The Mackintosh House

Furniture in the Mackintosh House drawing roomCharles Rennie Mackintosh and Margaret Macdonald Mackintosh were artists and designers whose style is now world famous. Together they designed their Glasgow home, which was decorated in his distinctive style, remarkable then, and now, for the disciplined austerity of the furnishings and decoration. 

The Mackintosh House, now an integral part of the Hunterian Art Gallery, is a careful reassemblage of the main rooms from the Mackintoshes’ Glasgow home. The Mackintosh House Introduction Gallery tells the fascinating story of the artists, their house and the Mackintosh collection. 

The Hunterian Art Gallery is located on Hillhead Street beside the University Library, a five-minute walk from the Hunterian Museum.
