Additionally, as people heed the government’s call to shelter in place, most homes have been transformed into more than just living spaces.  Work-from-home has become a norm and soon, distance learning will further blur the lines between a house and a coworking environment.

This gives rise to vacation residences becoming the preferred primary address where nature and luxury meet.

In this webcast episode, Arch. Royal Pineda of Budji + Royal talks about the growing trend and how they conceptualized AboitizLand’s prime beachside community. 

Highlighting the need to adapt, the Chief Architect and his team knew that Seafront Residences in San Juan, Batangas is not just meant to be a second home. 

“The point is to be able to evolve and create something progressive.”

While the design heavily focused on contemporary elements, he emphasized that modernity is mainly about improving the lives of the homeowners. This vision is perfectly aligned with AboitizLand’s promise of creating better ways to live. 

An upscale community built for resiliency, the flagship development is not only an escape from the city. It is a safe haven where families can fully thrive.

“Things are valued differently now.”

Pineda cites how more people have been reconnecting with nature relating it to how relevant the masterplan of Seafront Residences is.

The firm also believes that Filipinos deserve practical luxury hence, they deliver it through creative solutions. While the aesthetics of Seafront Residences amplify heritage, purposeful details also provide comfort and an upgraded lifestyle. 


Here are some concrete examples that take AboitizLand’s premier beach community up a notch.

Outdoor Patio

At Seafront Residences, permeability is evident in the masterplan. Houses are positioned to allow proper airflow while giving homeowners a spanning view of the entire property. 

When it comes to the individual units, outdoor patios add a personal breathing space. It also helps manage social distancing by providing several entry points to the home. 

With well-thought-out configuration, it allows cross-ventilation from the front all the way to the back of the house. 



The presence of several social spaces in the house cater to the modern lifestyle of the Filipinos. 

Though primarily designed for the residents to enjoy panoramic scenes, the azotea is another feature that ensures ventilation by releasing hot air passing through the homes. Beyond its architectural function, it also serves as an evacuation point in cases of high water levels. 


Generous Greens

With nature as its backdrop, Seafront Residences heightens the benefits of living away from the metropolitan hustle. 

Lush landscaping further creates a relaxing ambience while providing a cool and calm atmosphere around the property. Moreover, tropical plants add beauty and a touch of privacy while transforming spaces into places of tranquility. 


Beachfront Clubhouse

An ultimate advantage of living in an exclusive beachside community is the access to a range of amenities. 

The Beach Clubhouse was designed to meet the leisure requirements of the residents. What makes it unique is how it could also serve as a safe sanctuary to guests and homeowners with its wide-open spaces.

More than just an architectural spectacle, the View Tower also serves as a beacon of direction where the Beachfront Clubhouse is. 

Seafront Residences has been curated to have a responsive set-up and Budji + Royal is confident that it is apt for the new normal.

Though construction is ongoing, Seafront Residences has already proven how it can be a safe shelter amidst inevitable calamities such as typhoons, earthquakes, and even a volcanic eruption, with vecinos opting to quickly move into their beach sanctuary. With a dedicated property management team, the safety and security of the community are ensured.

Pioneering concepts are not new to AboitizLand. Another quality development located in Cebu, Foressa Mountain Town in Balamban similarly puts nature in the spotlight. A residential community that features lush terrain as your playground, it brings adventure and relaxation in one vast master-planned property.

The pandemic may not yet be over but that doesn’t mean life can’t be better. Learn more about life by the sea from Budji + Royal’s very own Arch. Royal Pineda. Watch the full video here
