The Fernando family lives in a compound enclave that includes a family of artists, writers, and cultural enthusiasts. Although it’s located in the heart of the city, the inside of the compound feels like a quiet retreat into solace, art, and culture.

A modern take on the traditional bahay kubo, the couple’s two-storey home is elevated a few steps from the ground. Designed with the help of architect Wendy Regalado, the house highlights generous windows that let natural light stream in, as well as allow cool air to flow through. Lush gardens surround the house. The home is intricately Filipino in design from the wooden slat flooring, neatly carved callados, down to the eclectic mix of antique furniture and Filipino artwork.
