Building a better Pasa Tiempo


Pasa tiempo is a Spanish expression meaning “passing time”. At Montecito, Pasa Tiempo is the village clubhouse where good times with family and community happen.

Montecito is one of Ayala Land Premier’s exclusive suburban communities in Canlubang, Laguna. The 60-hectare project is designed with less than five residential lots per hectare of land, making it Ayala Land’s lowest density development since Forbes Park.It sits at one of the highest points of the 1,700-hectare urban eco-center Nuvali – a modern metropolis with a vision for a way of life built on the principles of economic, social and environmental sustainability .

From here, the cool, clean air of Laguna is as invigorating as the majesty of Laguna de Bay, Tagaytay Ridge, Mt. Makiling, Mt. Banahaw and the Makati skyline that paints Montecito’s horizon.

The original structure that will become Pasa Tiempo was built in the 1980s by National Architect Leandro V. Locsin for the Yulo family. It was their home, the site of happy occasions for many years. Today, a larger family will be served by Pasa Tiempo – the residents of Montecito who will gather in the village clubhouse for fun and recreation with the whole community.

“We are altering circulation and architectural details to increase the functionality of the space and the sense of pleasure of both the landscape and natural light,” said May Rodriguez, project development manager.

“In the selection of interior furnishings and details, we are working to create spaces that retain the intimate feel of a personal home while functioning as a community clubhouse.”
The bedrooms will be made into a library veranda. Mrs. Yulo’s original showcase kitchen will become a demo kitchen for the community while the basement level shall house facilities for various wellness activities.

The club house’s large social hall will be refurbished and will continue to serve as an elegant space for special events.
Beneath the social hall, a pool deck would be created from which a long swimming pool will stretch into the garden.

The redevelopment of Pasa Tiempo is a reflection of the spirit of Montecito. It came from a legacy of family values and dreams fulfilled, which now will be passed on to the larger Montecito community.
