Inspired by the texture, luminosity and mythology of the moon, Luna is a modern apartment home that’s big on style but easy on the wallet. Located in the Ravenna neighborhood close to transit and other amenities, it features 68 small efficiency dwelling units with high-end finishes, appliances and casework, and thoughtful touches that allow residents to live large in these compact units.

The WT Interior Design Studio put their space planning skills to the test in the lobby – which manages to incorporate a wet bar, TV lounge, dining and seating area for entertaining, gathering and working. The design is influenced not only by the name ‘Luna’ but also by simple Scandinavian design. The palette includes light wood, blues, greys and simple patterns such a punched steel screen.
A dynamic tile wall behind simplified booth seating creates a striking focal point upon entry. During construction, the design team participated in multiple ‘box walks’ to assist with coordination of building equipment installation, junction boxes and fire and life safety equipment. In the compact lobby, this attention to detail is what ensures a clean, modern design.
Minimalism for a maximized lifestyle
Clean details inside the micro units minimize visual clutter and make the spaces feel larger than they really are. A unique and soothing color palette differentiates Luna units from its competitors.
