This author had a recent road trip to Lipa city and at the neart of it all was an interesting discovery--a more than a century-old ancestral home of the Luz- Katigbak family called Casa Segunda.  Built in 1880, the sight was a glimpse of what it was like to live back then and the past was simple unfolding in front of your eyes.  Casa de Segunda relfects a certain sense of richness and history that echoes through its architecture, interiors and even in interesting design elements in almost every space and corner.  In 1996, it was proclaimed a heritage house by the National Historical Institute of the Republic of the Philippines crossing over seasons of change.  Loving how these preserved landmarks remind us of our culture and how it glorifies the uniqueness of Filipino heritage.

The art of preservation.

The grand view.


Going up.  Loving the wooden staircase.

The best technology back then was the art of conversation.

In the light of beauty.

Mirror, mirror.

Master's bedroom.

Designing corners.

Lighting and Design.


Design at your step.
