Two Botanika: Well curated living spaces with wellness at the core
Written by Amy R. Remo
It’s a fitting blueprint for today’s times—distinct upscale spaces that do not only ensure convenience, accessibility, and access to nature, but also enhance lifestyles and nurture wellness.
Two Botanika, the second tower to rise within Botanika Nature Residences in Filinvest City, indeed stands as the quintessential choice of the savvy, discerning buyers, who have come to appreciate lush open spaces and wellness as much as they value a prime, central location, superb artistry, and luxurious amenities. This early, this exclusive vertical enclave aptly shows the promise of becoming the metro’s next wellness community.
Two Botanika will continue the legacy of “crafted communities” by luxury real estate brand, Filigree—which has long been known to build and deliver landmark developments in choice locations.
Even prior to the pandemic, Filigree has already seen the value of creating sustainable, resilient, wellness-centered developments that would allow its residents to live a healthy, thriving lifestyle. As it embarks on its latest development, Filigree is raising the bar anew to bring to the market sophisticated residences that will showcase its expertise in delivering the best in luxury living through space.
“Space is the new luxury,” Daphne Sanchez, Business Unit Head for Filigree, said during the launch.
And Two Botanika will be an exquisite reflection of that. According to Sanchez, this stunning vertical village will not only carry all the great facets of Tower 1 but will also present a renewed experience with additional building features.
Green, sustainable design
A stellar team of experts is now carrying out the vision for this condo complex. As it is, Tower 1 was already awarded a 4-star rating under the Building for Ecologically Responsive Design Excellence (BERDE) by Philippine Green Building Council—a solid testament to Filigree’s commitment to building green structures. And it’s this same kind of staunch commitment that investors and homebuyers can expect from Two Botanika, which will not only be a showcase of artistry but also of sustainability.
Conceptualizing this architectural refinement are design giants Architecture International and Leandro V Locsin Partners, while AECOM Singapore has been tapped for landscape design. The Miaja Design Group designed the host of modern, rejuvenating common areas you will find at Two Botanika, while the space planning and interior design of the model units were done by Periquet Galicia Inc.
Andy Locsin of Leandro V Locsin Partners together with Bill Higgins of Architecture International pointed out that they created a seamless indoor-outdoor experience for residents.
“We made sure that the layouts of the buildings lend spaces for people. Spaces are intertwined… The idea is to weave the landscape through the buildings so you have a feeling of shared amenity. The circular form (of the tower) presents an opportunity to have air flow on all surfaces—it induces cool air flow,” Locsin explained.
“We wanted something more organic. There are no straight lines in nature so (the structure is) curvilinear… The buildings in the entire complex are connected by landscape. The buildings open to nature, giving you connection to your neighbors,” Higgins said.
“It is going back to the simple things—a beautiful garden, bumping into your friends, feeling part of a community, feeling safe and breathing good air. Safety, nice people, good air. That is true luxury. People are discovering that,” Locsin further added.
Healthy, expansive spaces
Tina Periquet, the Principal Architect of Periquet Galicia Inc., takes cue from these masterplanners with her own design dovetailing with the overall vision and concept.
According to Periquet, her goal was to capture the sense of community that’s healthy and open.
“It’s really very much in keeping with the overall idea of being in a healthful place where you can just relax and not feel confined the way you normally would in a condo tower. There is a sense of expansiveness, openness, actual ventilation, and daylight,” she explained.
Future residents will indeed find healthy, spacious residences awaiting them at Two Botanika. On offer here are more unit categories ranging from one-bedroom units with a generous size of 72 sqm to 84 sqm, to four-bedroom bi-level units of 322 sqm, which come with grand ceilings and spacious balconies that promote a more refreshing ambiance.
Bringing the outdoors in are deeper lanais, which will be included in all units of Two Botanika.
Further enhancing the elegance and sustainability of these living spaces are the common areas and choice amenities, purposefully designed for the resident’s well-being.
Isabelle Miaja of Miaja Design Group sought to further accentuate and complement the vision for Two Botanika with a beautiful selection of art and furniture pieces for the amenities.
You can find your own breathing space in any of these amenities as Two Botanika gives you well-manicured gardens, a lawn, veranda, among others. The new fully-fitted gym will enable you to stick to your fitness regimen. The Sky Lounge, which provides spectacular views of Filinvest City, offers more luxurious indulgences for the residents.
That beautiful vista of Filinvest City also means you’re in a prime, exclusive address that translates to even better conveniences for the residents.
Two Botanika is nestled beside the Palms Country Club, the most exclusive area of Filinvest City, Alabang’s garden central business district—reportedly the first and only township in the country with multiple green certifications including LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) Gold in Neighborhood Development from the US Green Building Council and 3-star BERDE certification from the Philippine Green Building Council.
Residing at Two Botanika thus means unparalleled access to a host of commercial centers, retail and leisure hubs, offices, medical facilities, and even prestigious educational institutions.
Indeed, Filigree is set to deliver another remarkable masterpiece with Two Botanika, another distinct crafted community that elevates notions of space, luxury and wellness.
