Description

Learn how Mackintosh transformed Sauchiehall Street elevations for Miss Cranston's finest Tea Room, see where he lived with Margaret Macdonald, and his work for the Lady Artists Club in Blythswood Square.

This walk is led by conservation specialists from Simpson and Brown Architects who have been leading the sensitive restoration of Mackintosh's most important commission, for his most enlightened patron, Miss Catherine Cranston. This short walk will begin on the Sauchiehall Street elevation of the Tea Rooms, move to view the rear elevations in the Lane, where a Hill House in Helensburgh chimney has apparently found its way to the urban setting, and then move to the site of Mackintosh and Margaret's former flat in Blythswood Square. The walk finishes by examining the door case remodelling by Mackintosh for the Lady Artists Club in the Square. Describing how he has stencilled the site hoardings for his parton Miss Cranston, Mackintosh wrote to his friend Hermann Muthesius in 1903 that he had been 'out each morning at 6 o'clock decorating the barricade' This walk will re-trace his steps, if not his early morning timings!
