As the blog is new it seems apt to kick it off writing about something new within The Lighthouse, namely the Tower Room.
The Tower Room is our newest events space, though perhaps ironically, it’s actually the oldest room in the building! The Tower Room is part of the original building, commissioned by The Herald and designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh when he worked for Honeyman and Keppie. The Tower Room is located at the bottom of the Mackintosh tower and would originally have been the office of one of the editors of the newspaper. As the building is currently laid out the room is located just off Gallery One, on the first floor of the building.
The team recognised the demand for small meeting spaces that were budget friendly but still with the same great location and features that our clients have come to expect from events at The Lighthouse. The Tower Room had previously only been used for internal small meetings but showed lots of potential and was duly renovated to make it suitable for hire.
As you might expect from the older section of the building the tower room has beautifully aged sandstone walls, wooden flooring and large windows with traditional panes. Although it’s a small meeting space these features, combined with the rounded walls and high ceiling, give the room an airy feel. It can accommodate up to 14 boardroom style or 10 people cabaret style.
The room is ideally suited for creative meetings or could also offer a spot for job interviews, brainstorming sessions or simply an inspiring space to work from for the day! The Tower Room can be set up in a number of different ways and comes with wi-fi and an LCD Screen.
If you’re planning a small meeting or event and would like to set up a viewing of the Tower Room then please contact our events team.
