The Lighthouse

Mackintosh 150 The Lighthouse

Step inside Scotland’s Centre for Design and Architecture

The Lighthouse, the first building commissioned to Charles Rennie Mackintosh, is now home to a permanent Mackintosh exhibition.

Now a visitor attraction, the building was first built as an office to The Herald.

An interactive timeline in the exhibition gives those unfamiliar with Mackintosh’s work a chance to appreciate his full works.

The inside of the all-glass viewing platform gives some brilliant views of Glasgow on a clear day. The wooden spiral stairway up to the roof of the building is a sight to behold.

Discover the building in greater detail with our gallery here.
