Photo Gallery: The Hill House
Located high on a slope overlooking the Firth of Clyde, The Hill House is widely acclaimed as Scottish architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s finest domestic creation. Built for publisher Walter Blackie and his family in 1902-3, The Hill House remains a remarkably complete example of Mackintosh’s unique vision: an arresting mix of Arts and Crafts, Art Nouveau, Scottish Baronial, and Japanese influences that anticipated the Modern movement by several decades. Mackintosh’s wife, the artist Margaret Macdonald, collaborated with him on The Hill House’s fairy tale interiors – from the enchanted woods of the entrance hall, to the elegant rose garden of a drawing room with its extraordinary “Sleeping Princess” gesso above the mantle, to the embroidered panels of dreaming women surrounding the bed.
