‘The coffee table treatment gives [these classic buildings] added wow factor’ – Scottish Homes & Interiors

Glasgow has a spectacular array of buildings and is internationally renowned for its history of architectural innovation, design excellence and unique brand of urban glamour, both cosmopolitan and gritty. But unlike other world-class cities – London, Paris, New York among them – until now there has been no publication to showcase the interiors of Glasgow’s built heritage.
This book offers a glimpse into a selection of Glasgow’s most impressive historic interiors. Featuring 33 of the city’s most alluring buildings – both public and private – Glasgow Interiors tells the story of the city’s built heritage over the past 150 years. 
From a dramatic Victorian swimming bath and a glittering art deco restaurant to intricately detailed art nouveau warehouses and imposing Edwardian townhouses in the city’s West End, this book demonstrates the extraordinary wealth of interiors that lie behind the façades of Glasgow’s buildings.
Helen Kendrick came to Glasgow in 2004 to work on the conservation of Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s tearoom interiors collection. She spent the next decade working in Glasgow’s architecture and heritage world which led her into some of its most interesting historic interiors, both public and private. She has curated a number of exhibitions and is a regular contributor to the media on issues regarding Glasgow’s heritage. She is Glasgow’s representative for international committee the Reseau Art Nouveau Network, dedicated to promoting Art Nouveau heritage across the world.
