Norwoodville is an iconic twin-pedimented villa in Pollokshields, now renovated as a Mosque and Madrasa. It has unique �Thomsonesque� features such as an alcove decorated with an intricate mirror mosaic.

Norwoodville is an iconic twin pedimented villa in Pollokshields, Europe's first planned green suburb. It was built circa 1878 as a residential dwelling and is described as a "Thomsonesque" Villa.

In the 1920s, it was converted into a Synogogue and served the local Orthodox Jewish community of Pollokshields for over 60 years. In 1988, the then vacant building was acquired by Taleem ul Islam Trust for the growing Muslim community. After being extensively renovated in 2006, the building serves as a Mosque and Madrasa; a unique place of worship and study.
