Charles Rennie Mackintosh – Oak Room

Almost 50 years since it was last seen, the Oak Room – the largest Charles Rennie Mackintosh interior for Miss Cranston’s Ingram Street Tearooms in Glasgow – was conserved, restored and displayed as a centrepiece of V&A Dundee’s Scottish Design Galleries when the museum opened to the public in 2018.

V&A Dundee asked us to document the process from very early on when the 600 pieces were being assembled during a trial hang in a converted church on the outskirts of Edinburgh. We followed the project for 2 years to help reveal how a major lost work by Scotland’s most famous designer was brought back to life more than 100 years later.
