Lanai

YES! (Philippines) - - Celebrity Home -

Half of the fourth floor opens to a rooftop pa­tio, which is eas­ily the most pleas­ant area in the house. The four-seater din­ing table is ideal for al­fresco break­fasts or late af­ter­noon me­rienda. The plush sec­tional sofa at the far­ther end of the lanai can eas­ily seat the en­tire fam­ily.

This is the fa­cade of the four-story town­house, which stands along a quiet street near New Manila and Cubao, Que­zon City.

Ac­cord­ing to Mommy Su­san, her hus­band Alvin once con­sid­ered buy­ing a more spa­cious home in far­away Parañaque. But she pointed out that the town­house is “malapit sa la­hat,” right smack in the mid­dle of Que­zon City. So in­stead of buy­ing a new house, the Tengs ren­o­vated their town­house in­stead.

The at­tic (left) is ac­ces­si­ble through a lad­der that drops down from the ceil­ing of the laun­dry room. On the other side of the rooftop, an­other space-sav­ing de­vice has been in­stalled: a wall­mounted laun­dry rack (right).

The bas­ket­ball court right out­side the front gate has been with the Teng fam­ily since the grow­ing-up years of Jeric and Jeron.
