6 Things to Love About Dingdong Dantes' Home in Quezon City

Spot the interesting details in this Kapuso star's former penthouse space

Before Dingdong Dantes married Kapuso actress Marian Rivera, he lived on the top floor of a residential building designed by his grandfather Enrique Gonzales. With the help of Architects Ria and Glen Malig of Gamaconstruct, the 300sqm penthouse unit was transformed into a Modern Asian bachelor pad.

The Modern Asian Resort Feel of the Facade

The penthouse unit looks exactly like a luxury Asian resort in the city. Its façade is defined by the slanted roof, the wooden columns, and the tropical touches.

The Opulent Feel of the Living Area

The elaborate lighting system and fully upholstered furniture pieces make the living area feel grand and luxurious.

The Action Figures in the Bar Area

One corner of the living area has been turned into a bar perfect for relaxing and entertaining. The space is completed with an expensive Batman suit and 18-inch action figures kept in eight wooden shelves

The Well-loved Dining Set in the Dining Area

Who says that celebrities can't be practical? Instead of buying a brand new dining set, Dingdong used an old dining set that he has owned for many years. 

On the other side of the space is a modestly-sized kitchen completed with a kitchen island and breakfast nook.

The Functional Accent Wall in the Master Bedroom

Instead of a traditional headboard, the bed is complemented by an accent wall. The accent wall has lighted niches used to display his acting awards and precious belongings.

The Quirky Touches in the Guest Bathroom

The guest bathroom is defined by the dark tiles and the unique pieces. These surprising choices include the provocative nearly-nude painting by Louis Groff above the urinal. There is even a replica mask of Jason from Halloween and a replica bladed glove of Freddie Kruger from Nightmare on Elm Street in a wall-mounted shelf above the water closet.
