Have you ever stepped into a space and immediately felt at ease? It’s safe to say that this sprawling house in Cavite has a similar magic. With five bedrooms, powder rooms, an inviting family area, and upper and lower decks to boot—it’s a dream home anyone would love to call his own. Considered as a happy project by real estate developer Irene Enriquez, the house highlights influences and elements she learned from Japanese and Italian designs.

Irene took into consideration Japan’s disciplined culture as reflected in architecture. “[The] shapes are very clean and geometric. Each line is calculated and deliberate. The architectural details of this house were carefully planned and executed,” shares Irene. While both Japanese and Italian styles showcase the use of natural materials and neutrals, Italian design takes it further by mixing it with modern elements like glass and metal. To reflect this in her project, Irene brought in elegant furnishings, wooden touches, and modern accessories that double as accent pieces.

Meanwhile, the addition of travel mementos used as décor helped personalize the home and give it character. “The house symbolizes both a stroll down memory lane from previous travels and an anticipation for future travels to new places,” says Irene. While it’s hard to pick just one favorite spot in the home—the upper deck definitely steals the show. It’s not only the best spot for meditation, it also gives a breathtaking view of the lush surroundings and the twinkling stars at night. More than just a happy place, the house is definitely the best place to unwind, entertain friends, and get closer to nature.
