Studio zen Filinvest designs ideal student’s haven - Proximity to one’s school, transportation, and access to comfort options area unit just some of the factors that gift a perfect “student’s haven.” but a crucial issue should also be considered – the living space itself.
This was the inspiration that guided top property developer, Filinvest, when developing the units at its Studio Zen non-public Dormitel and Residences. located on Taft Avenue, Studio Zen, which had its groundbreaking recently, can become the second home of students from prime faculties and universities within 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. 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 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 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 designed to be 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 space 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 for its wide range of amenities that provide comfort and convenience. The Central Atrium, for example, will give maximum ventilation in the single corridor airways, and lets natural light flow in. A social and recreational area at the roof deck will allow 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, will be 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 to control access to the residential area. The commercial area on the ground floor also lets residents get basic needs without 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 the strategic location, as different modes of transportation such as buses, shuttles, jeepneys and the LRT 1 line are available. Prime schools and universities are accessible, as are major destinations like the Makati CBD and SM Mall of Asia, and private hospitals.
Studio Zen is another project of 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.
