'House for an Art Lover' - Charles Rennie Mackintosh



Mackintosh's 'House for an Art Lover' was designed in 1901, but not completed until one-hundred years later. Therein, naturally, lies a story.  And now, we see the mark of his genius on work still superior to most produced today.  

Glasgow has never looked so sunlit, or so alive.

And it's a castle as well. I love this.

I love this building and have created a link to your blog. Many thanks.

Do you know what happened to the rooms that were not planned out by Mackintosh originally eg the attic?

all the best
