REVOLUTIONS call for a radical transformation in the existing order. In the local property sector, drastic change is being advocated by Revolution Precrafted, harnessing the power of technology and using precrafted technology.
“With our vision of becoming the world’s largest supplier of homes, Revolution Precrafted is using technology to reimagine how a home is built. We don’t own land, we sell globally, and our homes are built and sold within months instead of years. But more than being a disruptor in the real-estate industry, Revolution Precrafted is all about design democratization,” said Jose Roberto Antonio, founder and CEO of Revolution Precrafted, in a recent forum held in Bonifacio Global City
Established in December 2015, Antonio is proud of Revolution Precrafted because it is a start-up unicorn valued at over $1 billion making it the most valuable startup in the Philippines and one of the fastest-growing companies throughout South East Asia.
Antonio walks the talks so to speak, as the company makes these designs available to everyone through Revolution Basics. In its offering, a designer-branded home will cost P1 million.
All of these products are created by over 60 of the world’s preeminent architects, artists and designers through exclusive partnerships with Revolution. The prefab concept simplifies the process and addresses pain points in traditional real-estate development by offering speed, quality, cost efficiency and accessibility, thereby drastically reducing production time
Being an innovative company, Antonio said Revolution Precrafted combines state-of-the-art technology, celebrity design philosophies and the highest quality controls at competitive prices.
“Our lives are changing. And so are businesses. Some of the biggest companies in the world today have expanded worldwide through technology. They offer a solution to a universal need—and they do it fast, affordable and user-friendly,” Antonio pointed out.
Meanwhile, Revolution Precrafted was recently tasked by the Century Properties Group (CPG) to design an active retirement village in its 142-hectare Batulao Artscape project near the foothills of scenic Mount Batulao in Nasugbu, Batangas. The world-class village will have exclusive vacation amenities, a man-made beach with clubhouse and a lake with a charming wedding chapel. Art cum adventure, or “artventure” facilities include a sports park, flavor park and art park with museums designed by Pritzker Prize-winning architects.
The project is CPG’s latest foray into the leisure and tourism segment. Of this property, Batulao Artscapes will cover the first phase of the mixed tourism development.
“This is the first project of Revolution Precrafted under the business to consumer model. It will be our litmus test,” Antonio said.
Revolution Precrafted also believes in giving back through the Revolution Foundation’s Buy a Home-Give a Home campaign.
Under the scheme, all proceeds of the sales from Revolution Precrafted will go towards the Revolution Foundation, who will be building homes for disaster-stricken areas, for quicker turnover and to provide shelter. Antonio also revealed that Revolution Precrafted is handling 17 development projects across the region.
These homes are by Revolution Precrafted, a multibranded housing company with a collection of limited-edition, precrafted properties of stunning homes, designer museums, unique pop-up concepts and cutting-edge hotels.
Three Filipino names led the roster for Batulao Artscapes’s first three villages. Architect Ed Calma’s Polygonal Successions will make up the Cluster Village. Designer Kenneth Cobonpue’s Hedera Homes will be the main feature of the Commune Village. Budji+Royal Architecture+Design of Budji Layug and Royal Pineda will fill the Collection Village with their Tranche and Facet Homes.
The fourth section, called the Curated Village 1, will feature 12 one-of-a-kind homes by international architects and designers, including David Salle + AA Studio for the “Billboard Home,” Marcel Wanders for “Eden,” Marmol Radziner & Kravitz Design for the “Instrumental Home,” Philip Johnson Alan Ritchie Architects for the “Modular Glass House,” Elizabeth de Portzamparc for the “Butterfly Home,” AFGH for Wallpaper for the “We Home,” Studio Libeskind Design for “Adaptation II” and Daphne Guinness for the “Daphne Skin Home.”
Home prices range from P4 million for a 56-square-meter unit at the Cluster Village to the larger homes at the Curated Village, which start at P17.4 million and come with their own private pool and guest home.
The limited-edition homes will be built using a combination of conventional construction methods and prefabrication, and will offer different sizes and specifications to meet individual tastes and preferences.
It will help active retirees secure a Special Resident Retiree’s Visa for foreign nationals, and former Filipino citizens will also be offered, while the public amenities of the development aim to attract art and design enthusiasts and weekend adventure seekers and families.
