Northern lights inspire refurbishment for Glasgow’s Aurora Building

How teamwork and specialist advice helped achieve ambitions   


Glasgow, UK




The reception of an iconic Glasgow office building has undergone a light-inspired makeover costing £380,000 and project managed by JLL.

How we worked together

The Aurora Building, bought for £72.6m in 2015 underwent the refresh after its owners decided to modernise the buildings dated, worn and bland corporate principal entrance.

The refurbishment, based on designs by architects Holmes Miller, was inspired by the building’s namesake – the Aurora Borealis.


Originally featuring a natural limestone floor and light stone cladding, the building’s owners wanted to introduce colour, texture and good lighting to create a spark of excitement that would lure people to use the entrance as an extension of the business facilities within the building.
