An Open Layout for a Relaxing Tropical Home in Quezon City
Generous windows, elevated flooring, and an open design make this home a sanctuary amidst the hustle and bustle of the city
“Very simple, airy, with natural light,” – this is how the owner described his vision for his family home. With the help of Architect Peter Buendia, this dream was turned into reality.

The living, dining, and kitchen areas all share a singular open space. Because of the open plan, the area is bathed in natural light. The calming sound of water from a small pond by the dining area creates a more relaxing atmosphere.
