Chinese New Year is a yearly celebration that marks the beginning of the lunar calendar year. The holiday marks the start of the new year of traditional lunisolar calendars, and it is now observed around the world.
Today, Spring Festival is celebrated in China and Hong Kong; Lunar New Year is also celebrated in the Philippines, Tibet, Vietnam, Singapore, Indonesia, Malaysia, and places with large Chinese populations. Though the festival varies by country, it is dominated by themes of rebirth, reunion, and hope.
With the arrival of the year of the Tiger, Archinect highlighted “a selection of built projects by architecture and design firms across East and Southeast Asia”, listing WTA’s Twelve Luxury Flats among the pile.
Twelve Luxury Flats
The practicality of vertical living meets the comfort of an urban townhouse in this sixteen-storey residential condominium rising on a 586 square meter lot in an upscale neighborhood in San Juan City, Metro Manila, Philippines. Each of the twelve luxurious residential flats is programmed to have generous spaces with day lighting and ventilation on all four faces of every unit. At one floor per unit, it offers the luxury of living in an expansive space with unrestricted views.
The residential units are planned to cater to a unique setting of both private moments and social gatherings. The plan centers around a living and dining suite bounded by floor to ceiling windows that open up to a luxurious veranda. This personal yet very open space allows for a blurring of the indoor and outdoor and creates an affinity with the sky.
