Pioneering new experiences

It mirrors Malate’s vibrancy and cultural richness. Each space is lively and colorful and meant to celebrate local elements and visuals in its walls.

Named as the Best Co-living Space and Best Alternative Accommodation, lyf Malate Manila showcases a unique co-living experience aimed at new-generation social travelers.  The property is managed by international lodging operator, The Ascott Limited.

As the first lyf property in the Philippines, it allows digital nomads, technopreneurs, creatives and self-starters to “live your freedom” in a dynamic environment for living, work, and play. With curated experiences and social programs, lyfis also designed for residents to plug into the local community and form connections with one another through its shared spaces.

The murals on lyf’s walls were inspired by the rich character and culture of its location, Manila City. These murals that highlight everyday sights were done in collaboration with the local community as these were designed by student artists from the De La Salle-College of Saint Benilde.

It has Connect Pods for those wanting private work time, the Wash and Hang area where travelers can socialize in a ball pit while waiting for their laundry, the Burn Gym for fitness buffs, a coffee kiosk for those who need their daily caffeine fix, and the Collab & Meet areas for group discussions or social gatherings.

Integrating modern lifestyles

Armed with an innovative mindset, TLDC designed 3Torre Lorenzo to cater to the changing needs and lifestyle of its residents. It offers workspaces to do individual work or for when they want to work together.

Attuned to the new lifestyle of residents, 3Torre Lorenzo, on the other hand, won Best Integrated Work From Home Development for its work from home features that cater to both university students in the Taft area, and professionals who go to work in various business centers in Manila, Pasay, and Makati. It has a resident’s lounge and five meeting rooms that support both individual productivity and co-working.

Access to generous spaces for health and relaxation are part of 3Torre Lorenzo’s design. Apart from the 2-level fitness center with a fully-equipped gym and dance studio, there’s also a 25-meter lap pool where residents can unwind after a busy day.
