The painstaking restoration of Number 78 Derngate, a terraced house transformed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh in 1916, is an excellent example of creative conservation and re-use. The practice led a multi-skilled team of historians, researchers and specialist consultants in producing a work of scholarly conservation. Next to it Number 80 has been completely rebuilt to function as an entrance lobby, circulation space and museum.
