See Inside the Mind of Glasgow Golden Boy Charles Rennie Mackintosh
Sat on the fringes of Cessnock in Bellahouston Park, House For An Art Lover was constructed between 1989 and 1996 from an original Charles Rennie Mackintosh design, which he had entered into an architectural competition in 1901. It’s hard to believe that this mastermind was disqualified from the competition, with his design disregarded, due to a late entry. Years on, however, a local architect brought Mackintosh’s dream to life by building it from the original blueprints. Awash with Mackintosh’s signature floral motifs, graceful light rays and flowing lines, House For An Art Lover is a winner of a dreamy arts and events venue, and true snapshot into the inner workings of its creator’s mind.
