House for an Art Lover puts new studio and heritage centre in for planning
September 1 2011
Occupying the grounds of Mackintosh’s House for an Art Lover the scheme will see the stables and doocot of the former Ibroxhill House (which once occupied the plot) converted to form a self-contained heritage centre.
This will accommodate the digital model and archive of the British Empire Exhibition alongside information about shipbuilding on the Clyde and the social and industrial heritage of the surrounding area.
The scheme also entails creation of new artist studios, a meeting room and café as part of the House for an Art Lover’s scheme to foster a creative arts community.
A newly introduced landscaping strategy will create space for play and connect the grounds to the pavilion whilst a revised parking road junction will also be necessitated.
