TREND: MINIMALIST INDUSTRIAL
PERIOD: Most of the '90s to early 21st Century
Modernist architects like Richard Meier, Tadao Ando, (and locally, Ed Calma, and Joey Yupangco) had their field day with this style, characterized by cast-in-place concrete, raw concrete floors, exposed steel structure, and frameless glass.
GET IT NOW: This raw, hard-edged style can be softened up and personalized with a variety of artwork and whimsical furniture.
TREND: CLEAN TROPICAL
PERIOD: Latter part of the '90s, early 21st Century
Best exemplified by Filipino designer Budji Layug, Clean Tropical has the most staying power because of its appropriateness for our country and climate.
GET IT NOW: This is such a timeless look, but you can update it with minimal accents in bold colors.
