This is Crathie Court built in 1952, but its art deco features show pre-war design influence in the projecting balconies and lines of porthole windows. Set in well maintained grounds, the building was designed as 88 flats for single people at a time when almost all housing was for the standard nuclear family. In recognition of its importance the building gained a Saltire Award.

Whilst I believe that the flats at Anniesland cross were the inspiration for Goldfinger's Trellick Tower, to say Crathie Court was influenced by the Trellick is a bit like saying the White Album has a bit of Definitely Maybe about it...
