LUMINA IS INSPIRED.
With an interior atrium evocative of Frank Lloyd Wright’s New York Guggenheim Museum and a facade covered in beautifully-detailed sun screens inspired by symmetry patterns found in Middle Eastern art, Lumina is an inspired, thoughtful masterpiece of mixed-use living in Denver’s hottest neighborhood. The creative inspiration behind the project made it a true pleasure to work on, and the lighting solutions we devised had to match its considerable imagination.
LUMINA HAS HEART.
Built on the former site of the beloved Italian restaurant Pagliacci’s, Lumina honors its predecessor by incorporating its original neon lighting into its decor, creating a reverent link between the rapidly-evolving LoHi neighborhood’s quainter past and its exciting present while bringing a unique zest to Lumina’s imaginative spaces. We at FLC love this kind of heartfelt detail in an impressive project that could have easily overlooked such an opportunity.
LUMINA MEANS LIGHT.
Lumina’s design heavily incorporates daylighting, creating a beautiful space that offers even its individual residents control over their unit’s temperature and light levels. FLC had to determine how to complement the daylighting with electric lights that would optimize all of Lumina, and the result is a space that not only looks amazing, but is extremely energy-efficient.
ACOLYTE RIBBONLYTE: AN ONGOING FAVORITE.
Any luxury apartment building in the highly-competitive LoHi neighborhood has to have electric lighting that stands out – that’s where FLC came in. To create a sharp look and a nice, warm glow in the central atrium, we provided the Acolyte 4.4 watt Ribbonlyte. With 90 CRI, a variety of color temperatures and the flexibility of a piece of ribbon, the Ribbonlyte is one of the most versatile high-performance products on the market and a favorite of ours that can also be seen in our recent ART Hotel project.
PAL MICROLINEA: TOO GOOD TO NOT HAVE IN EVERY ROOM.
Lumina’s central atrium is also peppered with another favorite of ours – the amazing PAL Microlinea series. With their sleek look and myriad mounting options, the Microlinea was an obvious choice for general illumination of not only the vitally important central atrium, but each individual unit. In Lumina’s apartments, the combination of the Microlinea and daylighting makes for a beautiful, energy-efficient space. Lumina also features Lumax Lighting in their garage and utility areas.
