Robinsons Land Corporation (RLC) and Security Land, a Security Bank subsidiary, have entered into a partnership to build Signa Designer Residences, a two-tower, high-rise, and upscale residential condominium in Makati City.
Located at the corner of Valero and Rufino streets in the Philippines' premier financial district, the project is RLC's first Makati City development and Security Land’s first such foray in Metro Manila.
Security Land owns the 2,570-square-meter property in Makati City while RLC will undertake the project's construction.
RLC has tapped prominent Filipino architects and designers for the residential development, the first time it handpicked an exclusively Filipino team for a project.
The team will be led by architect Royal Pineda, furniture and space designer Antonio "Budji" Layug, and furniture designer Kenneth Cobonpue.
Antonio "Budji" Layug was the first Filipino designer to be featured in Bloomingdale's, where his Budji's Giant Bamboo furniture designs were showcased. Among the establishments that have commissioned Layug's services are Walt Disney World's Polynesian Village in Orlando and Four Seasons in Hawaii and Costa Rica.
In partnership with Layug, Pineda's works go beyond Manila to span the region, including projects in Asia such as The Trees, Bangkok; Grand Napalai, Phuket; The Copper, Kuala Lumpur.
Cobonpue won in 2005 Design for Asia Award of Hong Kong, Asia's highest award, for his Lolah chair.
Prior to this, he won 12 Mugna Awards and four Katha Awards for design excellence at the annual Philippine International Furniture Exhibition, plus a Japan Good Design Award and the first prize at the Singapore International Design Competition.
He studied industrial design at the Pratt Institute in New York, and furniture marketing and production at the Export-Akademie Baden Württemberg in Germany, and apprenticed for a leather and wood workshop in Florence, Italy.
Among Cobonpue’s clients include actor Brad Pitt and Warner Brothers.
Signa Designer Residences offers one-, two- and three-bedroom units with or without balconies. Unit owners will also have the freedom to choose the color scheme that best suits their personality from two Designer Series options.
