The team at the Glasgow-based architects has also worked across the spectrum of Mackintosh’s designs from the domestic (at the Hillhouse) through to commercial (at the former Glasgow Herald offices, now The Lighthouse) to his finest cultural and academic work at the School of Art itself (as lead designers for the Heritage Lottery Fund supported Mackintosh Conservation and Access Project in 2007-9). The design team will now work with The Glasgow School of Art to develop the detailed plan for the restoration. Work is expected to start on the building in spring 2016 with the aspiration that there will be academic access from 2017-18.
