Charles Rennie Mackintosh

One of Glasgow's most famous sons, Charles Rennie Mackintosh was born on June 7th 1868 and died on December 10th 1928. He is renowned throughout the world for his work as a designer, architect and artist and was the most important representative of the Art Nouveau movement in the UK. No visit to Glasgow would be complete without visiting some of the locations that are historically connected to Mackintosh.

Some of the buildings associated with Charles Rennie Mackintosh's career as an architect can still be admired in Glasgow. The Royal Highland Fusiliers Regimental Museum, the former Glasgow Herald offices that are now The Lighthouse, the centre of Architecture, Design and the City, the Glasgow School of Art building and the Hill House were all built during his lifetime, while other designs were only carried out after his death. In particular, his House for an Art Lover was built in Bellahouston Park in the early 1990s and completed in 1996. The design was originally drawn up for a competition in a German design magazine and is now a great visitor attraction and private function venue. Contemporary designers have brought Mackintosh's designs to life and visitors can compare their creations with the original drawings.

The influence and style of Rennie Mackintosh can be felt throughout Glasgow, and the Sandyford Lodge is a great place from which to explore Mackintosh's work across the city. Our comfortable and affordable 19-room hotel is particularly close to the Kelvingrove Art Gallery and Museum, where the Charles Rennie Mackintosh and Glasgow Style Gallery is a wonderful introduction to the range of Glasgow style media and techniques over six stories and admission is free of charge.
