Interesting building

I'm a fan of finding new uses for achitecturally interesting but unwanted buildings. On a recent trip to Torphins, Aberdeenshire, I found this good example.

The former church has been transformed into a Scotmid cooperative supermarket, including a bakery and Post Office.

I like how a modern shop has been built inside the building retaining a lot of the original features.

A great use of an unused building and a new 'centre' of the community in the village.
