How to Buy
This central section of the North Front is modelled. The left-hand bay shown is replicated on both the left and right hand sides of the building forming a total of seven large studio rooms. The art school is still in use today. It is a great work showing originality and one of Europes buildings in the "modern style". Various devices were repeatedly used by Mackintosh in the building among them are the Japanese shield designs on the front fence and a projecting ladder spikes from which the window cleaners worked. The building is meticulously detailed. Form and function combine to produce a building which has adapted a centuries use.
