When homeowners Jaime and Dr. Susan De Guzman Florentino purchased their three-storey townhouse, they immediately noticed that the home was too small, the staircase was in front of the front door, and the bathroom door faced the living area.

In order to address these issues, the couple decided to take on an extensive home renovation project. They worked closely with contractor Engineer Felix Miranda (mobile 0927 428 0668) to create a bigger home, move the staircase, change the bathroom layout, and implement other important changes. 

Jaime explains that Dr. Susan chose the black-and-white color palette, finishing materials, furniture pieces, and home decor for the space. While Dr. Susan was responsible for the style and function, Jaime was the one who visited the construction site everyday for 10 months. Their unique hands-on approach has resulted in a completely transformed sanctuary perfect for their lifestyle, tastes, and personalities.
