MISSONIHOME for Acqua Livingstone in the Philipines will be the first ever Missoni-branded luxury residential building.
If you can’t get enough of those zany zig-zags and stripey knits that Italian fashion house Missoni is famed for, then rejoice, because now you can live in an actual Missoni house. Well, apartment actually. The Acqua Livingstone tower in Manila promises to ‘immerse residents in the rich and colorful experience of a MISSONIHOME-designed space.’ That’s the interiors arm of the brand, the people behind the Missoni hotels in Edinburgh and Kuwait.
What can one expect in their luxury Missoni flat? According to the developers you’ll get ‘bold colors and energetic forms’ in the lobbies, hallways and even elevators, plus some ‘arresting furniture’, whatever that means. The building will house a multi-level amenity area called The Canopy, which features a business centre, swimming pool, gym, Jacuzzi, library, amphitheatre, lounge, DJ booth and dance floor. It doesn’t stop there: a ‘fanciful organic wire-mesh tree’ connects to the mezzanine floor, where residents can enjoy panoramic vistas and open-air dining area.
Now, I was going to say here’s another one for your ‘If I were a billionaire’ shopping list, but if my calculations (with a little help from xe.com) are correct, these apartments aren’t all that pricey, starting at just £56,000 a piece, going up to £300,000 or more for one of the special Acqua Prive unit which includes something called a Sky Garden. If you’re prepared to relocate to the Philipines then that’s a designer property bargain, no?
