Visit 78 Derngate to see the painstakingly restored interiors of the only house in England designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh.
The remodel and interior design of 78 Derngate in Northampton was the last major commission of renowned architect Charles Rennie Mackintosh. Born in Glasgow in 1868 and responsible for landmark buildings including the city’s Art School, Mackintosh was appointed in 1916 by engineer and patron W.J. Bassett-Lowke to transform the 19th century brick terrace.
Now a Grade II* listed building, 78 Derngate is the only place in the world where visitors can see Mackintosh’s late architectural and interior style in its original setting. The house was meticulously restored in the early 2000s, with the neighbouring property converted into a visitor centre and exhibition space at a cost of £1.4 million.
This multi award-winning visitor attraction also boasts The Dining Room restaurant and a shop stocked with contemporary crafts, designs, artworks and Mackintosh-inspired gifts.
