Zoey Courtyard Residences is a unique housing typology presenting a different vision of urban life for of Cavite. Located in Noveleta, a town of 41,678 people, it contrasts the large residential subdivisions of small or single housing units located within 1.5 kilometers from the Cavite Special Economic Zone with over 200 industrial locators.
Derived from the Greek word “life,” Zoey is a linear loop structure that wraps around a protected pedestrian core. This is meant to allow much larger scale and greater density while maintaining a continuous open space. The development acts as a community center for Noveleta, responding to the surrounding estates and to the eco-zone by developing a scale that can serve as an organizing center and complement the nearby industrial plants.
Zoey consists of walk-up ground level shop houses, two-storey row houses, modular apartment units, and executive suites. The units wrap around a vast pedestrian-only courtyard. This courtyard is zoned into distinct public spaces that allow interaction among different residential demographics and visitors. It has a grand lawn activity zone, a pool and amenities zone, a sports zone, and a 300-capacity clubhouse wrapping around this courtyard.
There is a distinct multi-storey profile that allows better air flow and dramatic views from both inside and outside the courtyard. This articulation forms peaks and dips creating more unique spaces for the residences. The centerpiece of wide, landscaped expanse of open space and leisure area create a unifying element for the whole development while infusing a resort-like ambiance in the community.
