Botanika Nature Residences by Filigree took home the Best Apartment Philippines Award with a five star rating from the Asia Pacific Property Awards 2018—an award-giving body of the esteemed International Property Awards, a celebration of the highest level of achievement by companies in the real estate sector. The award held in Bangkok is but an affirmation that the concept behind the upscale garden resort-inspired condominium located in the dynamic Metro South is truly exceptional and world-class. The nominated properties in the Asia Pacific Property Awards are judged by an independent panel of 80 industry experts, focusing on design, quality, service, innovation, originality, and commitment to sustainability.
With this award, coupled by the recent bestowment of a 3-star rating for design from the Philippine Green Building Council in the first quarter of this year, Botanika Nature Residences can now truly lay claim to being at par with the world’s ultra high-end and green oriented residential towers, in keeping with its commitment to sustainability, a feat yet to be matched by similar developments in Manila and country at large.
Behind the achievements of the Botanika Nature Residences is the project development team and the noted consultants who were brought on board for their expertise: Leandro V. Locsin Partners as Architects of Record; Architecture International as International Architectural Consultant; Singapore-based AECOM as Landscape Consultant; and Miaja Design Group for interior design—all recognized names in their respective fields, with an impressive portfolio of projects between them.
Furthermore, with Botanika’s inimitable architectural design direction, its first-class amenities, and of course its generously-sized condominium units, it comes as no surprise that it has caught the attention of such reputable and prestigious industry bodies—both here and abroad—thus garnering accolades and the recognition it truly deserves.
Botanika, a premium 13-storey low-density residential development, is purposely designed to have an iconic leaf shaped structure and is intentionally set wide apart with a towering atrium at the core—highlighted by a calming running water feature plus a scenic elevator for unhindered views. This unique design concept allows for natural light and ventilation to stream in, which in turn nurtures the lush central space while reducing energy and water consumption, an innovative feature not found in other upscale developments. The unique terraced layout of the towers also assures residents of privacy and exclusivity, and unobstructed views of the green expanse beyond.
Amenity-wise, of note are the tiered kiddie and lap pools surrounded by a lush landscape complete with a sun deck, outdoor and indoor play areas for kids, an amphitheater, a business center, and a library—no stone was left unturned for the sheer delight of residents.
Finally, Botanika’s condominium units—ranging from two bedroom suites, three-bedroom flats, three-bedroom Garden Bi-level units, five-bedroom Garden Bi-level units, and a grand penthouse, with sizes ranging from 123 to up to 343 sqm.—are as remarkable and expansive as they can get, a result of superior space planning and by keeping in mind the needs of homeowners.
“The recognition from the prestigious Asia Pacific Property Awards is a confirmation that the direction we’ve set forth for Botanika Nature Residences is indeed world-class,” says Kate Ilagan, Filigree head. “This serves to inspire all of us who were behind the project, and we intend to continue this level of excellence across all our luxury developments.”
