Lumen

an optimal flow of daylight and space

The Lumen building comprises a ground floor and a first floor shopping level, with nine apartments above. The shopping levels have been designed with flexible layouts, respecting the everchanging demand for numbers and sizes of individual shops.

More Less

The overall development, with a relatively high-use density, has been designed as an urban volume. The design concept has led to modeling this urban volume in such a way that an optimum flow of daylight and space cuts through the building. This concept has been applied on both urban level, as well as on individual apartment level. On an urban level this concept results in the visual accessibility of the overall building, whereas on apartment level it means light will enter the individual unit through the courtyard. Each apartment has its own character, and has been positioned based on views out and sun orientation.
