This Venetian Gothic design was patterned after the western façade of Doge’s Palace in Venice. James Templeton, the owner of a carpet manufacturing company, hired William Leiper to create this stunning, red brick factory. It has been a prominent landmark adjacent to Glasgow Green since opening in 1892. In 1984, the Scottish Development Company converted the landmark into the Templeton Business Centre. In 2013, the former carpet mill was transformed again and renamed Templeton on the Green. The refurbished facility contains offices and apartments.
