In the words of the late actress Audrey Hepburn, “Elegance is the only beauty that never fades.”
Elegance is a concept that defies time and space. Beyond luxury and decor, it is all about experience. It is the way a particular place or event imprints itself on our minds due to unique elements and well-designed details.
In architecture, elegance is rare. While many buildings strive to deliver practical and efficient spaces, rarely do we see structures that both deliver and impress. Fortunately, one such rarity is set to rise on our shores, giving us an opportunity to see elegance realized the Filipino way.
Let us explore an upcoming project that aims to translate the elegant lifestyle into unforgettable experiences.
Aurelia Residences, a joint venture between upscale developer Shang Properties Inc. and Robinsons Land, may soon redefine the benchmark of exquisite living.
Luxury homes in the sky
Composed of three towers, the Aurelia Residences is set to rise in the Bonifacio Global City (BGC). Its prime location makes it an ideal home for those looking for a residence within the vicinity of Bonifacio High Street, Manila Golf Club and Forbes Park. Burgos Circle and Manila Polo Club are also just a few minutes away from the site, which will allow future residents to enjoy the exclusive lifestyle.
The Aurelia Residences aims to provide residents a balanced sense of privacy and community. Each floor will only have a maximum of six units with each unit fitted with a balcony and three bedrooms. The floor areas of these residences range from 240 sqm to 339 sqm. Suffice to say, the residences offer ample space and generous views of the Makati and Taguig skyline.
A place for your passions
The first two floors of the complex will contain building amenities.
Luxury is at its peak here, with residents having exclusive access to lifestyle spaces such as a sauna, private theater, fitness gym, function halls with terraces, and swimming pools. The amenity floors are also family-friendly as they offer children’s play areas and a pet garden.
In terms of facilities, Aurelia Residences caters to our modern essentials. The building is fitted with 100 percent power backup and also offers a charging point for electric vehicles. A videocom system provides an immediate link to the reception lobby and fiber optics ensure that each unit has high-speed connectivity. RFID access will be provided for residents and vehicles to ensure security within the premises.
Architecture of elegance
The design of Aurelia Residences has been thoroughly thought out by recognizable designers from the international scene. The building itself was conceived by the American firm Skidmore Owings & Merril while the interiors were designed by the Italian firm Architettura D’ Interni.
The structure resembles a blooming flower composed of three petals. The form permits maximum daylight and wind to reach all residential units. Each residence has access to stunning views and natural breeze, providing an immediate connection to nature despite the urban setting.
The interiors of the project remain rooted in Filipino culture. The grand lobby, in particular, is fitted with an awe-inspiring chandelier inspired by the Filipino terno. It resembles a piece of fabric undulating in the light, a poetic nod to our proud heritage.
Timeless beauty made into a home
Driven by a desire to redefine elegance, Aurelia Residences exemplifies simplified luxury. Going beyond material and ostentation, the project aims to bring elegance through unforgettable experiences. It is luxury without the frills and pomp, timeless in design, and Filipino in spirit.
