A member’s daughter has raised a very interesting question concerning the design influence of the Cavendish clubhouse entrance hall?
Could it have been the famous Scottish designer Charles Rennie Mackintosh, a contemporary of Dr Alister MacKenzie?
There are certainly similarities in style and the regular angular lines seen in other designs like ‘The Room de Luxe at The Willow Tearooms’ which features furniture and interior design by Mackintosh and Margaret Macdonald.
‘Young John’ was so intrigued yesterday that he just had to make a closer investigation!
Research is now taking place to try to find out more. If anyone has any information we would be very pleased to hear from you.
