A MODERN SANCTUARY IN THIS ERA OF COVID
Ever since the COVID-19 pandemic threw the world into a lockdown, limiting movement to the essential and effectively forcing the great many to stay in the confines of their homes, people have taken a good long look at their living spaces.
Beyond the safe haven that our homes have always been to us, we now look to it as a “pod” that takes us on the telecommute to work, the virtual streaming background from where we “zoom-in” with friends and associates across the planet, and then always, the home that we retreat to, back from our quick forays to “the outside world.”
Across the world, people have started to rethink their ideal homes in terms of location -- many choosing to transfer to less densely populated settings, and in terms of design -- many choosing modern artistic themes that define and inspire more than “a new normal” but truly a new way of life.
Practical yet inspired
“People want to seize this moment, amidst pandemic to make very real and visible changes. Many see it as a chance to transform our environment, our lifestyles and our very homes. Practical yet inspired. Those values must define us today,” said Robbie Antonio, Founder and CEO of Revolution PreCrafted.
Revolution Precrafted is a fast-growing player in the real-estate industry, providing contemporary prefabricated homes designed by revolutionary designers like Lev Libeskind, Fernando Romero, Zaha Hadid and even our very own Kenneth Cobunpue. This company prides itself by democratizing access to world-class architecture and making it available to a wider market segment. In fact, a Revolution Precrafted home can be completely delivered in as fast as 60 days.
Art as ones sanctuary
According to Antonio, in the current pandemic, the demand for prefab homes has actually risen. “What we have seen is that people need a secure sanctuary to live and work from home without sacrificing their style. They are also looking for ways to live inspired amidst the reality, by turning to art. So that’s what we do - we make art that is literally your own abode,” said Antonio.
In fact, despite the pandemic, Revolution Precrafted has already 4,600 homes sold from their 5 residential projects in the Philippines alone like the Batulao Artscapes. The company will also start 2021 on a good note as they will have 300 homes to be delivered by the first quarter of the year. “This success inspires us to continue providing ground-breaking innovation in home living and design not just in the Philippines but to the rest of the world,” Antonio says.
Destined to conquer North America
Now the company plans to conquer North America. They are set to start on their real estate projects in key cities and destinations like New York, Arizona and Los Angeles. Antonio says, “Half of our inquiries are from the US so we are excited to finally bring our product and introduce them to the North America market. We believe that our homes designed by critically-acclaimed visionaries and offered at a better price point have a universal appeal.”
He adds that with their entry into the North America real estate market, more people will finally have the chance to live in an art-inspired living space without the high cost and long painful wait of construction.
