When the country’s top interior design minds are given a blank space, one can expect magic. And that’s exactly what happened with the recent collaboration of leading developer Robinsons Residences and publishing giant Summit Media’s Real Living magazine.

Six interior designers and three design teams took on the challenge of dressing up units at The Sapphire Bloc, Robinsons Residences’ prime condominium project in Ortigas Center. The designers were Wilmer Lopez, Mara Manalo, Erika Uichanco, Angelo Siochi, Carlo Mecate, Kristine Neri-Magturo, and design teams Carlos + Gomez Interior Design, Empire Designs, and Morfosis.

They were tasked to take inspiration from the Art Deco era while still meeting modern-day needs and matching the personalities of their envisioned clients. In a month’s time, they brought their vision to reality resulting in elegant and practical home designs.

Many of the designers turned to color to bring their aesthetic to life and chose to reinterpret Art Deco style for more contemporary living. Some designers used furniture to craft the type of ambiance that they want for their space. Siochi’s Nostalgic Vintage bedroom, for example, used a Harver Hill bed to anchor all the elements in, while adding unique pieces such as a ceramic stool and a geometric ottoman to maximize the space without making it too overwhelming.

For Siochi, the unit itself played a big part in the success of his mix-and-match design. “As an architect and interior designer, I was really impressed with the living spaces at The Sapphire Bloc. I think the space is sophisticated, easy to dress up, and perfect for dynamic living,” he said. The collaboration between The Sapphire Bloc and Real

Living magazine created nine beautifully designed home models that residents can take inspiration from in dressing up their own spaces.

The Sapphire Bloc recently won prestigious awards such as the Asia Pacific Property Awards and Philippine Property Awards for being an outstanding high-rise residential development.
