Paisley - John Neilson Institute
Known as the 'porridge bowl' because of the shape of its beautiful dome, this was originally a school bequeathed to the town by local grocer John Neilson.
The building was converted into apartments in 1993 and won a prestigious Saltire Award for its conversion.
The large atrium has a statue of a Greek philosopher Diogenes, sculpted by Paisley's Alexander Stoddart (Sculptor in Ordinary to the Queen).
