Russell Institute

​This architectural treasure stands tall on the corner of Causeyside Street and speaks to Paisley’s thoughtful sense of wellbeing and community.

The building was commissioned by Miss Agnes Russell to provide child welfare as a tribute to her two brothers and now acts as skills development hub for the residents in Renfrewshire.

Opened in 1927, the masterful building oozes history and fine craftsmanship – perfect addition to your Paisley photo album.

Many urban areas would love to have a measure of the pedigree that this post-industrial conurbation boasts. Aside from its textile legacy, and illustrious denizens, Paisley has an incredible architectural heritage, from the 12th-Century Abbey, with its glorious Edward Burne-Jones windows, to its Victorian Observatory, to the stunning Art Deco Russell Institute.
