As part of a special competition for up-and-coming designers, Real Living has partnered with Avida Land and a team of noted interior designers to style a model unit based on the one-bedroom layout of Avida Towers Vita at Vertis North, Ayala Land's master-planned estate in Quezon City.

"By creating this Avida x RL Open House, our readers can now walk through the pages of Real Living to get an up close look at a space designed with the Real Living reader in mind," shares Real Living's associate publisher Tom Castañeda.

Last June, Real Living paired three interior designers fairly new to the industry—Gino Eraña, Jane Karla Samson, and Joevie Andrew Tuquib—with seasoned professionals—Kristine Neri-Magturo, Hannah Acab-Faustino, and John Vigilia—who served as their mentors throughout the design process.

Each designer was assigned a section in the Avida Towers Vita at Vertis North Showroom and given a P100,000 budget, as well as access to the large selection of coating solutions from Nippon Paint Philippines and appliances from Electrolux. A panel of judges from Real Living and Avida evaluated each designer's work based on originality, resourcefulness, and overall "wow" factor. Gino emerged as the winner and was part of RL's 25 Creatives to Watch list featured in the July 2015 issue.

"As Avida celebrates its 25th anniversary of making dream homes a reality, this project allows us to communicate the benefits of living in an Avida unit—thoughtfully designed spaces that are functional, stylish, and sensible. Avida Towers Vita is the perfect canvas for this project. The design of the space is aligned with the lifestyle of young professionals and starting families who are looking to start their very first home at Avida Towers Vita," shares Avida  Corporate Marketing Manager, Anne Baylon.
