Daily Record Building

  • Address: 20-26 Renfield Lane Glasgow G2 5AT

Daily-record-995

This hidden treasure is tucked away down Renfield Lane. The Daily Record Building was designed by Mackintosh in 1901 to house the Scottish newspaper, the Daily Record. You could easily be forgiven for passing it by completely, as the street’s so narrow, unless you’re heading for the vegan Stereo Café/Bar which is on the ground floor.

Mackintosh wanted to maximize light in the poorly-lit lane and adopted a striking use of colour on the exterior, combining yellow sculpted sandstone with blue and white glazed reflective bricks. Mackintosh’s classic motifs are all here, as well as the figurative Tree of Life, created by variations in the brickwork reaching skywards. 

Completed in 1904, the lower floors were used for newspaper production and the upper floors for offices.

The Stereo Café/Bar, open from noon daily, enables visitors to sit & savour this piece of Mackintosh history. The rest of the building is not open to the public.
