This tropical design book showcases the innovative interior designs and architecture of The Philippines most luxurious homes.
Start with a warm tropical climate. Add an abundance of exotic natural building material. And then let the cross currents of Asian design and aesthetics create a rich architectural alchemy of it's own. The result? The exquisite homes of the Philippines, a perfect balance of form and functionality, beautifully portrayed in Tropical Living.
This Filipino design book presents over 30 of the latest homes in the archipelago: from a classic old-world penthouse in the art-deco Malate area to the creative homes of artists of Antipolo: from Asian-fusion villas on Batangas Bay to the elite Philippine Mediterranean manors of Forbes park, the book covers Filipino taste in all of its manifestations.
With over 400 fabulous full-color photographs and texts from some of the country's leading architects and authors, there is also an inspirational sourcebook of contemporary tropical furnishings. It is a book of ideas to dip into, and savor.
