High ceilings, dark-stained timber joinery, bespoke lighting and soft furnishings create a serene and atmospheric entrance, complemented by a layering of details such as full-height bronze-black metal decorative screens that divide the space, light grey terrazzo flooring with brass inlay pattern, leather upholstery and a Venato marble concierge desk.
As residents and visitors move through the building to the corridor and apartment spaces, the material palette lightens in contrast, to create relaxing, light-filled environments in which to live.
Whether inside the apartments looking out, or outside looking in, the essence of LUMA – the theatre of light and shadow and the considered journey between the two – is unmistakeable: the graphic pattern of the metallic brise soleil on the façade references the pattern of dappled light that forms when sunlight filters through a tree canopy. This effect is replicated throughout the apartment spaces as light passes through the screens and into the rooms, creating a delicate light pattern effect. A similar design motif is repeated in the communal lobby, where latticed screens subtly partition the main reception from a lounge area, which features additional spaces for meetings or relaxation. The screens also modulate light to mitigate the effects of solar gain.
