When siblings Tracy and Vincent Go decided to give their three-storey Tagaytay home a total makeover, they turned to husband-and-wife design team Fidel and Kathleen Henares for help. With the help of Fidel and Kathleen, the house now has a modern and angular look with clean lines. The streamlined style is completed with natural materials like wood, glass and stone to reflect the beauty of nature.

The property has also been divided carefully: Tracy took the top floor bedroom, while Vincent and his family occupies the bottom floor. The middle floor holds common areas like an unpartitioned kitchen, dining and living room, with enough extra space to house guests. The space is bathed in warm sunshine and filled with the cool breeze that Tagaytay is known for. It combines all that Tracy and Vincent wanted for the home—an unhampered view of the surroundings, natural light, and a feeling of spaciousness all around.
