The Buensalido Architects Townhouse pays homage to the festive and positive attitude of the Filipino culture using playful architectural details. Designed for a young newlywed couple, the home is bursting in colorful aesthetics.

Throughout the home, guests will encounter small cut-outs of triangles scattered across the walls and ceilings. These geometric silhouettes mimic the vibrant flags strung along the streets during fiestas and festivals. Hidden light fixtures provide a soft glow and add emphasis onto these peculiar cut-outs. The minimalist and asymmetrical pattern is an eye-catching yet subtle way to add interest to an otherwise sleek modern space. Vibrant, contemporary furnishings have been chosen to maintain a common theme throughout the picturesque condo.

Bursting in vivid and spirited attributes, the Buensalido Architects Townhouse is a fun and celebratory nod to the Filipino attitude.
