ARCHITECT Philip H. Recto created a masterpiece when he designed the various buildings of the MMLDC around a former mango orchard. Upon entering the Academic Hall, the main building, an elegant steel sculpture by Impy Pilapil welcomes guests. The three-level building contains 14 function rooms with the latest audiovisual equipment. The Residence Hall is the biggest building nestled at the highest point on the site. It can accommodate up to 239 participants at a time in its 67 guestrooms.
To serve the other needs of the guests, there is a chapel, pool, lounge, clinic, safety deposit boxes, game room, gym, and a basketball/ volleyball court. Golfing enthusiasts may try out the pitch and putt amenities, while a paintball area is open for adventure seekers. An open-air venue/restaurant, Areva Pavilion, offers a commanding view of Antipolo. It overlooks the swimming pool that entices anyone to take a dip. The outdoor venue offers an integrated course that dares guests with physical and mental challenges. (Story/photo by Peng Young)
