It was a myriad of captivating hues, textures and shapes that warmly greeted guests and friends to the showroom launch of Acqua Livingstone the fourth tower to rise at Acqua Private Residences and the first residential building in the world with interiors designed by the Italian lifestyle brand Missoni Home.
The showroom opening was celebrated at the Acqua Sales Center, Mandaluyong City. A groundbreaking event and a press conference with Century Properties executives Marco R. Antonio and Robbie R. Antonio, took place earlier in the day.
In the evening, a party was held with guests of honor, elegantly chauffeured to the event in BMW cars. VIPs included Missoni shareholder and managing director Vittorio Missoni; T&J Vestor creative director Wanda Jelmini and T&J Vestor general manager Edoardo Roda.
“I want to live in this residence,” said Italian Ambassador Luca Fornari who also graced the event.
Developed by leading real estate firm Century Properties Group Inc., Acqua’s rainforest-infused aesthetic permeated the entire showroom to give guests a full preview of how the 2.4-hectare residential Eden will be constructed in the next few years. A lobby with a two-story waterfall, an outdoor space and boardwalk with tropical foliage and water streams, and the delightful Missonihome interior-designed spaces for Acqua Livingstone provided a refreshing and colorful welcome to Manila’s summer season.
“Tonight we celebrate how Century Properties and Missoni Home share the same vision for Acqua and Acqua Livingstone. The design of Acqua is nature-infused, and if you look at the designs of Missonihome, you will also see touches of nature in each of their creations, from the lobby you are in right now down to the model units they have designed for the project,” said Marco Antonio, Century Properties managing director and Acqua project head. “As we unveil the first and only residential project in the world interior designed by Missonihome, we hope that you will see with us the overall vision and concept of designer living in living design.”
Missoni shareholder and managing director Vittorio Missoni expressed his thoughts on working with the Antonios and Century Properties.
“We’ve done hotel projects before, but this is really our first design in real estate. When I met the Antonio brothers, I found them to be such fantastic people representing a fantastic company, and I knew that they would represent Missonihome in the best way through this project.”
Guests who came in their own expression of the come in living color attire were treated to sumptuous cocktail concoctions by Cibo di M. A magnificent fireworks display after the short program celebrated the fruitful partnership of Century Properties and Missonihome, after which DJ Nina Saputil kicked off the evening’s party.
