The Hill House is one of the finest of Charles Rennie Mackintosh´s domestic creations, sitting high above the Clyde commanding fine views of the river estuary. It was commissioned in 1902 by Walter Blackie, who wanted an individual house and garden. Most of the furniture and all the interior fittings and decorative schemes are also by Mackintosh. Displays include work of new designers, demonstration of the effects of the wonderful stained glass, and a selection of original fabrics. The gardens have been restored to their former glory, with a sculpture by George Rickey.
The Hill House is part of the following Editors' Picks:
"The Hill House is a work of art in itself. One of designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh´s finest creations, it has sweeping views of the Firth of Clyde. As well as the house, Mackintosh also designed most of the interiors, furniture and decorative fittings, even prescribing the colour of cut flowers so that they would match the decor."
