by - October 01, 2018

The future of Interior Design in the country is in good hands if the graduation exhibit of the Philippine School of Interior Design (PSID) Advance Class of 2018 is to be the basis. With distinctive design concepts built on the foundation of the country’s famous old and historic structures and how they are place alongside is the main theme of the exhibit. Dubbed as JUXTAPOSE: Espasyo at Panahon, the not-to-be-missed month-long exhibit starts on October 1 and ends on October 31, 2018 at the Santolan Town Plaza in San Juan City.

Repurposing old buildings from what it was originally built for has never been more inspiring as the PSID Advance Class of 2018 explore adaptive reuse as a solution to design problems, breathing new life to it and at the same time conserving its historic value.

In partnership with the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA) and co-presented by Santolan Town Plaza, the highly anticipated exhibit will showcase 17 booths that will challenge the audience, proponents of cultural heritage conservation and developers to find creative solutions in the restoration and rehabilitation of historic structures.

The exhibit will take the audience into three well thought of galleries: Tahanan, Pangkalakal, and Pang-industriya.

The Tahanan gallery focuses on the residential buildings like the iconic Bahay na Bato, and feature booths such as “The Bar Beneath…in San Juan“, “The Vigan Atelier”, “Small Space, Big Living”, “Modern Filipino Haven”, ”Bridal Boudoir”, and the “Marahuyo Spa and Tea House”.
