Broughton Place, Scottish Borders
In 1935, professor Thomas Renton Elliott and his wife commissioned the Edinburgh architectural practice of Rowand Anderson, Paul & Partners to build the house. It was designed by the young and still unknown Basil Spence, then a partner in the firm, in a style far removed from his later modernist architecture. He worked closely with Mrs Elliott to meet her requirements. Work began in 1936 and was completed in 1938.
The house was converted into flats in 1975. Until 2010, the ground floor housed a commercial art gallery, the Broughton Gallery, established in 1976, offering contemporary British art and crafts.
