A dilapidated two-storey 1960s house in Malabon is given new life and turned into the Cayco family home with the help of interior designer Nina Santamaria. When couple Edison and Mau Cayco bought the house, the foundations of the house was still sturdy, but there were already termite infestation and other problems.

With all the problems fixed in the renovation, the house now boasts of a contemporary interior design style filled with designer furniture by the likes of Kenneth Cobonpue, Vito Selma and Ito Kish. The Caycos have also begun collecting local artworks that add a sense of culture to the space.
