When in Manila, do as the Italians do

MANILA, Philippines - In the world of high luxury, the tangible is just as valuable as the intangible. Fancy, upscale homes, flashy sports cars, couture fashion and cutting-edge technology are no mere excesses — they are daily testaments of a person’s taste, style and class, tantamount to a life well-lived.

At Milano Residences, the Philippines’ first internationally-branded designer and luxury condo, residents can bask in high luxury, with exquisite design and supreme quality seen in its amenity spaces interior designed by Versace Home.

“When people own a unit at Milano, they’re not just moving into a condo unit. They’re moving into a lifestyle,” said Robbie Antonio, Century Properties managing director and project head of Milano Residences. “This is the first luxury condo in the country that will truly epitomize designer living at its foremost sense and the everyday experience of residents in the building, the amenities, and in their units will be extraordinary.”  

Extraordinary, indeed. Versace Home’s elegant and timeless aesthetic is the Milano’s visual centerpiece: from its double-height grand lobby with polyurethane bubble sofas designed by Versace exclusively for the condo, sunburst coffee tables made of crystal and steel, and the iconic Medusa head porcelain accents all the way to the swimming pool, customized with Italian marble stone tiling and engraved with Versace’s signature Greek fret.

“When people own a unit at Milano, they’re not just moving into a condo unit. They’re moving into a lifestyle,” says Robbie Antonio, Century Properties managing director and project head of Milano Residences.

The spa, fitness center, business center, library, juice bar, and other amenities likewise showcase Versace Home’s focus on impeccable detailing, using custom-made and high-quality fabrics, tiles and other fine materials.

Residents at the Milano may opt to have their private penthouses, townhouses, one to three-bedroom spaces, or Loggia units interior-designed and accessorized with the Italian label’s home furniture, tapestry, plates, silverware and décor. Samples of these exquisite interior inspirations may be seen in the project’s showroom at the Pacific Star Building in Makati that was unveiled early this year.

The three-bedroom suite’s dining area, for instance, is adorned with a chrome finished dining table engraved with Versace’s Greek key on its four legs and black leather-upholstered dining chairs with white and black lacquered finishes.

In his speech at the showroom unveiling, Versace Group CEO Gian Giacomo Ferraris said, “Our specific contribution as Versace Home will be the design of each single residence, proposing interiors for various different living solutions and the planning of the communal zones, such as the lobby, library and fitness areas. As a result, the Milano Residences will be the place for experiencing the exclusive; rich in glamour, luxury and Italian style as offered by Versace, in the contest of an extremely contemporary and dynamic city like Manila.”
