Zinnia Towers shine with Lumiventt technology

(The Philippine Star) - August 23, 2013 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Zinnia Towers, a 1.9-hectare residential edifice soon to be completed along North EDSA, Quezon City, is expected to offer future residents their own piece of paradise as the property is being developed into a resort-inspired nature enclave.

Almost 70 percent of the entire property will be developed for valuable recreational areas that will afford residents to enjoy natural surroundings and areas for social development.

Aside from a spacious clubhouse, the project also has a swimming pool, children’s play area, barbecue pits, and koi pond. Also, there will be garden trails, picnic grove, palm promenade, jogging path, Sky Park and an open field.

But more than the available spaces, the project’s developer, DMCI Homes, takes pride in the use of the Lumiventt technology – giving home seekers more reasons to choose Zinnia as the address of choice.

A signature of DMCI Homes, Lumiventt is part of the company’s commitment to establishing green architecture early on.

A combination of the words “lumen,” which refers to light, and “ventus,” which means wind – Lumiventt is a proprietary design scheme that allows the natural flow of light and ventilation throughout a building structure.  In condo living parlance, this means that natural air and light can circulate freely around the entire building, from the corridors, common areas, and even all the way to the residential units, courtesy of the unique architectural configuration.

Specifically developed for its high-rise products, the smart design involves the basic but often overlooked concept of the duality of seasons in the Philippine tropics. Based on the basic principles of airflow, winds passing through and around the structure can create areas of positive and negative pressure, so DMCI Homes developed the concept of incorporating large openings into the building façade to serve as channels through which the air can move through the Sky Patios or three-story openings on the back and front of the building.

 Meanwhile, natural light is allowed to illuminate the indoors, through the Sky Patios and the Sky Garden, which includes landscaped atriums incorporated in every five floors of the building. The atriums are adorned with indoor plants, water features, mood lighting, and pathways that add a refreshing feel to the corridors of the building – a stark contrast to the typical image of cramped condo projects built by other developers. Aside from its function, this amenity also provides an invaluable benefit equivalent to a “breathing place” when applied to a high-rise structure.  

Through Lumiventt, all residents will enjoy fresh air and natural light whether they are living in Zinnia Towers ’ studio, one, two, or three-bedroom units. Zinnia’s North Tower has 836 units available in 10 unit configurations and is expected to be completed by May 2016.
