International Women’s Month in March is dedicated to celebrating women across the globe and raising the issues that they face in society. For taking on more roles than they get credit for, women are worth celebrating every day.
From occupying high seats in government, taking part in major sporting events, and running full-fledged companies, women have been leading the world to greater heights in various fields.
In architecture and design alone, two female voices have set themselves apart from the rest. Daphne Guinness and Elizabeth de Portzamparc are world-renowned international designers who have accomplished major feats with their phenomenal designs.
These women are among the notable designers brought together by Revolution Precrafted, to create an exclusive series of livable spaces in Batulao Artscapes.
Located in Nasugbu, Batangas, Batulao Artscapes through Revolution Precrafted collaborates with both local and international designers known as “Revolutionaries” to create limited edition homes in a community that celebrates art and adventure. These female Revolutionaries give us a glimpse of how artful living looks like.
Dubbed as “the most stylish woman alive,” fashion maven and beverage heiress Daphne Guinness dabbles in various artistic pursuits such as fashion, music, film and her most recent venture, architectural design.
Her namesake, Daphne Skin Home, is a “fashion house” that evokes a sense of drama and sophistication and serves as a visual testament to the British maverick’s modern yet classic taste. Pictured above, this ‘sculpture’ transforms into a house through a series of collapsible metal panels.
When closed, the house assumes the form of a metal box, and once opened, reveal doors and windows that resemble a traditional home. The metal panels’ perforations allow natural light to seep into the interiors even when the structure is closed. While at night, the light from inside the home spills out through the perforated panels, casting a beautiful glow.
French-Brazilian architect Elizabeth de Portzamparc is a coveted name in architecture and design, known for placing nature, man, and the respect of local cultures at the focal point of her works. This practice, along with a flexible and sustainable approach to architecture, have earned her multiple international awards and accolades.
The Butterfly Home reflects all the fundamental elements of her work, such as flexibility, modularity, lightness and movement. This design also makes it a multi-faceted space that could be transformed into a single-family home, resort villa, or even an amenity space.
Daphne Guinness and Elizabeth de Portzamparc are only two of the countless women who are at the forefront of future-ready design. Their clear aesthetic vision and modern sensibilities make them revolutionaries in their own right.
