Scope and Content View of Diploma Studios, Glasgow School of Art, No 167 Renfrew Street, Glasgow This attic-storey studio of Glasgow School of Art, photographed in 1910 by Harry Bedford Lemere, was, along with his two studies of the library, one of three photographs of the interior of the School to be published in 'The Studio' magazine in 1929. This room is not the refectory as Lemere records but an attic studio. The walls are of untreated brick and the huge window, divided into square grids, allows north-light to flood the room. The photograph shows the tables and chairs set out for needlework. The second phase of the building of the Glasgow School of Art, designed in 1907-9 by the architect, Charles Rennie Mackintosh, included the addition of this second-floor attic studio designed for professors, advanced students or artists visiting the city.
