In 1901 the Zeitschrift fur Innendekoration organised a competition for the design and decoration of a House for a Lover of Art. A competition to design a house for the new age, Mackintosh failed to submit the complete designs required, although he was awarded a special prize of 600 Marks.

Mackintosh’s designs were published in 1902 by Alexander Koch of Darmstadt, each of the fourteen plates were framed and exhibited by Koch at the International Exhibition of Decorative Art at Turin 1902.

This is the only substantial publication of his work to appear in Mackintosh’s lifetime. The designs were used as a blueprint for the House for an Art Lover which was built in Glasgow in 1996.
