Knight Frank’s latest development in King’s Cross is all about building a hip community

If you think King’s Cross is a dull district in London, think again. With the arrival of Central Saint Martins School of Art and Design and notorious companies like Google, Universal and the Guardian Media Group moving their London headquarters to the district, King’s Cross is set to become London’s hottest creative hub.

Located at the heart of King’s Cross, Knight Frank’s latest residential development Luma is a collection of contemporary apartments designed by award-winning architects Squire & Partners, and interior designers, Conran + Partners.

Communal living in London N1C

With building a youthful and creative community as the core concept, one unique feature Luma has is a resident’s lounge at the entrance lobby. Featuring plush furnishing, a fireplace and a dedicated work zone, it creates an ideal space for residents to meet and greet friends, catch up on emails or simply relax by the fire with a newspaper.

Parkside retreat

Despite being in one of London’s most established and well-connected districts, Luma will still be the perfect place for residents who enjoy a bit of tranquility. For a moment of calm, a host of inspiring open spaces are within one-minute walking distance. Granary Square, a crisp, crowded public piazza that feels like a buzzy university campus in summer, is just in the vicinity of Luma.

The historic Regent’s Canal also runs through the heart of King’s Cross with Camden Town and Islington within reach, making it the perfect place for residents to walk, run or cycle along its towpath.

Stay connected

With no more than 10 minutes away from Oxford Circus and Paddington, King’s Cross leads the way as a national and international travel hub as it is served by six tube lines. Not to mention Paris and Brussels are just over two hours away by Eurostar, and all London airports are easily accessible within the hour; a true connection destination for all globetrotters.

King’s Cross also offers a range of quality places to eat and drink, granting it the reputation as a vibrant foodie destination. Al fresco dining? Check. Jazz nights? Check. Cocktail bars? Check. There will never be a dull moment for Luma residents.

Cultural escape

No visit to King’s Cross is complete without a visit to the British Library, which isn’t just the national library of the U.K., but also the largest library in the world by number of items catalogued. King’s Cross is also the new address for major creative events like designjunction, part of the London Design Festival (LDF) programme, making it the perfect destination for creative minds to seek new inspirations.

To tick every box, every apartment at Luma is equipped with a home automation system controlled by a touchscreen panel as well as an integrated kitchen fitted with bespoke units and worktops crafted in wood. Residents can also enjoy complimentary concierge service for the peace of mind. With its convenience and connectedness, Luma is truly the home for modern creative minds.
