Analysis of historical development of west range

The Place of Paisley is a complex multi-period building adjacent to, and part of Paisley Abbey.  Containing elements from the medieval monastery, with a number of alterations over subsequent centuries (including an extended period in secular ownership) the building is of enormous significance, yet perhaps often overlooked by its immediate neighbour.  Simpson & Brown were appointed to design new visitor facilities for the Abbey, incorporating parts of the Place – this conservation plan was prepared in advance of this project.
