article_master-planned.jpgEven at first visit, this family home seems a perfect fit—from the ample size appropriate for a large brood to the way the structure hugs the rolling terrain. The spacious and airy home, the architecture of which was designed by noted architect and interior designer Arlen de Guzman, stands as a testament to the lady of the house's design mantra—form follows function. Everything from the furniture layout to the traffic flow in and out of spaces helped determine how big or small the rooms would be, or even how the entire 900-sqm home would be shaped.

With windows letting light and air in throughout the white, streamlined structure, this home is fit for tropical living—and for a growing family 's needs. Browse through the gallery to check out its beautiful interiors.
