Botanika Nature Residences: The luxury and necessity of space

With the growing demand for green developments that feature wide, open spaces, many real estate development companies are investing their resources and talent to come out with excellent products for today’s discriminating market. Botanika Nature Residences by Filigree is not going to be outdone as it proudly banners its unique selling point: 70% of its total land area is dedicated to open space.

Located in Filinvest City in Alabang, Botanika is a residential enclave consisting of three mid-rise, low-density condominium buildings whose claim to fame is their abundant open spaces, among other things of course. One would never feel confined or crammed in a crowd. There is always a garden to enjoy, and privacy whenever one needs it. 

Filigree partnered with world-class experts like Isabelle Miaja of Miaja Design Group, Andy Locsin of Leandro V Locsin Partners, Tina Periquet of Periquet Galicia Inc., and Architecture International to create Botanika. Needless to say, the amenities are all Class A and the residential unit sizes are generous and luxurious, featuring a big lanai or balcony that’s meant to further blur the boundary between indoor and outdoor spaces.

As a pilot project for vertical residential developments under the Philippine Green Building Council (PHILGBC), Botanika Nature Residences was awarded a 4-star BERDE (Building for Ecologically Responsive Design Excellence Certification) rating. Its high-end village setting and iconic leaf-shaped structure accentuate nature’s grandeur. Botanika is also recognized as the Best Sustainable Residential Development for the Philippines at the Asia Pacific Property Awards (2020-2021). 

And apart from being a green-certified building, Botanika is located in the country’s first-ever business district that has been given the LEED for Neighborhood Development certification under the US Green Building Council — Filinvest City, Alabang. Here, nature is integrated into the master plan and sustainable features are very much present: open parks for the community, inclusive mobility, and access to basic necessities and amenities.
