49, Glebe Place

49, Glebe Place (1920). Chelsea, London. Charles Rennie Mackintosh (1868-1928). According to Cherry and Pevsner, this house and studio, his only London building, was harmed by ther addition of an upper floor in 1924: “The distinctive elevation has been emasculated by the upper floor added in 1924, but Macintish's austerewhite plaster ground floor remains, with the quirky feature of a continous raised band running over the end doors and below the two central windows, between which a chimney-stack once rose above the low eaves” (576).
