Lukus De­vel­op­ments takes the edge off the or­di­nary with an em­pha­sis on style.

Tran­si­tional styling with touches of con­tem­po­rary hosts a fresh­ness and ap­peal that strikes a chord with those seek­ing com­fort and en­com­pass­ing lux­ury. A home of bright flows and qual­ity fin­ishes, Lukus De­vel­op­ments takes the edge off the or­di­nary with an em­pha­sis on style.

Pro­vid­ing a wide range of flex­i­ble and tai­lored de­signs and ideas for those seek­ing the ad­ven­ture in cre­at­ing a home of dis­tinc­tive flair and per­sonal at­trac­tions, Lukus De­vel­op­ments cap­tures the de­fin­i­tive cus­tom home build­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. “Ev­ery home re­quires its own fea­tures and func­tions and we be­lieve that ac­cred­i­ta­tions and continued ed­u­ca­tion are vi­tally im­por­tant to en­sur­ing our clients re­ceive the best ser­vice pos­si­ble,” shares pres­i­dent Do­minic Ur­ban.

This home in Sil­ver Springs re­veals views of Beau­mont Park and the river be­low with ex­pan­sive glaz­ing chan­nel­ing light, en­hanc­ing a bright and win­ning dé­cor. De­signed for a fam­ily with older chil­dren, it fea­tures four bed­rooms up­stairs with two ad­di­tional bed­rooms in the base­ment, host­ing am­ple ca­pac­i­ties for an ac­tive house­hold. Fea­tur­ing 3,500 square feet on the first two levels, base­ment com­forts add ca­sual func­tion and en­ter­tain­ments.

“The open­ness of the main floor is one of its nicest fea­tures,” de­scribes Ur­ban. “The fire­place is tall not lin­ear, pro­vid­ing a co­zi­ness with mas­sive slid­ing doors open­ing to the front yard and south-fac­ing views of down­town Cal­gary, the COP, and moun­tain vis­tas.” Of­fer­ing en­ergy-ef­fi­cient fea­tures that in­clude a dual-zone ther­mo­stat for up­stairs and down, de­sir­able win­dow fea­tures, lowflow toi­lets, and much more en­sure both sav­ings and value.

Ex­hibit­ing an in­te­rior de­sign by Kim­ber­ley Skow of Kim­ber­ley’s Ur­ban De­sign, she says, “We wanted to be bud­get con­scious while sus­tain­ing a fresh­ness and com­fort that of­fers some­thing unique in each space. You al­most feel like you rec­og­nize it, see­ing it for the first time.” For ex­am­ple, the master en­suite cap­tures a spa-like feel with mar­ble-look tile climb­ing walls and gen­er­ous shower ca­pac­i­ties amidst smooth fin­ishes and well-de­fined fea­tures.

“We even se­lected a fur­ni­ture fin­ish on the hard­woods, pro­vid­ing a more pol­ished look that re­flects all of the nat­u­ral light that the home re­ceives, mak­ing hard­woods feel fresh and clean and lux­u­ri­ous,” adds Skow. The ad­join­ing nook area be­yond the ca­sual din­ing room of­fers a pri­vate lounge that is sep­a­rated from the great room. “This home has a con­tem­po­rary edge but is soft­ened by a ca­sual rus­tic charm that has uni­ver­sal ap­peal, al­low­ing one to jazz it up or tone it down with per­sonal dé­cor.”

Equipped with the ex­pe­ri­ence and ex­per­tise of de­sign and build teams to help cre­ate and com­plete a home spe­cific to your needs, Lukus De­vel­op­ments strive to sat­isfy those who ap­pre­ci­ate the value of a full ser­vice de­sign and build com­pany. “Whether it’s con­tem­po­rary, char­ac­ter, crafts­man, mod­ern, west coats, or your own unique in­ter­pre­ta­tion of home, we can make it hap­pen,” shares Ur­ban.

Dual-tone maple millwork hosts dove­tail, soft­close draw­ers and cab­i­nets with a white lac­quered perime­ter con­trast­ing with a Vel­vet Truf­fle stained is­land. LED va­lence and rain glass, up­per cab­i­net light­ing en­hances the dé­cor. Car­peted, open ris­ers com­ple­ment the maple stair­case in a vel­vet Truf­fle stain. Pow­der coated steel spin­dles pro­vide con­sis­tent style.
