It was no surprise that homeowners Leo and Che Nicolas were very particular about style while they were building their first home. Being creative entrepreneurs, they certainly knew how to put their “notion in motion,” which, coincidentally, is also the name of their videography business.

In 2015, the couple purchased a 400sqm lot in the city where Leo grew up in. They had a clear idea of the kind of house they wanted. “Gusto namin ng box-style house. Ayaw namin ng maraming details,” Che shares. In fact, she admits she is drawn to masculine elements.

Tumingin ako sa Pinterest for inspiration. Usually mga minimalist industrial homes ang nagugustuhan ko. Sa RL website, I would print-screen the homes that I like,” she adds. The couple worked with ARQON, a company run by their architect-friends, Manuel and April Pulido, and Chino Buitizon. ARQON says of this home, “By its very nature, industrial-inspired homes tend to be minimalist and straightforward, with neutral palettes of gray and earth tones on raw surfaces.”

“We worked with 350 square meters of space and transformed it into a four-bedroom, 2 ½ bathroom retreat. Replete with a man cave and equipment room, of course,” adds Arqon.

See how neutral color palettes make this home the perfect backdrop for a young family’s creative passions.
