About High-Rise Apartment

Nestled in the bustling heart of the Philippines, this 2017 masterpiece reflects the epitome of urban chic, making the most of its panoramic city views.

Contemporary Elegance in the Sky

Enter the living room, where minimalism speaks volumes. Sunlight bathes the sleek, grey-toned sofas and glass coffee tables, creating a harmonious blend of warmth and sophistication. Each piece of furniture in the apartment plays its role without clutter, exuding an air of modern comfort that is both inviting and bold.

Transitioning seamlessly, the bathroom’s design makes a statement with its clean lines and marble accents. Matte black fixtures contrast against the stone, offering a modern twist to the timeless elegance of the space. It’s a symphony of design elements, orchestrated to craft a space of serenity and style.

A Masterclass in Marble and Light

The adjacent vanity area continues the marble motif, pairing it with reflective surfaces that amplify the space’s natural light. Here, the design language of the High-Rise Apartment holds a conversation with the city’s skyline, allowing residents to prepare for the day against a backdrop of skyscrapers.

In the bedroom, a blend of textures invites rest and relaxation. Herringbone wood meets marble, while soft textiles add layers of comfort. The strategic use of lighting highlights the room’s geometry, providing a serene environment for the end of a busy day.

Culinary Chic in the Urban Oasis

The kitchen offers a culinary retreat with its state-of-the-art appliances set against the cool marble backdrop. Functionality meets aesthetics here, where the clean, white cabinetry presents a crisp, clutter-free environment, perfect for both cooking and conversing.

Concluding our tour, the snug seating area reinforces the apartment’s ethos: less is more. With a custom-built sofa tailored to fit the space and a single piece of art that captivates, this nook encapsulates the designer’s vision of creating an urban oasis amidst the city’s ceaseless rhythm.

Every corner of the High-Rise Apartment by Ruth Bautista is a testament to contemporary design done right. With a focus on open space, natural light, and refined materials, it’s a space that offers a tranquil escape in the heart of the Philippines.
