Building a new house is already an insurmountable task on its own. Having a growing art collection to fit inside is equally challenging. In the case of the Gumila home, they were able to transform a 400sqm lot into a contemporary space filled with notable art pieces.

Architect Edwin Gumila and wife Jecelyn – also an architect and interior designer, took planning seriously as they wanted to maximize the functionality of the layout. Wanting to maximize every inch of space, they created simple and straightforward designs. To add a touch of character to the home, accent colors and unexpected architectural details were used.

The result is an art-filled treasure trove designed around the needs of a family. With a contemporary design, an impressive collection of local art, and a couple of designer furniture - the house was turned into a memorable display of hearth and home.
