The Art Deco Mansion in Bacolod City
If there’s something that needs to be added to your bucket list when visiting Bacolod City, it is the visit to the Art Deco District Located along Burgos Street.
The area is known amongst many as the Millionaires Row in Bacolod because it is where the mansions of affluent families in the 1030s are standing and still standing in good conditions.

One of the mansions and perhaps the most popular is the Daku Balay (Big House), the first Art Deco Structure in Negros Occidental. The mansion is the ancestral house of Don Generoso Villanueva, a prominent sugar planter.
The Villanueva couple Generoso and his wife Paz) took three years to build the mansion (1933-1939)

3. The mansion has multi-colored marbling, inspired by the Italian scagliola marble style.
4. Paintings of native animals and landscapes and deco-motifs are handpainted in various parts of the mansions like the elevator doors and the glass dividers between bedrooms.

As of this writing, the mansion is still privately owned, but you can also visit to see the place with an appointment.
Across the mansion, Don Generoso Villanueva built a bit smaller mansion for her sister with the same designs. The families live in the house, and they don’t open their place to the public.

Belle Arte Condo
In the addition to the first two art deco structures in Bacolod, now comes the third. Since these buildings are proximate with each other, it is but just proper to label the area as the art deco district of the city.
Inspired by the Daku Balay, which is known to be the most significant remaining art deco architectural structure in the Philippines, comes to the Belle Arte Condo developed by Don Generoso Villanueva’s heirs
The building resembles the original Daku Balay in its architectural design. One added bonus is its proximity to the old house.
The condominium has studio, one-bedroom, two-bedroom, and three-bedroom units all ready for occupancy. It has a 24-hour security service, concierge service, fiber optic wifi, a modern fitness center, and spacious hallways. Since it is located at the heart of the city, it is just a short walk from churches, malls, banks, schools, and hospitals.
