by Elizabeth Reyes and Luca Invernizzi Tettoni




Overview -
Pore over this collection of cutting-edge home designs from The Philippines.

The Tropical House: Cutting Edge Design in the Philippines celebrates a growing trend toward globalization in interior design. More than 25 stunning houses and condos in and around Manila, the Philippines, evoke a distinctive tropical-modern-fusion style that is gaining popularity around the world. All these elegant residences comprise a synthesis of East-West trends and contemporary furnishings--as Filipino designers merge sleek modernist furniture with local designers' "soulful creations" in natural hardwoods and other tropical materials.

Over 250 full-color photographs of outstanding Philippines architecture will inspire readers with their diverse and contemporary looks. From vintage charm to modern with bold, artful accents, to the clean, glamorous new look known as "contemporary chic," this book showcases the myriad tastes of the Philippines' design world. The selection features modernist designs referred to as Zen or Minimalist; admires the modern Global Eclectics, those well-traveled collectors of beautiful objects from East and West; and celebrates the individualists who mix European furniture with acutely creative accents from local designers.

Take a glimpse into the rich world of the Philippines interior design in The Tropical House.
