English House for an Art Lover

The House for an Art Lover is a building constructed between 1989 and 1996 and based on a 1901 design by Charles Rennie Mackintosh with his wife, Margaret MacDonald. The building is situated in Bellahouston Park in Glasgow, Scotland and sits east of the site of the famed Festival Tower of the Empire Exhibition, Scotland of 1938. The idea to actually construct the house from the Mackintoshs' designs came from Graham Roxburgh, a civil engineer in Glasgow who had done refurbishment work on the Mackintosh interiors in Craigie Hall. The house is a venue for art exhibitions and other events, as well as being itself a visitor attraction.

Das House for an Art Lover im Bellahouston Park, Glasgow, ist ein in den 1990er Jahren nach Plänen von Charles Rennie Mackintosh und seiner Frau Margaret MacDonald Mackintosh errichtetes Gebäude.

Das Paar entwarf die Pläne 1901 für den Wettbewerb „Haus eines Kunstfreunds“ der deutschen Zeitschrift Innendekoration. Obwohl nicht preisgekrönt, erregte der Entwurf großes Interesse. 1989 bis 1996 dauerte die möglichst genaue, späte Realisierung durch John Kane, Graeme Robertson und Andrew MacMillan. Das Haus dient heute kulturellen und sozialen Veranstaltungen. (Konzerte, Kurse, Hochzeitsfeiern etc.)
