Little do most people know, it’s not only the penthouse levels that have high ceilings, but the 2nd floor as well that excels in height.
This feature is unique to the small hand full of suites on the 2nd floor of Lumiere, all facing east in a separate section apart from the amenity area. And I must admit that it’s a rather clever idea because many lower levels in downtown condos are so shaded by neighbouring buildings that they end up dark and cave-like. In this instance on the other hand, the maximum amount of light is found with extraordinary soft loft style ceilings.
The other advantage to this height is the feeling of space that is created through this illusion. So, despite this floor plan not being incredibly spacious, it still feels very roomy and comfortable because of the grandeur of the proportions.
As you can see in the photo above, the ceiling height is almost twice the height of the door, but what is challenging to see is that the actual size of the door frame is also abnormally tall. The listing itself remarks that the height is 14 feet, which is incredibly unique to this neighbourhood.
