MANILA, Philippines - Illumina Residences Manila (IRM) is a well-planned and worthwhile addition to Manila’s already impressive cityscape. The 32-storey high-rise condominium is designed to offer incomparable conveniences for superlative city living. IRM has many advantages that make it an ideal home environment, especially for urban dwellers who wish to experience comfortable living after confining, competitive hours at work.

With that in mind, DMCI Homes, one of the country’s top property developers, designed a high rise that utilizes its site’s lush greenery. Trees were preserved, and large portions of the property were left untouched, providing the area with more than enough flora to benefit future residents. The structure was conceived to maximize these natural benefits, allowing the IRM community plenty of opportunities for “green living.”

Because of the focus on the preservation of trees and plants, the IRM building was conceptualized to become a unique home environment that inspires residents to be more conscious of their surroundings. Units open up to single hallways with central atriums that provide quiet areas perfect for relaxation. To further complement the multiple atriums, the property’s landscaping in specific locations is ever-pleasant and conducive to a variety of activities.

Also making the IRM condominium ideal for green living is its architecture, which allows for better lighting and ventilation. With this energy-saving design, residents are encouraged to use less electricity for artificial lights, and even air conditioners. The cool breeze and the surrounding greens help create a calming hub that keeps thoughts of daily routines away.

IRM has spacious units that cater to different lifestyles. Masterfully finished units have balconies, giving residents entrancing, 360-degree views of Metro Manila’s skylines. They can also escape daily to the condominium’s numerous building amenities, which are resort-like and exceptional.

These days, the importance of saving energy and preserving the environment cannot be stressed enough. And as city dwellers look for more practical, more convenient ways to live in an urban environment, Illumina Residences Manila gives a distinctly nature-friendly alternative to the usual costly glass-and-concrete structures.

Model units are now available for viewing at the project site, where interested home buyers can already get a glimpse of green living at Illumina Residences Manila. The project is scheduled for turnover by April 2011.

DMCI Homes is the country’s premiere triple-A builder/developer that brings serviced, themed communities within reach of urban families.
