Statement of Interest

Designed by the architect as his own house and offices, the offices occupying the apartments to the NE side of the building. Cowie was a Wishaw based architect responsible for many villas and houses in the area as well as some large tenements and church extensions in the town centre. However, his own house is by far his largest and best work known in Wishaw. The building is now divided into two flats.
