There have been so many influential designers of houses, indoor decor of houses, and inovating designers of the inside of houses. One such brilliant mind was charles rennie mackintosh – he pioneered a particular style that was so different and fresh that his contemporaries rolled over and waved him along. There was something so fundamentally different about CRMs works too. When we assembled in the coktail room in readiness to partake supper in the fantastic dining hall up at one of his more elaborate buildings, we all felt an overpowering sense of something being lost imminently. Little did we know that his fantastic unique and much treasured building in Glasgow, the school of art, would be destroyed by fire – after four years of total rebuild and restoration after the last big fire. Someone must have it in for ha magnificent building. Very very sad.
