MANILA, Philippines - Condominium living these days is no longer limited to the four walls of one’s unit. A community development is masterplanned well if the experience extends outdoors and promotes a healthy and holistic lifestyle to its residents.
This was the top priority of Century Properties Group Inc. in designing the masterplan of the Residences at Commonwealth by Century, its 2.4-hectare, eight-tower residential community rising in Quezon City.
“It’s no secret that health starts at home,” said Marco R. Antonio, Century Properties co-chief operating officer and Commonwealth project head. “That is why our responsibility goes beyond building four walls of living space, and extends to creating venues that harness the optimum potential of its dwellers – from babies to toddlers, children in their pre-teens, teenagers to adults.
Commonwealth by Century features vast open spaces and innovative amenities that are quickly changing expectations of what to look for when it comes to a truly healthy and enjoyable lifestyle right in the comfort of home.
Integrated within the community’s masterplan are spaces that promote personal skills development, social interaction, fitness and relaxation. The core themes of these areas are: the Nurturing, the Playful, the Artistic, the Leisurely, the Vocational and the Energetic.
As toddlers are beginning to develop their social skills and actively interact with others around them, parents would be happy that Commonwealth by Century has a The Kindergarten, a room filled with educational instruments and gadgets for learning and a venue that provides the opportunity to interact with other kids in the community.
At Commonwealth by Century, kids are encouraged to spend more play time outdoors, especially at the beautiful Orchard – a modern tree house complex that takes the shape of three apple structures filled with a fun web of ropes for climbing, a mini-observatory for stargazing and a spiral ladder with fun facts.
Moms and dads are just as important as the kids of course, and places of leisure provide the ideal retreat where they can relax, reinvigorate and reenergize their way back to health. Replete with Zen areas and nature parks, Commonwealth by Century provides moms with a place where they can finally catch up on their favorite read. Dads can enjoy a soothing walk around the gardens. To find that much needed balance and self-meditation, a contemplation garden also serves as a spacious yoga and Pilates deck.
Teens and adults can burn the extra energy or stay in shape through active recreational spaces for the energetic. Play weekend badminton with buddies at not one but two sunken badminton courts, or engage in a healthy game of one-on-one and three-point shootouts at the indoor and outdoor basketball courts.
