Did you know that architectural design has a direct impact on overall health and well-being? Research has shown that accessibility and utilization of green spaces improves physical health, and a large-scale international study found that nurturing social relationships makes a positive impact on overall wellness.
As a consequence of the global pandemic, according to the Global Buyer Survey conducted by Santos Knight Frank in 2021, more homeowners have put a premium on health and wellness by choosing to live in close proximity to green spaces, and have access to good air quality and good views.
Giving importance to health and wellness, SM Development Corporation (SMDC), the leading and fastest growing real estate developer in the Philippines, has long adapted innovative design philosophies that foster a safe, happy, and positive environment for members of its master-planned communities.
Creating Spaces so You can Breathe Easy
In each development, SMDC carefully considers the ratio of natural to built environments: with about 30-60% devoted to open spaces–whether it be leisure centers, gardens, or amenities. This environment fosters a healthy lifestyle. Due to its consideration of letting more than enough air and sunlight in, it is no wonder that their developments are often described as resort-like–thereby, changing the landscape of condo living in the Philippines.
By taking into consideration the overall health and wellness of its residents, the design of SMDC’s community areas does not adopt a one-size-fits-all approach. Respecting the uniqueness of every individual, the company also takes into consideration residents’ varied interests and personalities. Spaces are allotted for solitary active or passive pursuits, venues for group gatherings, and even sports facilities that run the gamut of more laidback (e.g. yoga and tai chi) to very active (e.g. basketball and swimming) play.
One of SMDC properties that provide more than enough green spaces for its residents is Mint Residences. Located in Makati, Mint Residences is a green urban haven with 64 percent of its amenity deck allotted to green sustainable spaces that allow residents to connect with nature and offer a temporary escape from the hustle and bustle of their surroundings. Vast green spaces are evident in all SMDC properties, including that of Smile Residences in Bacolod, South 2 Residences in Las Piñas, Gem Residences in Pasig, and Gold Residences in Parañaque.
Creating Conditions for Your Peace of Mind
SMDC properties are socially-inclusive. Facilities cater to all ages–from play areas and kiddie pools for the little ones to access ramps and pathways for the elderly and persons with disabilities (PWD). These and many other well-planned features help to create a link between the safe spaces of home and conducive common areas accessible to everyone. In addition, throughout the development, high-tech surveillance equipment and well-trained security staff ensure the security of all who enter the gates. Moreover, SMDC, through Greenmist Property Management Corporation (GPMC), takes away the unwanted stress of residents by ensuring that the property is in optimal condition. These features provide safety and peace of mind to all members of the SMDC community.
