This building opened as a clinic for young mothers and children in 1927, and was designed by James Steel Maitland (1887-1982), an architect in the Beaux-Arts tradition; originally from Strone in Argyll, he emigrated to Canada, working in Montreal before returning to Scotland and settling in Paisley.

The bronze sculptures on this building are by Archibald Dawson.
