Julius Babao and Christine Bersola have toiled for years as journalists and entrepreneurs.
KAMI learned that one of the fruits of their labor is their four-storey house that they refer to as Casa Uccello, or “Bird House.”
According to PEP.ph, the family expanded their old home to make way for Julius’ growing art collection.
"Nandun din yung bahay namin nung bagong kasal kami. Binibili lang yung lupa sa tabi, dalawa," Christine told PEP.ph.
The news anchor owns 360 art pieces and paintings that he has collected for over two decades now. This means that his house also functions as an art museum.
Buensalido Architects’ Jason Buensalido was hired by the couple to design their house.
Christine also gave an explanation on the name of their house:
"Uccello means bird, kasi bird signifies the Holy Spirit, di ba? The Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. So, yung bird, siya yun Holy Spirit guiding us, kaming family.
"At the same time, yung design ng bahay, is like a bird origami…cYou take flight, di ba, you take on many adventures, so that you don't just stay in one place.
"You keep on flying, and, at the same time, you are guided by the Holy Spirit,” she explained.
Julius and Christine tied the knot in 2003.
They have two kids – Antonia and Antonio. They were named after Julius’ patron saint, St. Anthony of Padua.
