Pabs Suarez designed and built the perfect house for us 3 years ago. It is a functional and intimate home that supports our lifestyle. He considered conditions of our area and wind patterns, he placed windows, doors and lighting to save energy. He also helped us source sustainable materials. We love our home and can’t imagine being in quarantine anywhere else. Thank you Pabs!
Proverbs 24:3-4 – By wisdom a house is built, and by understanding it is established; by knowledge the rooms are filled with all precious and pleasant riches.
Truly, the house designed by Architect Pabs Suarez and built by his partner contractor Wyndon Trinidad is perfect for our family. It has great space placement with intentional consideration for what nature has to offer.
My favorite place on planet earth is my bedroom – it gives me utmost privacy, peaceful sleep, and an awesome view of the sunset and moonset. It has ample room for a king size bed, a rocking chair, library and reading nook, a space for greenery, and enough closets to keep things in order.
My second favorite is the porch where I take my breakfast fronting an idyllic garden, or read a book, or just sit and watch the rainfall. It can double as entertainment area, just separated from the dining room by a sliding door.
Between my bedroom, porch and garden, I’m in “heaven on earth”. But the other spaces like living room, dining, big kitchen and other bedrooms equally give me joy … while the maids rooms, work areas, and storage help us keep the house spic and span.
My house is sooo comfortable to live in, with window placement optimized for natural lighting and good airflow so we seldom use air-conditioners.
Built last 2006/2007, my house is still in good shape, no major problems given proper maintenance. It has survived many strong typhoons and one frightful volcano eruption.
My sincere thanks to Architect Pabs and Contractor Wyndon for building us this house which has been the venue for many of our family’s precious moments.
The Green Design of Architect Pabs Suarez is very much a daily blessing. During the summer,
it allows for cool ventilation not normally found in most homes these days.
Our airwell gives us a morning breeze while dining. During the cooler days, it is like being in
Baguio while staying in Metro Manila.
Positioning of rooms, relative to solar and wind orientation provides optimized harvesting of natural lighting and airflow.
The design is especially helpful during brownouts when we need to rely on nature for these things.
With Architect Suarez, you can enjoy nature in a modern design.
In 2003, the youthful Arch’t Pabs of the Single Young Adults of Santuario de San Antonio Parish
was tasked to design the plans for the church building of St John Mary Vianney Parish in Cembo, Makati.
It was a tremendous challenge because the lot for the parish church construction was small in size and irregular in shape.
Arch. Pabs out of his dedication and initiative researched about the life and the church built by this
17th century Patron of Priests and allowed himself to be inspired by the simplicity and beauty of the structure
built by the saintly priest of Ars in France. Arch. Pabs was able to blend the surrounding area of BGC with
the temperament of the growing community of the new parish in Makati The result was a marvelous work of art
and love, one that inspired many of us to see the edifice as Gods love for his people. The former mayor once
told me that it was one of the most beautiful churches built in Metro Manila.
Many of our guests look at the angles and how light comes in and say it is architecturally attractive.
We are very happy with the sustainable design solutions by Ar. Pabs
especially with the way he has helped improve natural ventilation.
The Energy efficient elements and water-saving features he introduced
into the renovation design has truly helped reduce utility costs.
With a simple and streamlined design, he was able to create a warm
and welcoming atmosphere into our newly renovated home.
I love working with Pabs Suarez! He is a good listener,
thorough, detailed, organized, and flexible. Most of all, Pabs knows how
to design a green environment that is good for our planet.
I have worked with him in our home and recommended him at work with success.
He keeps us on track, within budget, and on schedule.
I would work with him again and again !
Pabs Suarez is an empathic designer: he never imposes;
he suggests only after listening. The results we got were
just right: he combined the mix of colors, the right fixtures,
and good layouts. We wanted subtlety, and he gave us the
proper understatement. For another customer he might be
more flashy, or more elegant, or more this or less that.
But in all cases he will use the same process: listen, and
then do the right thing. This translates to a happy,
