Oak Room

Oak Room

Charles Rennie Mackintosh's Ingram Street Tearooms

We made some fascinating discoveries while assessing the Oak Room.   The room is one of the largest and most striking of Charles Rennie Mackintosh's Ingram Street Tearooms.

We found several clues as to how the tearoom's appearance may have changed over the years.

The Oak Room was built on two levels – ground floor and mezzanine. Over 600 pieces of timber have been sorted, moved, arranged, condition assessed and documented.

Each part was laid out in sections and photographed.  These to-scale images have now been pulled together to form a model of the room.
