“It is clear that now so many of us must revisit the concept of ‘dual living’,
viewing it as more of a philosophy within the confines of our own four walls.”

Now more than ever our home is an integral part of our lifestyles, being the axis around which not just routine, but also work, school and leisure revolve.  It has the potential to be a true reflection of our activities, where spaces are not just created beautifully but with purpose and intent.

For Editor-in-Chief Stephanie Zubiri’s maiden issue of Tatler Homes Philippines — themed around the concept of “Dual Living” — I was commissioned to photograph the cover feature about Filipina architect Sarah Canlas and how she divides her life between her chic Ortigas urban condominium and her gorgeous, self-designed Antipolo retreat.

I documented Sarah’s two stylish properties this past February, many weeks before cities locked-down around the world, and although Tatler’s “dual living” theme was originally conceptualized to celebrate individuals’ choices to have compact apartments in the city built for focus and habit juxtaposed with larger weekend homes designed for rest and pleasure, it is clear that now so many of us must revisit the notion of “dual living”, viewing it as more of a philosophy we can adopt within the confines of our own four walls.
