From Acqua Livingstone:
The first residential building in the world that will bear the creative and colorful mark of MISSONIHOME will rise in Manila through the 52-story Acqua Livingstone – the fourth of six condominium towers in the P13.5-billion (USD $315.9 million) Acqua Private Residences project, developed in the Philippine capital by Century Properties Group, Inc.
The Acqua Livingstone tower will immerse residents in the rich and colorful experience of a MISSONIHOME -designed space, which is not available elsewhere except in the Missoni-branded hotels in Edinburgh and Kuwait.
Missoni, founded in 1953 as a knitwear label in Italy by Ottavio and Rosita Missoni, grew into a fashion empire run by three generations of the Missoni family. Globally recognized for its creative use of patterns and prints, Missoni earned the acclaim of the fashion world throughout the decades for elevating knitwear to an artistic form, and for its inventiveness and consistently progressive style.
“MISSONIHOME is known for creating its own style that reflects a celebration of life,” said Vittorio Missoni, Marketing Director and shareholder of Missoni S.p.A. “Our brand is an experience of happiness, excitement, beauty, creativity, style and elegance. We are inspired by the seasons of nature and we play with color because life is more beautiful with color.”
“Living in a MISSONIHOME-designed address is a rare lifestyle experience. For the first time it will be possible at Acqua Livingstone,” said Project Head and Century Managing Director Marco Antonio, who elaborated the tower’s design highlights: bold colors and energetic forms in the lobbies, hallways and even elevators, accentuated by equally arresting furniture. The multi-level amenity area called The Canopy, located at the building’s skydeck, serves as the pinnacle of MISSONIHOME’s design imprint.
The Canopy’s lower level will house functions rooms, business center, an indoor and outdoor gym, Jacuzzi, a library and spa. The upper level is a social space dedicated to interaction and entertainment with an amphitheatre, lounge, DJ booth and dance floor, pool with swim up bar, and barbecue facilities. Tying these two levels together is a fanciful organic wire-mesh tree that winds its way up and connects to the mezzanine floor, where residents can enjoy surrounding views or enjoy a meal in the open-air dining area.
With floating lights, patterned surfaces, Missoni shapes and forms guiding the landscape, The Canopy provides a true Missoni lifestyle experience, a blend of art and function that completely redefines the condo living experience.
Aside from the amenities within the tower, Acqua Livingstone residents will also enjoy the tropical rainforest-infused design of the entire masterplanned development. Touted as the Philippines’ first residential Eden, Acqua Private Residences Residents is located in Mandaluyong City and is connected to the financial capital of Makati City via a new bridge. Showcasing the regenerating Pasig River into its waterfront design, it features a central amenity area called The Pebble, a four-storey sports and leisure complex with three waterfalls. At the Pebble’s ground floor is the RiverWalk Promenade that features a delightful stretch of restaurants, bars and cafes. Next to it is the Boardwalk, where an exclusive water shuttle will take residents to and from the Makati riverside.
