Anthill Fabric Gallery
A Gallery, Headquarters and Production House
Alternative Nest Trading for Indigenous or Ingenious Little Livelihood seekers, also known as ANTHILL, Cebu’s pride and globally renowned social enterprise, commissioned the atelier to transform their hill into a proper showroom/ gallery, fix and tidy up their production house and organize a proper flow, add a mezzanine floor as a design office and swatch library, remodel their sampling areas and admin offices, and enhance their retail spaces to better showcase their weaves, apparel and non-apparel products. The added challenge, was to make use of existing shelving and furniture for the project to reduce waste and save on cost. The result was a versatile white space that’s more of an art gallery than a selling area, with upcycled ply-wood and palette wood surfaces adding warmth to the space, giving Anthill’s beautiful local weaves the rightful forefront.
