THE ART OF ELEGANCE

From the first architectural sketches, to the careful exploration of fabrics and finishes, through to the final delivery of our overarching vision, a consistent thread flows through everything: the passionate search for elegance.

It is the thrill of the search that unites the extraordinary team of designers and artisans behind Aurelia Residences. Elegance is a mood, an attitude, a way of life. And while the idea of elegance – and elegant living – is universal, like art itself it is both ephemeral and timeless. With regard to elegance, however, one thing is certain – just like a work of art: you will know it when you see it.

 

 
WHAT IS AURELIA?

The name Aurelia evokes a place of beauty, desirability, and classic Italian elegance. At its heart, the name draws inspiration from “Aureus”, the beautiful Latin root word for gold; and “Aura” – a distinctive atmosphere or quality that surrounds a person, thing, or place. Aurelia suggests something that is intrinsically beautiful – a mood, an atmosphere, an aura, if you will, of elegance.

 
THE AURELIA SYMBOL

Symmetry and lightness. The Aurelia Symbol inspires a sense of ease and balance. Architecturally-speaking, the three-petal form brings in natural light and flowing ventilation, which in turn maximizes and widens viewing angles, providing each exclusive residence with unique and stunning panoramic views of both the cityscape and the surrounding greenery.

 
BUILDING FROM THE GROUND UP

Quotes from Architect Brian Lee, Design Partner, Skidmore, Owings & Merrill

“Elegance is memorable and makes you think. It has underlying clarity and functionality. It has physical presence with graceful proportions and scale, notable materiality, thoughtful detail, and considers color and light. It has integrity of conception and resolution.”

– Brian Lee

THE ARCHITERCTURAL VISION

“Aurelia is designed to feel like a sophisticated collection of elegant homes. We all want a secure and comforting sense of privacy, but also want those features and characteristics that create a friendly and trusted sense of community. This project should feel uniquely Filipino in look, experience, and spirit.”

ENVISIONING SPACES

“We create environments that recognize their context and place and try to imagine how people use spaces and adapt it to make it their own. Good design is innovative, bold as well as simple, and thoughtful and well-crafted to the smallest detail.”

CRAFTING THE AURELIA LIFESTYLE

Quotes from Francesca Muzio, Founder and CEO, FM Architettura D’Interni

“Behind the sense of elegance there is always a deep thought, a code transposed into a person or ambient moment.

‘’Through that authenticity’’ is the ultimate symbol of effortless elegance and personal style.”

– Francesca Muzio

SPATIAL DESIGN VISION

“As an Italian designer with a studio based in a region of Italy filled with traditional craftsmen, we have always been strong proponents of the use of artisan techniques and materials in any style of design. With Aurelia Residences, we propose a new standard of Luxury: a vision that is as much about experience as it is about materiality and design: of Italian sensibilities infused with the amazing heritage of the Philippines.”

THE EXPERIENCE OF WALKING INTO THE LOBBY

To feel a sense of “meraviglia” – a feeling of wonder and amazement – on entering their homes. As for the grand lobby space – we fell in love with the movement of the Filipino Terno and custom-designed a stunning chandelier inspired by this traditional garment, reconstructing the beautiful effect of the twisted fabric.

THE ART OF ELEGANCE

With its prime location in Bonifacio Global City, Aurelia Residences offers commanding views across the city and beyond.

One of the key architectural challenges was to maximize the viewing angles throughout the tower, across all floors and in all orientations. The signature Aurelia three-petal form provides an elegant architectural solution to this challenge by opening up the façade to dramatic views in all directions.

To the north, stunning views of the Manila Golf Club, Forbes PArk and the Makati skyline with Manila Bay on the horizon. To the South-East, the serene view of Laguna Bay in the distance.
