Comparing Libis, QC (Eastwood and Nuvo city) and future QC-CBD areas, which one has better appreciation and rental? Any thoughts?

I just realized that the shape and layout of the building is almost identical to Rockwell's Manansala.

The future looks good in Nuvo City
LIFE & STYLE By Millet M. Mananquil
Saturday, May 24, 2008

A new city is rising in Quezon City and it looks like a glimpse of the future. Imagine a place where you can live, work and enjoy a stress-free existence. Where life’s necessities are within reach. Where energy efficiency, water conservation and natural light diffusion are achieved in a beautiful setting.

It is called Nuvo City, which is situated on a 4.2-hectare prime property on the corner of Industria St. and C-5 in Libis Quezon City, where five elegant residential towers and three sleek commercial towers rise above a lifestyle retail center. This city of the future is a joint venture of premier developer Nuvoland Philippines Inc. and landowner Libra Agro Industrial Corp.

Residents enjoy a healthy and fun lifestyle starting from the landscaped ground level to the leisure facilities for sports such as swimming, tennis, badminton, and basketball plus workout gyms.

Soaring up to 45 levels, the residential towers demonstrate 21st century architectural drama. “The sculpting of space by natural light has been a top priority,” says Nuvoland Philippines Inc. president Kevin Belmonte. “Edmonds International Ltd. designed this masterpiece of modern living where the use of glass and a screen panel pattern layered with rapid vents allow natural air to penetrate for improved ventilation and comfort.”

The best thing about Nuvo City, says Belmonte, is the price. A 34-square-meter studio costs only from 2.3 plus million pesos. A 54-square-meter one-bedroom unit is only from 3.6 plus million pesos, and an 85-square-meter two-bedroom unit is only 6.7 plus million pesos payable, interest-free, within four years.

“In the mid-luxury market, rarely do you find a masterplanned development like Nuvo City that takes into consideration traffic circulation, which in this case is underground, as well as pedestrian-oriented open spaces, staggered building layouts to promote air circulation, light diffusion, and spaciousness,” explains Rally Martinez, Nuvoland executive director.

“We are creating a vertical city in the sky which integrates all the technology for a 21st century lifestyle,” Martinez adds.“It is a live-work-play environment all in one area, created for a market with a global sense of style.”

For Nuvo City’s model units, Martinez tapped three top interior design/architecture experts to show how each unit can be maximized, merging style with function.

Pixie Olivares:A Parisian Flair

Pixie Olivares is one designer who certainly understands condo living, having experienced it in Paris where she lived for six years as an interior design student at Ecole Superieure des Arts Graphiques et d’Architecture Interieure.

“One of my temporary apartments was a 12-square-meter studio, would you believe, and it was really a tight space,” Olivares laughs. So it was truly a pleasure for her to design a 34-square-meter studio at Nuvo City. And the result is beautiful.

“The challenge was to maximize the space without making it look cramped. So I kept the area whole, blurring divisions between the necessary functions of sleeping/entertaining/dining and cleansing/cooking to create an open and more expansive space.I used glass from floor to ceiling to enclose the bathroom. For privacy, the panels are frosted up to two meters.Transparency is also reiterated in the furniture: the dining table, side tables and shelves are crystal or glass. The dining chairs are made of mesh.”

The beauteous Olivares explains: “I wanted a sofa that didn’t have to open up into a bed to minimize movement.Instead, I used a wide sofa that is actually a full-sized bed. Put on some sheets and you’re ready to sleep.”

Her studio certainly gives a relaxed modern feel.“I do like a certain linearity in my work without being too rigid.I also like adding a splash of color to a basic neutral palette.”

Ed Calma: A New Yorker’s Sensibility

“ I lived in New York City for 12 years and I know the importance of having a flexible space that can be easily transformed to serve whatever use,” says Ed Calma, the Columbia University and Pratt-educated designer known for his modern works for the country’s cosmopolitan set. His latest design, La Salle College of Saint Benilde, is an inspiring masterpiece unparalleled in the local academe.

For a two-bedroom unit at Nuvo City, Calma designed the living/dining area to be used as “a space for recreation, dining, working, etcetera. So I used a series of fixed horizontal shelving which functions not only as a display system but also as a buffet table and a work table.The furniture and accessories around it are merely temporary and can be moved around and changed by the user.” Very ingenious.

Calma explains, “For further flexibility, I designed the smaller bedroom so it can be used as an extra bedroom or home office, by simply taking out the bed and replacing it with a consultation chair.”

When asked to define his design style, Calma answers: “I hope that I would never be labelled to have a specific ‘style’. I try to explore new ideas about form and space, and I try to express the idea clearly in the way parts of a system fit or relate together. If you get into a style, it usually means the end of exploration, experimentation and creativity.” Well said by a designer who is managing partner of the very dynamic firm headed by his father, the venerable Lor Calma.

J. Anton Mendoza: A Global Vision

Architect J Anton Mendoza is well-loved by the A-listers for the beautiful, modern homes he creates for them.When he designed a one-bedroom unit for Nuvo City, he imagined the user to be a progressive-minded, well-traveled person.

“To start with, I did the kitchen in black, which is not really for everybody.” But the result is simply sleek and fabulous.

One of the University of Santo Tomas College of Architecture’s proudly homegrown and eminent alumni, Mendoza has that global vision so evident in his works. “My biggest influences are the Bauhaus movement and great mid- century modern architects like Richard Neutra and Mies Van Der Rohe. The model unit at Nuvo City is inspired by the mid-century modernists,” Mendoza explains.

For furniture pieces, Mendoza chose a vertigo lamp by Patricia Urquiola, a dining set by Antonio Citterio, and an accent chair by Jeffrey Barnett.

The model unit is very Mendoza, just as sophisticated as his designs for restos like Sala Bistro and People’s Palace, and the lobbies of Serendra Two.

Three designs by the country’s best for a futuristic city designed by a world-class architectural firm? The future looks good.
