This 52-storey apartment tower in the Philippines will be the first residential building in the world to bear the brand and design of Missoni Home – and it shows in the striped fabrics, the colour pops and accents and the fact that it’s just oh-so swish!

Its communal area, known as the Canopy, will house the pool, lounge, DJ booth and barbecue – and the apartments, of which there will be 645, will rent for roughly $315 per square foot. One-bedroom apartments start at $82,000 – and, lest you get confused, the Missoni design features are only in communal areas. If you want them in your apartment that’ll cost you extra. How about it? Fancy some thrilla in Manila?
