Northern Lights Inspire Aurora Makeover

21 Jul 2017

The reception of the iconic Aurora office building in Bothwell Street has undergone a £380,000 makeover project managed by JLL.

Originally featuring a natural limestone floor and light stone cladding, the building's owners have introduced colour, texture and good lighting to create a spark of excitement. The refurbishment, based on designs by architects Holmes Miller, was inspired by the building's namesake - the Aurora Borealis.

The new reception area includes a series of unique, classic ring style LED suspended lights, forming infinite bands of light floating above the lounge. Lighting was supplied by Kelvin Lighting and Hulley & Kirkwood were Consultant Engineers.

Built in 2006, the 176,500 sq ft office scheme is fully let with occupiers including Barclays, AECOM, BNP Paribas, Burness Paull, Marks & Clerk, and Aggreko Plc.

Gordon Rogerson, Associate Director from JLL said: "We're very pleased with the final result at the Aurora Building. Through the clever use of lighting and materials, we've been able to create a new reception which increases the available space and depth, while providing a more contemporary look and feel for occupiers and their employees."
