Ground broken on major residential scheme in the Philippines by Broadway Malyan 


The Milano Residences, an upmarket residential project in Manila being developed by one of the largest real estate firms in Asia, Century properties, has commenced on site. Designed by international architecture, urbanism and design practice Broadway Malyan and with public space interiors by renowned luxury brand Versace Home, the towering structure will be a notable landmark within the award winning developer's Century City masterplan, with completion scheduled for 2015.

The 53-storey tower will boast 340 flexible one to three bedrooms apartments, with prime units including penthouses, town houses and Italian-inspired ‘loggia’ lofts that feature private plunge pools and skygardens. Prof. Jason Pomeroy, director at Broadway Malyan, said: “This is a major milestone in this prestigious and high-profile residential project, which has drawn on the diverse skills, expertise and experience of our global team of expert designers.

“The scheme demonstrates the emerging trend of luxury branded condominium living in Asia, with hospitality-type boutique facilities and concierge services set to become regular features of high-end residential developments in the region, and the increasing role of luxury brands in the added lifestyle value of such developments.”

Milano Residences has been designed to embody the character of traditional Italian spaces by fostering ‘indoor-outdoor’ living through the use of sky loggias, sky piazzas and sky terraces that are reinterpreted through a series of vertical skycourts and gardens that punctuate the tower. The Italianate references compliment the Versace-branded interiors, while ensuring the building retains a grounded and timeless quality.

Sustainability has been a key driver in the design, with a passive design approach that employs narrow floor plates and high ceilings optimise daylight penetration and further opportunities for natural ventilation. The design also includes a green roof and an abundance of densely foliated vertical open spaces to help collect excess rainwater, irrigate planting within the building and reduce ambient temperatures. Meanwhile, materials have been selected on the basis of their environmental credentials as well as aesthetics.
