Mackintosh’s Hill House – the ‘Box’

The Hill House is one of Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s most significant works. Built between 1902 and 1904, the building has some fundamental long-term problems that require a major conservation project. 
An integral part of this process of conservation is the construction of a ‘box’ to contain and protect The Hill House. This semi-permanent enclosure provides basic shelter to the original house whilst its rain-soaked existing walls are deconstructed to allow their fabric to fully dry out. The box will also provide a remarkable visitor experience of the conservation works.
This evening presentation will be given by members of the design team for the new enclosure, giving architectural and structural engineering perspectives on the project. The talk will cover the design and construction phases – works on site are currently in progress, with steel frame erection expected to be complete by the date of the presentation.
