Architect Reynolds Basilio is one of the young urban professionals of the Kapampangan nation who could be credited for reawakening and redefining the tourism industry in this once United States military installation – the Clark Freeport.
At the heart of the Freeport lies one of this young architect’s latest creations – Casino Widus, which recently opened to tourists and guests visiting Clark.
Architect Bas’s design for Casino Widus is centered on a philosophy based on “providing contextual regional design, through a socially conscious and environmentally sensitive approach to the profession of architecture for people and communities.”
According to Bas, his passion for the arts and fondness of appreciating beautiful things are the qualities that keep him striving for perfection.
A high school graduate of the prestigious Don Bosco Academy in Pampanga, Bas earned a degree in architecture at University of Santo Tomas in 1998 and is a licensed architect and member of the United Architects of the Philippines.
In 2006, Bas and his associates established Club 3 Asia Projects, Inc. – an architectural, interior design and project management company established at City of San Fernando in Pampanga. Bas is the principal architect and one of the founders of Club 3 Asia Projects.
Club 3 Asia Projects, located at Unit 101-C FRDC Bldg., Greenfields in Brgy. Sindalan, boasts of a track record for completing a diverse range of commercial and residential installations using environmentally responsible materials and art finishes.
The company also provides a comprehensive range of quality architectural, planning, interior design and other specialized design services for residential, hotel, and commercial projects.
Bas also boasts of a comprehensive 13-year career in the field of architecture providing him an experience in a wide range of building types and scales.
But according to Bas, the primary focus of his career has been the design and project management of complex civic projects such as multi-use facilities and intuitions hence, Casino Widus – his latest project which has placed Clark in the prime list of top tourist destinations north of Manila and in the Central Luzon region.
Due to strict attention to detail and for maintaining the highest of standards, Bas and Club 3 Asia Projects have earned a reputation for successfully responding to a diverse clientele and community aspirations.
Today, Club 3 Asia Projects has worked with a range of clients on more than 200 successful and challenging projects in Region 3 and the National Capital Region.
“I firmly believe that design, technical and management disciplines are inseparable and that the success of a project is dependent on the way it has been designed, documented, managed and built by individuals who share a cross-disciplinary understanding of the practice,” said Bas.
Throughout his career, Bas has endeavored to understand and continually improve the process by which his projects are executed. He has, likewise, excelled in situations where, because of the uniqueness of one or more of the project parameters, a default approach to project management cannot be applied and a project-specific process must be designed.
While more projects are expected from Bas and his associates in Club 3 Asia Projects, one thing is sure to be the result of their work: Commitment to innovative and economical design solutions that include sound technical expertise in all phases of the communication, regulatory, management, design and construction process.

A new gathering place that will redefine shopping, dining and entertainment experience in Central Luzon is now in Angeles City. Ayala Land’s first venture in the region, MarQuee Mall brings a special fusion of the traditional and the novel, a feature distinctively identified with the Ayala Malls.
A project of North Beacon Commercial Corporation, a 100 % wholly owned subsidiary of Ayala Land, Inc., MarQuee Mall houses the Metro Department Store and Supermarket, four (4) digital cinemas, an activity center, children’s playground, civic park and transport terminal.
Metro Department Store and Supermarket is MarQuee mall’s anchor merchant. Metro started in Cebu in 1982. It offers quality and a variety of merchandise that are highly competitive and reasonable. Metro can also be found in Bonifacio, Global City (Metro Market!Market!), Cebu City, Legaspi, Mandaue, Lucena and at the Metro Ayala in Ayala Center Cebu.
The first of its kind in Central Luzon, MarQuee Mall offers more than 300 popular and specialty stores of local and affordable international brands, fast food outlets, casual-dining restaurants, grills, four (4) digital cinemas, cafés and an amusement center with a mixture of the new trends and concepts such as flagship stores, food showcase from known restaurateurs and highly-pronounced zones for kids, teens, sports, IT, home and wellness.
MarQuee Mall will showcase choice and select shopping by bringing in the best local and foreign brands in shopping and dining to Pampanga interspersed with Central Luzon’s arts, crafts and cuisine. Popular local brands include Bench, Kamiseta, Bayo, Kashieca, Human, Penshoppe, Folded & Hung. Marks & Spencer, Lacoste Clothing and Footwear, Aerosoles, Nine West, Beauty Bar, Charles & Keith represent the international brands. The mall’s junior anchor stores include True Value, Abenson, Toys R’ Us, Saizen, Wilcon Home Essentials . Top notch dining features TGI Fridays, Italianni’s, Red Kimono, Xtremely Expresso, Sumo Sam. Popular Kapampangan specialties like Nathaniel’s, Susie’s Cuisine, Kabigting’s Halo Halo, Aling Lucing and Ikabud add to the unique mix of the mall.
Come September 23, MarQuee Mall will offer a venue for local festivities and occasions. Discerning shoppers will enjoy unique and compelling events featuring both local culture and Ayala Malls signature events.
Marquee’s activity center is a dynamic events venue that will serve as an entertainment
hub where visitors can hang around and enjoy different kinds of activities such as live
performances, shows, exhibits and the like. Also featured in the activity area is a unique water feature and a children’s playground.
And since landscaping is also another signature of the Ayala Malls, MarQuee has a landscaped drop-off and entry area and a half-hectare garden, facing the Angeles City Hall.
The garden serves as the civic park, a street level park that will provide a venue for get-togethers, meetings and social activities. It has a festive indoor-outdoor feel for unique and compelling events that promote bonding with families and friends. The civic park also has an interactive fountain which features a playful choreography of lights and a water display. This alfresco experience is further heightened by beautiful art installations and lush landscaping.
With a total land area of 9.3 hectares, MarQuee Mall also provides several amenities including a parking area for more than 1,000 vehicles, a public transport terminal dedicated for buses, jeepneys, AUVs and tricycles, a customer lounge, and concierge services.
Inspired by the Kapampangans’ rich and lively culture that is reflected in their propensity to always gather, dine and celebrate life’s occasions, MarQuee Mall was developed to serve as a regional shopping center that brings together a rich and unique experience reminiscent of a lively town plaza, infused with an urban vibe. MarQuee Mall feels familiar yet fresh. It is the favorite gathering place in Central Luzon.
Marquee Mall is the retail component of Marquee, a 53-hectare integrated community in Central Luzon skillfully developed by Ayala Land that also includes MarQuee Place, a residential development located just a few meters away.
“Along with Marquee Place (a residential development by Alveo Land), the mall is the definitive lifestyle destination in Central Luzon. It will showcase Manila’s premier dining, entertainment and shopping experience as well as unique homegrown concepts that will highlight the dynamic lifestyle and rich culture of Kapampangans. The entire development raises the bar of the residential and commercial experience in Central Luzon. This would spur greater economic activity by attracting both local and foreign investors to Pampanga and by generating more employees to contribute to the local economy,” Mark Sablan, MarQuee Mall’s General Manager said.
Only an hour away from Manila and strategically located a few minute drive away from the Subic Clark Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX), MarQuee Mall sits right at Angeles Exit of the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX).
