CRAIGIE HALL, GLASGOW
This magnificent house was designed by John Honeyman and then additions and fittings by Charles Rennie Mackintosh while with Honeyman and Keppie. The official Buildings at Risk Register's record notes : "Built for Sir Thomas Mason, later refitted by Green of Green's Playhouse. The celebrated "Tontine heads" are loosely arranged at entrance. Category A for remarkably complete interiors of national importance". It goes on to note its more recent history of neglect for a few years. The new owners have quite understandably wanted to subdivide the building into more practical units and refer to previous extensions. Of particular interest is an unique organ within a casement designed by Mackintosh. While the proposals to do maintenance and ensure the continuing use of the buildings is considered very positive, some aspects have raised a great deal of concern, particularly about the organ being removed. That last link shows some exquisite interior views. http://rki.lt/1kQTgvc http://rki.lt/1kQUHK5 http://rki.lt/1kQViLP
