Imagine waking up every morning to a perfect beam of sunlight, eating breakfast amongst a warm glow and falling asleep as a cool breeze flows over you. This is the feel of living at Lumiére Residencies. Because of their mix of natural ease and luxury living, the brand-new apartments have been filling up quickly. With only a few units left, Lumiére wants to welcome you to your new home.

Lumiére Residencies was built through a partnership of DGS Holdings (Pvt) Ltd and award-winning architects, Design Group Five International (Pvt) Ltd. with a vision to create comfortable, practical and modern spaces while introducing alluring and unique architectural designs. Utilising previous experience in high quality developments, the development team introduces Lumiére as a new standard of sophisticated housing to the country.

As the first Sri Lankan-designed project to be a winner in the Best Architecture (Multiple Units) category of the Asia Pacific Residential Property Awards, the world’s most prestigious real estate competition, Lumiére raises the bar for apartment standards in Sri Lanka.  The name Lumiére means “light” and reflects the building’s main design concept of maximizing the natural light provided by this tropical country. Natural light adds to the open and warm feel of the apartments as well as contributes to the energy efficiency of the building. The spacious windows in every room are designed to increase cross ventilation. They also keep the need for fans, air conditioning and artificial light to a minimum.  The 29-unit apartment building stands at 34, M.E.D Dabare Road, Colombo 5, where it is in perfect balance of city proximity and rural serenity. The surrounding neighbourhood is set back from the busy Colombo city streets to provide a quiet environment while staying within minutes of schools, hospitals and supermarkets including Asian International School, British School, Asiri hospitals and a handful of Cargills, Keels and Laugfs supermarkets.

As for the layout, they’ve given the most thought to liveability. Every unit has a specially constructed terrace with excellent ventilation and a privacy wall to make laundry day a breeze. The finishes in each unit are top-quality British or European fittings with high longevity. The rooftop supplies a tranquil pool for cooling down in the island heat as well as air-conditioned fitness and entertainment centres.

With a smaller building and fewer units, Lumiére has a cosier, safer and more elite feel than most. For the peace-of-mind of its residents, the building has a multilayered security system including a 20-foot-high  wall around the building, security guards, an electronic door locking system and a panic button in each unit in case of health and safety emergencies. Lumiére also meets all stringent statutory requirements and has received its Condominium Management Authority certificate as well as its Certificate of Conformity and all deeds are in place for immediate transfer. The apartments are almost sold out, and with the variety of floor plans, convenient location and high standards it’s understandable why. The balance of comfort and ease makes it the perfect place to play, relax, start life and end the day. Be the next to experience what luxury living at Lumiére has to offer.
