Homeowners Jake and Jenny collaborated once again with architect Joel Muñoz to create a stunning tropical home in South Admiral Village, Parañaque. Their current abode is a simple structured yet elegant home, in basic earth tones accented here and there with red and green. At 175sqm, the home is light and open – aided by high ceilings, plenty of windows to let the sunshine in, and a green garden.

To bring openness and light in their two-storey home, the living area and foyer were designed with a vertical double-height structure, where the ground floor flows freely to the second. This allows the place to naturally cool, as warm air rises to the ceiling. The double-height structure also gives the house a light feeling, shying away from a tight and cluttered space. Outside, a blooming a garden grows, giving more light and life to the place.
