Maya on the Block: Art you can live in

Why just look at an artwork when you can actually live in it?

Likha Residences Davao is a piece of art that you can live in Davao City.

This masterpiece was unveiled during the grand launch of Likha Residences Davao by Philippine Investment Management
(PHINMA) in Dusit D2 on June 1, 2024.

It was an exclusive affair that showcased the fusion of Filipino culture, modern lifestyle, and exceptional artistry, setting a new benchmark for an art you can live in.

To set the tone for a night of elegance and cultural appreciation, soprano-songwriter Lara Maigue gave a captivating performance that awed the guests.

The spectacular evening highlighted Likha Residences Davao as not just a development, but a living testament to PHINMA Properties’ promise to develop homes and communities that give residents access to the finest of Filipino living.

Situated amid Davao City’s growing cityscape and coveted address, Likha Residences Davao aims to redefine what it means to be private, yet still connected to modern conveniences and weekend adventures.

Likha Residences Davao is an exclusive community nestling 94 modern townhomes designed by the celebrated Mañosa and Co architectural firm, which features exceptional craftsmanship and innovative design.

Imagine living in an exclusive community of crafted homes and thoughtful spaces tucked away in an intimate neighborhood, but a heartbeat away from Lanang, Davao’s finest treasures, and the serenity of the Island Garden City of Samal (IGaCoS).

Among the key highlights of the evening was a video interview with Architect Gelo Mañosa, who provided an in-depth look into the inspiration and design philosophy behind Likha Residences Davao. Despite being unable to attend in person due to an urgent trip to Spain, Mañosa’s insights were brought to life through a video filmed at his home in Ayala Alabang.

A detailed video presentation gave guests a first-time viewing of the project’s townhomes’ interiors, showcasing features like private elevators and bedroom balconies, designed to offer both luxury and practicality.

Likha Residences Davao epitomizes a truly Filipino home, that’s built on tradition, and not just the traditional – more than wooden furnishings, Capiz windows, or bamboo walls.

The event also featured a panel discussion with prominent figures from the project, including PHINMA Property Holdings Corporation President and CEO Raphael B. Felix, Architect Dave Portoza, Production Head of the Architecture Department at Mañosa and Co., and Principal Geomancer of Guang Ming Feng Shui Melvin Sua who gave audience additional details on the various aspects of the project, from its sustainable design and feng shui elements to its impact on the local community and real estate market.

And one of the highlights of the affair was a runway preview of Emilia Sitjar Jewellery, which highlighted the concept of “Art You Can Wear.”

The bespoke pieces, designed to be heirlooms, paralleled the enduring value of Likha Residences.

The evening was capped with guests socializing, reservation of units, and handing out event souvenirs, leaving guests with a lasting impression of Likha Residences Davao.
