The Hill� House on Upper Colquhoun Street, Helensburgh was designed 1902 � 1904, by Scotland�s world famous architect, Charles Rennie Mackintosh as a family home for Glasgow book publisher, Walter Blackie.��
The Hill House is an architectural gem designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh for Walter Blackie and his family. This domestic home is an arresting mix of Arts and Crafts, Scottish Baronial and Art Nouveau styles.
As part of an innovative conservation project, the house will soon become enclosed in the ‘Box’, a steel and mesh structure designed by award winning architects Carmody Groake.
Doors Open Day will be a final chance to see the exterior of the house before construction begins on the ‘Box’ and find out more about the project.
