Interior Designer JC Arcega is known for his eclecticism and versatility in design, bringing a unique approach to every project he takes on, whether it be contemporary or traditional.
As one third of the Empire Designs trio, JC believes in designing a space that is simple and effective, yet also luxurious—an idea that is not based on cost, but on how a client feels in a space. With this in mind, JC goes into a project with a collaborative approach. He encourages his clients to actively participate and partner with him in the design process. As a result, projects are well-executed and are built with the clients’ needs and wants in mind.
This commitment to his profession is reinforced by a constant pursuit of excellence. JC topped the National Interior Design board exams and graduated with flying colors from the Philippine School of Interior Design in 2008. And as a consistent Dean’s Lister in BSBA Business Management at De La Salle University-College of St. Benilde, the course proved to be invaluable in pursuing his design profession.
Given the chance, JC’s next passion project is to restore and redesign old Catholic churches in the Philippines, as well as train peoples’ eyes on the talent and craftsmanship of the Bulakenyos.
