“It’s really true what they say that the finishing is the most difficult part because you realize things that you did not see or anticipate,” according to the homeowners. But although it came to the point where they found themselves swapping the master bedroom and their daughter’s bedroom at the last minute because of unforeseen issues, the couple chose to make themselves “very much involved” in bringing to life the home of their dreams.

Fortunately, the couple has the same taste, which they say might have something to do with the fact that they both work in the human resources field. The modern minimalist style has always appealed to them, and the interplay of concrete, glass and wood is what they saw fit for the home that they want. “[We wanted] all areas to be spacious—with a high ceiling, and with enough room to showcase our growing number of art pieces,” the homeowners relate.

They didn’t have to look very far to find the team who could execute their ideas: A family member runs Western Engineering and Industrial Supply, which they hired as contractor. The contractor was doing a similar project with architect Agatha Rodis, so the homeowners chose to work with her as well. Meanwhile, an ex-officemate led them to meet architects Justin Espejo and Paolo Balatbat of Minimalist Manila, who did the interiors for this home.
