Minimalist Rest House Style in an 84sqm Condo
Mid-Century Modern and Industrial elements transform a Taguig home
Mid-century Modern design is a style from the 1940s to the 1960s defined by its clean and simple look. In this 84sqm condo, these retro elements create a calm, relaxed vibe perfect for any modern home.
Interior designer Wilmer Lopez of WLopez Designs filled the rooms with bare concrete, bleached wood and vintage furniture. The two-bedroom unit also has an open ceiling with exposed wires and plumbing to make the area look spacious. An open layout with almost no walls makes the home even more bright and airy.
