MANILA, Philippines - Mañosa Properties Inc. (MPI) introduces another limited edition residential project, Campanilla Lane. The 3,027-square meter lot, located in the most prestigious part of New Manila, Quezon City will be open to only 20 owners for its 16 luxury apartments and four villas.
Inspired by the bahay-na-bato, each structure at Campanilla Lane fuses traditional Filipino elements with contemporary architecture. Like all Mañosa-designed homes, the luxury apartments and villas will be built using sustainable materials such as bamboo, harnessing both nature and technology for environment-friendly homes.
“Green architecture has always been a core value of ours, particularly dad. We’ve maximized natural ventilation and lighting in the designs and the community will have rainwater harvesting to use for their plants,” said Dino Mañosa, who co-founded MPI with his father, Francisco “Bobby” Mañosa, the renowned architect behind landmarks such as the Coconut Palace, San Miguel headquarters, Amanpulo Resorts, the Pearl Farm, the Shangri-La Mactan Hotel, the EDSA Shrine, The Medical City and the Eskaya Resort.
Campanilla Lane was painstakingly laid out to preserve the old trees, with a lush and edible landscape all around the property. “We secured the property over three years ago and with the Mañosa Architectural and Interior Design Team, we came up with over 55 schemes to be certain that what we have is the best possible within the strict restrictions of the local barangay,” he added.
The apartments will be kept exclusive and low-density, with only six levels. All units will measure approximately 260 square meters and will be comprised of three bedrooms with their own toilet and bath, a den, a powder room, and a maid’s room. Apartment Building One will only have one unit per floor while Apartment Building Two will have two apartments per floor. Both buildings will have penthouse units with lofts.
Each Mañosa villa will have four floors and its own garden. Intended to be a multi-generational home, the villas are built with two master bedrooms and come equipped with its own elevator. “Multi-generational means two things to us. First is being able to accommodate three generations in one home, the patriarch or matriarch, the second generation and the grandchildren, which is how I see my life with dad. The second meaning is we want people to keep their Mañosa home as their future ancestral home,” Manosa said.
Campanilla Lane’s unique mix of luxury apartments and villas will be complemented with a pool and a multi-function area -- where residents can meet, host parties, and play. “Through our professional property management service, we watch over our communities and make sure that the practices, processes and products that we use are sustainable. And we try to maintain that neighborly Filipino spirit and culture. MPI’s basic proposition is ‘creating communities that we want to live in’. That is my interpretation of Mahatma Gandhi’s ‘be the change you wish to see in the world’, I did not want to build cookie cutter boxes, I wanted communities I can imagine myself and my family living in,” emphasizes Dino.
Each unit of Campanilla Lane will be turned over with finishings which include cabinets, flooring, lighting fixtures and ceiling fans. “Practically everything you see in the model unit except for the loose furniture and appliances,” Manosa said. Furthermore, each unit has its own special plaque of authenticity designating it as a Mañosa Home.
