The practice of interior design is often associated with high-end, fancy spaces for hotels, upscale residences, and the like. That is true, but interior design is also for the enrichment and comfort of the general public, regardless of income or social standing.

Because of this, the pioneer interior design graduating batch of the De La Salle-College of St. Benilde (DLS-CSB) launches its graduation project ABaKaDa: Himig + Titik. In this project, the interior design students partnered with CSB’s Center for Social Action to renovate four different daycare centers in Manila. The chosen barangays coordinated with the students in upgrading their daycare facilities using traditional Filipino nursery rhymes as design inspiration. 

Deviating from the traditional interior design exhibit, the CSB students documented the renovation of each daycare center and will showcase this in various photographs, video presentations, and miniature scale models in a special exhibit at the 3/F Atrium of SM Aura, Bonifacio Global City from November 10 to 15, 2016. Get a sneak peek of some of the daycare centers here:
