Imagine standing on the top of a tower at night, watching countless vehicles traverse along EDSA, establishments light up with their shop lights, people rush with their phones at hand, and houses shine throughout the vicinity. Life in the city is a state of continuous movement as everyone goes through the flow and leaves a bright trail behind. Awe is on lights in motion and motion expressed through light – this is the paramount inspiration for Light 2.

Light 2’s iconic façade captures that natural phenomenon of a busy everyday city life with its bold, curved lines with crisscross patterns and converging sleek tiers depicting relentless movement in the Metro. Visually, it resembles the fluidity of light motion photography through its Promethean design. Veering from monotony while maintaining an efficient, uniform system, Light 2 translates its exteriors with a fluid, linear pattern that extends from the podium to the tower’s apex. The uniformity is then broken into several vertical lines using a dichromatic approach of contrasting colors.

Since the project is a follow-up to Light, a relatively similar development, the challenge lies in creating a harmonious balance that would complement Light 1 in terms of use, flow, and aesthetic. Although the two exhibit striking contrast with color and contour, Light 2 stands on its own with its diverse and unique eminence among other developments. And as a grand development situated at the busiest motorway in Metro Manila, it is one striking orientation that does not sacrifice comfort and efficiency with style for the residents.

These days, the market demands an elevated standard balancing functionality and style, especially on the amenities. To adhere to those standards, the amenities cater to all types of residents. Aside from accessibility and convenience, Light 2 seamlessly blends the functionality of public and private spaces to serves as an urban oasis for homeowners and their needs.

As for the pedestrian flow, both Light 1 and Light 2 developments are connected through an elevated walkway, where pedestrians can gain access to the Light Mall, as well as other places in the vicinity.

The development offers an entire opulence of recreational facilities exclusive to its residents. Sprawling lush landscapes, expansive lapping pools, vibrant play areas for kids, and a slew of serene pocket gardens people elevate the standard for convenient urban dwelling.
