Charles Wilson, 1855
Category A Listed
Built in 1855, this beautiful townhouse has been an operating theatre, archbishop’s residence, convent and is now home to a well-loved Scottish international aid agency. A rare chance to see the charming original features and striking 1955 Jack Coia remodelling.
This is an exclusive opportunity to gain access to a working office housed in a fascinating building in Park Circus. SCIAF is celebrating its 50th Anniversary and as a result has commissioned historians to research the history of events relating to the premises. In the past the building has been used as a nursing home, a Franciscan convent and a home to an Archbishop. Come and learn about the people who resided in this magnificent building and why we are so proud to be part of the Religious heritage of this address.
There will be guided tours of the building throughout the weekend and scheduled presentations to explain more about SCIAF and our relationship with our residence. There will also be a chance to ask questions to the historians who have been involved in the research process. You will be able to find out more about our work in the past and present through viewing out 50th Anniversary exhibition and enjoy a cup of tea or coffee as you do so.
