The Narciso family wanted a dream home where they can showcase their prized art collection without the cold, sterile vibe of a museum. With the help of architect Ramon Antonio, the homeowners came up with a design inspired by Asian-tropical homes that had an open layout, sliding doors, and lots of natural light.

Before embarking on the building process, Antonio asked the Narciso couple for their wish list of everything they wanted in their dream house. The husband and wife team came up with these requirements: plenty of open space for the kids to move around in, a kitchen and dining area to enjoy long and lazy Sunday brunches, areas to display their art collection, and a lovely garden that can be seen from every room in the house.

Antonio’s design aesthetic focused on modern functionalism interspersed with Asian-tropical touches – the perfect canvas to complement the Narcisos’ wish list. Antonio was very much inspired by the project that he even did interior designing, garden landscaping, and even feng shui for the Narciso home. The result is a timeless home that is cozy, warm, and inviting, yet visually interesting at every turn.
