Notes:
This project could be an alternative proposal for the House for an Art Lover competition or a speculative scheme akin to Mackintosh's Country Cottage and Town House projects. Although damaged the drawing is a fine example of Mackintosh's graphic and architectural style at the turn of the century, realised on a grander scale than he was ever able to put into practice.
