Missoni's First Interior-designed Residence Unveiled
Missonihome have already brought their vividly textured lifestyle concept to the world through their branded hotels in Edinburgh - I haven't stayed but I've eaten at their restaurant Cucina and it was fantastic, from the food to the pattered plates and walls - and in Kuwait. And now in partnership with Century Properties, the fashion house unveils the interior design of its first residential building, the 52-storey, tropical rainforest-infused design condo, Acqua Livingstone, in the Philippine capital of Manila.
Acqua Livingstone will have 645 units ranging from 27sqm to 140sqm, with one to three bedrooms. A private collection of special units called Acqua Privé will also be available to purchase.
Showcasing the regenerating Pasig River into its waterfront design, the residence 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 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.
Not for fans of beige.

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 (see below), 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 a meal in the open-air dining area.

Look at that. It's like the Garden of Eden with a swim-up bar.
