Hill House Fabric Repairs

Client: The National Trust for Scotland


The A Listed Hill House is the most important 20th century house in Scotland and was designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, Scotland’s most famous 20th century architect.

The house has suffered throughout its history however from water ingress through its cement rendered walls which has caused extensive outbreaks of rot and is causing its stone and brick fabric to decay.

LDN have been appointed by the NTS to lead a team of experts, including representatives of the Building Research Establishment and the Mackintosh Environmental Architecture Research Unit, to investigate the causes of the problems and identify long-term solutions that will cure them.

The appointment is based on our experience of addressing similar issues in relation to other A Listed historic buildings including the modern movement Craigsbank Church, Newhailes for the NTS and Stanley Mills for Historic Scotland.
