The owners of this home moved from Manila to Davao and immediately made plans to build their dream home. Teaming up with architect Patrick Tan and designers Wilan Dayrit and Leah Lazana, the owners decided that the kitchen was to be the focal point of the home and that the aesthetic was to be modern-tropical.

Furniture by acclaimed designer Kenneth Cobonpue and sculptures by Ann Pamintuan are found all throughout the house. The owners say that the interior is the soul of the house and that's exactly what they have--a house with a soul.
