Nature Takes Center Stage in this Antipolo House

Incorporating the lush surroundings into their home came naturally for this environmentalist family

With a landscape filled with beautiful greenery and a stroke of wilderness, it was only obvious for homeowners Emma and Cesar to design a house that embraced its surroundings rather than diminish it. After commissioning Bruno Design’s Divina Mallari and her team, they knew that a natural-looking and eco-friendly place was their top priority.

Once inside the stunning Antipolo home, it’s not hard to see why. Pristine views of lush terrain can be seen all throughout the house, streams of natural light flood every room, a cool breeze flows freely through—all lending a relaxed, laid-back air to the home. To keep within the theme, most of the materials, fixtures, and furniture in the house are vintage—either secondhand or scrapped. Despite all of this good-doing, Emma still worries her home might seem “pretentious.” But looking around, there’s nothing pretentious about it—just a home they knew would sit right with nature and with the family.
