Magnolia Place Clubhouse defines well-rounded community for young families

February 4, 2010

A common place to gather the family within the heart of this emerging community in Quezon City will fulfill its function once the gates are opened and units are turned over this February at Magnolia Place along Tandang Sora Avenue.

Developer DMCI Homes considers the Clubhouse as the focal point of every development, as a functional and recreational structure that provides the means for its market of young families to achieve a wholesome lifestyle. As with every community, Magnolia Place will have its own Clubhouse conveniently located near the center of this 3.29-hectare property as a place for residents to relax and lounge around, enjoy some bonding time and recreation, along with providing other services such as a fitness gym, convenience store, and multi-purpose function hall.

A tropical resort theme was selected as an attractive design concept for the community as this will satisfy the taste of the prospective residents namely start-up families, young professionals, and upgraders. This theme is presented all around the development, but most strikingly, at the Clubhouse, as the residents' common convergence point.
Arch. Rina Soriano, DMCI Homes' Architectural Design Manager, said that every clubhouse of a DMCI Homes community is incorporated with design solutions that are site-specific. In the case of Magnolia Place, they maximized the space allotted for the clubhouse to come up with an expansive total floor area of more than 1,000 square meters.

"The Clubhouse has three levels, including a lower ground floor. Its façade and earth tone colors mirror the style of the entrance gate as well as the condo buildings to achieve uniformity throughout the development. For this we relied on Asian architecture that is free-flowing, infused with big windows and openings but with our own local touches such as louvers on the roof, cozy furniture and lush landscaping that reminds you of the tropics," she said.

The ground level of the Clubhouse presents a vast open area that allows the entry of natural light and ventilation - a common attribute among DMCI Homes clubhouses. Comfortable seating areas extend the relaxed and free-flowing feel of the space. It also has an air conditioned meeting room that can be used for intimate meetings and small functions such as a quiet dinner that can seat up to 12 people. There is also a storage room at the back which can be converted into a pantry.

On the lower ground level, more amenities can be found for the residents' use. A game room offers recreation options, while an entertainment room can be reserved for casual gatherings or private movie viewings. The Property Management Office is located there to provide assistance to residents, while a convenience store, water refilling station and laundry pick-up station serve as accessible sources for various household needs. Comfort rooms are also available for residents and their guests using the clubhouse.

An air conditioned multi-purpose function hall is found on the second floor, which can be rented by residents for their various social and corporate functions. It has a bar and kitchenette that can be used for banquet facilities. On the same level is the fitness gym which comes with its own male and female locker rooms with toilet and shower rooms. A deck above the canopy can also serve as a viewing area to lounge around and enjoy the scenes around the property.

Less than a year since the project was launched in 2009, the Clubhouse was completed ahead of schedule in anticipation of the turnover for Magnolia Place's first two buildings in February: Liana and Verawood. This community of 12 medium-rise condominiums is strategically located along Tandang Sora Avenue near Quirino Highway and Mindanao Avenue - accessible to important institutions of business, recreation, religion and education.

According to Adam Trinidad, DMCI Homes' Project Director, finding the right balance between design and function is the challenge for DMCI Homes when it creates plans for every development. He added: "We are always looking for ways to satisfy our target market based on their needs and wants, lifestyle and personality. Project specifications are devised with the intent of providing these families a safe and comfortable place they can call home. With the clubhouse, we are providing them with an extension of their home, where they can strengthen family rapport and enjoy opportunities to have a well-rounded community."
