New Manila tower to be designed by Philippe Starck

yoo and Century Properties Group have teamed up for a new and exciting residential project in the Philippines. yoo inspired by Starck will define the amenity spaces of the new building and provide interior design inspirations for the living spaces. The project will officially launch the second quarter of 2012.

Set to launch in the second quarter of 2012, the tower will be literally a vertical community. Think a whole village that has levels instead of streets. This is the fourth such project by Century Properties in Manila; others include Trump Tower Manila, The Milano Residences designed by Versace Home and a condominium project designed by Missoni Home.

“This project interests me a lot because it’s about quality of life and the happiness of people who will live in this place, which will be so, so different,” stated Philippe Stark. “After finding the best location for the project, the local architect, and the best developer, Century Properties, we are now starting to work on creating a great and incredible vertical village. You will be proud to be part of this project which I have designed for you in the middle of Manila, Philippines.”

“This project will be the answer to design conscious global citizens who have been looking for a space that will reflect their tastes and express their progressive lifestyles,” said Marco Antonio, Century Properties Managing Director. “We’ve so far encountered the democratic designs of Philippe Starck through products and furniture. Soon, you will experience living in true Starck style here in Manila.”

The tower in Manila will highlight quality of life and happiness that Starck strives for in all of his projects.
