Discover Starck-inspired features in an urban jungle setting

Shares

Touted as the "first residential Eden" in Manila for its rainforest theme, Acqua Private Residences by  Century Properties has a new designer tower-the fifth of the proposed six towers named after exotic waterfalls found around the world.

Acqua Iguazu is named after the Iguazu Falls in Brazil and is fittingly made up of more than 50 floors. Its common areas boast interiors designed by yoo inspired by Starck (referring to the French superstar designer Philippe Starck, one of the most esteemed living designers of modern times). Prospective unit owners have an option to have their own spaces done up by the international design team, with three styles to choose from: Minimal, Culture, and Nature.
