A wonderful building and right now you have the opportunity to live in this apartment in the Cornelius Armour-designed art deco Luma Tower in Glasgow, Scotland.
The Luma Tower is one of the best preserved are deco buildings in Glasgow and as a result has had category B listing status since 1988. Of course, this is no longer used for light bulb manufacturing (its original purpose), having been converted into apartments in the early 90s after a period of dereliction.
In fact, the housing association that took on the building pretty much stopped this one from being demolished, so credit is definitely due in that direction. It resulted in 43 apartments in the original building, with a further 12 in a ‘creative reproduction’ of the original building’s style to the rear.
This is a two-bedroom apartment and one that might be familiar if you read interiors magazines regularly. Apparently this one has appeared in Ideal Homes’ ’25 Beautiful Homes’ magazine and you can see why.
While the structure maintains the 1930s look, the interior is a rather cool retro/modern finish, with subdued shades for the walls, some classic design pieces dotted around the place and a lovely flow about the place. You can imagine this being a great place for a party or family gathering.
In terms of the layout, a hallway leads to the spacious open plan kitchen/dining/living room with high ceilings, with two double bedrooms beyond that, as well as a large shower room with heated floor.
Externally, the property has a security entry system and private parking to the front plus access to the front and rear landscaped gardens.
£139,999 is the asking price of this one.
