took care of the interior design.

The result was hard to ignore. Most of the white walls were replaced with shades of gray and black, and in place of his bed, a proper living area with an L-shaped custom-made gray couch now welcomes his guests. Across it is his home office, done in a combination of custom-made black cabinets and cement walls. The space extends to the dining area, where the clever use of space is most evident. Further down the unit is the bathroom—simple but on-theme, nonetheless. His sleeping quarters, though, is another story. It has a wall-to-wall window, a custom-made bed, and fitted cove lights, perfect for a relaxing slumber after a long day.
