House for an Art Lover was designed by the internationally renowned architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh and is situated in Bellahouston Park.
The exterior of the House for an Art Lover has been realised in materials and craftsmanship as closely as possible to Mackintosh’s 1901 designs.
Inside, Mackintosh designed the entire layout of rooms, while he and his wife provided detailed interior designs for the double-height Entrance Hall, Dining Room, Oval Room and Music Room. Together these rooms have been realised in great detail along with the Main Staircase and Gallery and are referred to as ‘The Mackintosh Suite’ which visitors can explore.
The house is also home to the popular Art Lovers Cafe, Gallery and Shop.
