Mackintosh Queens Cross Church
870 Garscube Road, G20 7EL
1897 – 1899, Charles Rennie Mackintosh
This beautiful church was designed in its entirety by Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Magnificent stained glass and exceptional relief carving on wood and stonework are highlights of the interior where light and space are used to dramatic effect. It is now the headquarters of the Mackintosh Society.
The building was commissioned in 1896 and the simplicity of the design - compared with much Victorian architecture of the day - is inspiring. Mackintosh Queen's Cross looks very much as it would have done in Mackintosh's time - the magnificent stained glass blue heart window and exceptional relief carving on wood and stone are highlights of the interior. The building is a stunning venue for concerts, weddings and movie events as well.
