As the city becomes more and more congested, the best decision is to move to the suburbs where space and fresh air are abundant. Vic and Maricel knew they made the right decision to move from Makati to Laguna when they finally completed their dream home.

The couple, along with their kids, were once city-dwellers who thrived on the hustle and bustle of the urban jungle. But the daily traffic jams, pollution and noise prompted them to move to Laguna where lush greenery, views of Mt. Makiling, and a golf course and clubhouse beckoned the family. Not long after, “The Nest,” as Maricel fondly calls their home, was created and the family lifestyle changed. Nowadays, the family spends their weekends at home entertaining guests, becoming healthier and more family-centered.

Their dream home was inspired by Maricel’s desire to have “light, air, and space,” and so with the help of her brother, architect John Pangilinan and his wife Vicki Aldeguer-Pangilinan, an interior designer, the family built a home that maximized the surroundings – its ample space, the stunning views, and lush foliage. The result is an airy, white house with simple lines, high ceilings, and picture windows that allow an abundance of natural light to stream in. The home is definitely a relaxing environment that is ideal for nurturing a growing family.
