Martin Mendoza, Arch. Larry Espino, Arch. Bayani Dela Passion, Arch. Michael Germino, and Arch. Mark Arocena.

The APT Studios, which houses the production of one of the country’s biggest daily noontime shows, was designed to reflect its output: a respite from life’s daily challenges. By incorporating elements such as theater curtains and drapes into various aspects of the design, the structure better displays the studio’s commitment to bringing uplifting stories to audience’s screens.
