If you are trying to save abandoned buildings in Scotland, it is only a matter of time before you come across the Bernat Klein Studio by Peter Womersley in Selkirk. This A-Listed concrete building was designed in 1972 and is a building unto itself. It’s obviously award-winning and understandably has a following of dedicated modernists that would love to see it saved and maintained.
It has changed hands repeatedly after being sold by Klein in 1992 and has received planning approval in the past to be converted into two flats. There is extensive damage following some broken pipes still today and the building likely needs a significant investment before it will be safe from further damage.

- – Such a special building a restaurant would be amazing so more people could enjoy it
- – It could also be a wonderful musical and ballet studio
