Luma King’s Cross // Squire and Partners

Text description provided by the architects.

Luma is Squire and Partners’ first building in Argent’s King’s Cross development. The 61 apartment scheme occupies a prime position between Lewis Cubitt Park and Jellicoe Gardens, with a design which knits into the evolving urban setting and references the surrounding natural landscape. The building establishes a strong visual and physical connection between the two gardens with a central glazed residential entrance, and apartment layouts which ensure that all residences enjoy park views, many with dual aspect.

In a nod to the former industrial character of King’s Cross, the design creates a pair of warehouse-style buildings within an elegant contemporary envelope. Facade designs allude to the history of King’s Cross as a significant railway terminus with an intricately detailed contemporary envelope organised by a rational masonry frame.

Elevations are characterised by splayed bays which undulate within the primary building line to create striking geometric balconies..
