Lumia holds a unique position within The Orchards precinct and Norwest. It has a strong connection to the natural surrounds whilst enjoying the emerging urban amenity offered by
the Norwest city centre and the new Metro station which are in easy walking distance. But Lumia is not all about the urban context. Unlike other developments in the area, Lumia is surrounded with natural assets – large trees, a linear park and waterways.
We embraced a symbiotic relationship with nature and established the design agenda to ensure that each resident would be able to experience these qualities as part of their everyday. Each apartment has been planned to take advantage of the district views and green outlooks with large format windows and oversized balconies. Our research into the future direction for urban living has been carefully integrated into each apartment type. Separation of active living and quiet sleeping zones, oversized kitchens, a variety of storage space, study alcoves and ‘flexi’ rooms. As the name implies, ‘flexi’ rooms can be adapted to meet individual needs with the capability of changing in use over time. The selection of light and textured finishes is driven by the natural qualities of the site.
This level of design rigour is distilled right down to the detailing of joinery including the curved edges to stone benchtops. A key feature of Lumia is the outdoor pool and pavilion. This pavilion is appointed with a collection of communal and intimate dining and lounge areas that overlook the pool and linear park beyond.
