Some of the world’s most iconic names in architecture and design are turning their attention to the Philippines. Giorgio Armani, the houses of Versace and Missoni, Philippe Starck and John Hitchcox, and Daniel Libeskind are all doing projects in the country.
This is thanks in part to the efforts of Robbie Antonio, managing director and head of international collaborations of Century Properties Group—a real estate firm that is best known for its upscale projects like Essensa East Forbes in Taguig.
Robbie Antonio pursued partnerships with these iconic designers and brands for Century Properties.
The partnerships with Versace Home and MissoniHome have resulted in the two iconic design house’s home brands to interior-design Century’s Milano Residences and Acqua Livingstone, respectively. The outcome has been nothing less than fabulous—with each of the fashion house’s design aesthetics clearly imprinted in the interiors of the buildings.
Yoo inspired by Starck, the company founded by French designer Philippe Starck and British property developer John Hitchcox, meanwhile, is designing the Acqua Iguazu building. The exclusive sky deck, aptly called the Cielo, is something to behold with its Wonder Bar/Library, Dining Area, Movie Room, Pool and Lobby done in signature Starck style: sensually-engaging and intellectually-stimulating.
Last year, Robbie Antonio added another feather to the Century cap by successfully sealing a partnership with no less than two of the biggest names in international design—Giorgio Armani through his home and interior design brand Armani/Casa and award-winning architectural designer Daniel Libeskind.
Giorgio Armani needs no introduction as he has, for decades, been one of the leading names in fashion design and his Armani/Casa extends his classy, sophisticated aesthetic into home and living products. Libeskind, meanwhile, is best known for his one-of-a-kind architectural designs of several museums in Europe and North America and residential and commercial projects in different parts of the globe. He, too, is best known for winning the reconstruction design competition of the World Trade Center in New York.
In bringing these big names to the Philippines, Robbie Antonio and Century Properties are further enhancing the country’s image as the next luxury residential destination in Southeast Asia.
