Mackintosh House

Highly recommended
This wing is a reconstruction of the house of Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868-1928). Its interiors decorated with highly original motifs show that he was a pioneer of architecture and what today is called design. The white wood panelling heightened by the decors has deliberately functional, austere and pure lines. His wife, Margaret Macdonald, created some decorative plaques for the furnishings.
