Accès des voyageurs
There is a lift as it is a newly built appartment ,however is traditional in style on the exterior in order to compliment the traditional tenement buildings in the vicinity, as made famous in the celebrated artist Avril Paton's well known painting' Windows in The West' - a copy of which I am delighted to have in my kitchen -it depicts a Glasgow tenement in the snow as dusk falls. You can gain an insight into the different lifestyles of the occupants who inhabit the building behind the windows. I am proud of my building too ,it is indeed an iconic building and is extremely secure having video entry phone access.
