The iconic carpet factory was designed by Victorian architect William Leiper, and is modelled on the Doge’s Palace in Venice. It was built between 1888 and 1892 and was used as a production carpet factory until the 1950s. The building is unique in terms of its design and construction, and is now one of Glasgow’s most protected sites. The Winding House annex was completed in 1904, and housed all the winding equipment for carpet production. Templetons was a hugely successful company, producing carpet for the West Wing of the Whitehouse, the Taj Mahal and the Houses of Parliament.
