Carlo Calma Design Batangas House

The architectural talents of Carlo Calma have been featured recently in leading online publications, Philippine Tatler and Inquirer, for a house whose vision literally reaches new horizons.

Hewn into the cliff-top above the sea in an idyllic Batangas locale, this home finished largely in imported Italian marble embraces open space, natural light and air-flow, and sits in harmony with the surrounding geography. Beyond its feature infinity pool, distant islands and the South China Sea stretch to the horizon.

The construction of Calma’s innovative and modern design appears deceptively simple, pleasing the eye and relaxing the body; sculptures and features add to that aesthetic.

Architecture should always be about the context of the site in collaboration with the client and create what you believe is the best experience.

Privacy was paramount for the client, which is why the design of the exterior seems closed-off. As one enters the house, the delightful sight of the open sea greets and draws you to its calm view and beauty.

With high ceilings, wide windows and spacious areas for work and play, Carlo has combined function and art to yet again, showcase his minimalist and edgy innovations he is known for.

This property is a fitting celebration of the artistic and trendsetting flair of Calma design.
