Something old,  something new,  when fused together,  did you know that you can get something special and good?  These and more are what you will experience at the  Philippine School of Interior Design (PSID) Advance Class of 2018's exhibit - “JUXTAPOSE: Espasyo at Panahon”, on Oct. 1 – 31, 2018 at the 11th Floor, Santolan Town Plaza in San Juan City.

With their talent and creativity,  the PSID graduation exhibit explores adaptive reuse as a solution to design problems by repurposing old buildings or sites for a function other than what it was originally built for.

This is co-presented by Santolan Town Plaza and in partnership with the National Commission for Culture and the Arts (NCCA).  The exhibit showcases 17 booths that challenge proponents of cultural heritage conservation, developers, and the audience to find creative solutions in the restoration and rehabilitation of historic structures. It also seeks to impart a sense of heritage to Filipinos with a further understanding and appreciation of our cultural and historical identity.

The exhibit is divided into three galleries: Tahanan, Pangkalakal, and Pang-industriya, where forgotten historical structures are given relevance once again and given design concepts such as bars, cafes, specialty stores, wellness centers, among others.

The Tahanan gallery focuses on residential buildings that were restored into something new, while keeping the old elements:
