This talent is evident in the special theme that SoH Architects has developed for the model unit; done in rich hues of cream and chocolate, the space gives out a contemporary yet comfy vibe. Tasteful artworks placed in the walls do not overwhelm the space, as well as the furniture which were just the right size for the unit. Glass and metal fixtures – as in the beautiful chandelier – give just the right touch of modernity. Indeed, any professional would want to have this unit for his very own, as it has the look of a businessman’s hotel but with enhanced warmth and character.

Filinvest’s Studio Zen offers the perfect student’s haven

What makes a perfect student’s haven? Is it the proximity to one’s school, ease of transportation or access to various creature comforts? These are just the icing on the cake, as when it comes to choosing where to stay, the most important thing to consider is the living space itself.

This was kept in mind by top property developer, Filinvest, when developing the units at its Studio Zen Private Dormitel and Residences. Located along Taft Avenue, Studio Zen, which had its groundbreaking recently, has become the second home of students from top schools and universities in the area, such as De La Salle University, St. Scholastica’s College Manila, Arellano School of Law and U.P. Manila.

With design firm SoH, Filinvest created the Studio Zen model unit to give a glimpse of a living and studying environment that is safe and conducive for learning. Knowing how a student’s life can be busy and chaotic, Filinvest and SoH worked together to develop a residence that reflects and caters to students’ lifestyle and design sensibilities. The model unit has a free flowing layout that maximizes the space’s utility and functionality, providing two students rooming together with their very own comfortable space. A cabinet ingeniously opens up into a dining area that’s roomy enough to enable eating while studying. The multi-purpose shelf can serve as a desk or house a TV set for some much needed relaxation time. Bathrooms may be a challenge for other dormitories, but in Studio Zen, the three-way toilet and bath configuration enables roommates to get ready for school simultaneously with minimum fuss.

The model unit at Studio Zen was not only practically designed, but is aesthetically pleasing as well. The pink and mint green color scheme, ideal for young women, gives a refreshing and vibrant air to the space. The compact and functional furniture, on the other hand, helps to keep a sense of order without making the unit look bare. All in all, the model unit enables future residents to visualize the many possibilities that their Studio Zen unit can offer, from the many color palettes they can use to the kind of furnishings they can bring in to make the space truly their own.

While many developers have come up with their own properties targeting the student population, Studio Zen has become a popular choice not only for its spacious units, but for its wide range of amenities that provide comfort and convenience to its residents. The Central Atrium, for example, enables maximum ventilation in the single corridor airways, and lets natural light flow in. A social and recreational area at Studio Zen’s roof deck enables residents to mix and mingle while enjoying amenities such as a theatre room, dance studio, game room, fitness center, and sky lounge at the landscaped Zen garden. WiFi access, a must for students especially when doing research, is also available at the amenity area.

Parents are also assured of their children’s safety with security measures such as the strict screening of visitors from the lobby reception curtailing access to the residential area. The commercial area on the ground floor of Studio Zen also lets residents get basic needs without even leaving the building. Among the shops available are retail boutiques, cafe, laundry / water refilling station, computer / photocopy center, and convenience store.

Transportation to and from school is made convenient by Studio Zen’s strategic location, as different modes of transportation such as buses, shuttles, jeepneys and the Light Rail Transit (LRT) 1 line are available. Prime schools and universities are very accessible, as are major destinations like the Makati CBD and SM Mall of Asia, and private hospitals such as Philippine General Hospital and Manila Doctors Hospital.

Studio Zen is another project of trusted developer Filinvest Land. Inc. With a rich history spanning almost 50 years, Filinvest has built more than 135,000 homes on over 2,350 hectares of land to fulfill the dreams of Filipino families across the nation. A trusted name in providing well-crafted homes, inspiring townships and vibrant cities, Filinvest takes Filipinos through life’s important milestones – helping them achieve their ultimate dream of a place they can truly call home.
