  • It was definitely unlike any other condominiums I've visited. I open my door and I see generous space, not another door along a hallway.

    Entrepreneur Mary Jane Naong has been living in the city of Manila for almost a decade when she decided that it was time for a change of address. Believing that moving to Makati would do well for her business, she searched the area for months looking for a project that will best suit her needs. Little did she know that the perfect address was located right around her old backyard.

    “I’ve seen Illumina Residences quite a few times already, but haven’t been giving it much attention since it was still quite near my old place,” she said. Passing by one night however, Ms. Naong became mesmerized at the sight of the towering structure now tastefully lit against an ink-black sky. 

    “I became really curious because it looked really beautiful in the evening. So when I went jogging the next day, I asked the sales agent who was giving away flyers for Illumina to take me around. After that I knew my search was over.” Seeing the tastefully-designed lobby and lounge area, Ms. Naong was even more impressed with the layout of the units.

    Illumina Residences’ single-loaded hallways are separated by an atrium, adding privacy and serenity. Compared to other projects that Ms. Naong visited, Illumina’s units are more spacious and with bigger floor areas. These generous unit cuts allow for a more relaxed lifestyle and limitless decorating possibilities.

    Every unit also has its own balcony, giving each resident a view of Metro Manila’s skylines. “It was definitely unlike any other condominiums I’ve visited. I open my door and I see generous space, not another door along a hallway. This is why I made sure that I get a unit where there’s an atrium, so I can take advantage of having even more space,” she said.

    Developer’s reputation

    Despite already being impressed with the structure, Ms. Naong became even more decided in buying a unit when she found out who the developer was. “I was consulting my family about buying a unit already and when they found out it was a project of DMCI Homes, they really pushed me to go through my plans of buying. They said that DMCI Homes is one of the most trusted real estate developers in the country, and that I can trust that their developments are the best.”

    DMCI Homes has been known to be a reliable partner in delivering homes for the hardworking individual. The company offers various projects that not just provide a space to go home every day, but unique lifestyle options that add convenience to everyday living.

    “One thing I was sure of is that since it’s from DMCI Homes, the residents and I are secured. Apart from strong foundation of the structure, security is also not a problem.”

    Even during turnover, the building’s Property Management Office was truly a big help – a DMCI Homes signature. “They were so helpful. They made me feel like I was a part of a very big family. Even now that I’ve already moved in, they are still always happy to lend a hand whenever I need them.”

    Convenience of location

    “Of course, one can’t put aside the covenience of Illumina Residences’ location. It is in the center of everything. No matter which part of Manila I want to go – Manila, Makati, Ortigas or Quezon City, I’m sure to have easy access to these areas,” Ms. Naong said. Aside from this, Illumina Residences is located in front major roads – avenues that are wide enough to easliy go through city traffic. Hospitals, exclusive schools, and even major lifestyle malls are also within reach.

    Illumina Residences is a landmark situated in V. Mapa corner P. Sanchez, Sta. Mesa--a location that allows easy access to the Makati and Ortigas Business Districts, as well as to Manila and Mandaluyong commercial centers. In minutes, residents can be in workplaces or campuses, or can be home after a busy day. The place is also accessible by public transport.

    Modern Minimalist Architecture

    The 32-storey building’s Modern Minimalist design is characterized by clean, uncluttered lines. The subdued earth colors inspire a tranquil ambience, providing homeowners a much-needed distance from the demands of daily routines.  Illumina Residences’ architecture also inspires the use of available lighting, which can lead to less artificial light use and therefore, less electricity expenses. The design of the windows allows natural light to enter, and this benefit is complemented by cross-ventilation. The number of windows gives residents plenty of opportunities to experience the cool breeze.

    Resort-like amenities  

    Illumina’s very relaxed, resort-like amenities offer valuable respites that condo dwellers look forward to. At the ground level, residents can take a cool dip at the swimming pool, or play games with neighbors at the multi-purpose play court. There’s also a fitness gym, with state-of-the-art fitness equipment and exercise sets that enhance workout routines. At the podium level are function areas. Friends and family can also enjoy fun times together at the Sky Lounge or at the function hall. “There’s so much that Illumina Residences has to offer. I’m very happy with my new home, and I will definitely encourage my friends to live here as well,” Ms. Naong ended.
