Statement of Interest

Upgraded to Category B, 07.05.93. B-Group with 1 and 3 Lanark Road, 21 Lanark Road and the Popinjay Hotel. Directly opposite The Popinjay Hotel, which was also designed by Cullen in 1900, the ensemble gives the centre of Rosebank a definite sense of stylistic unity with bold massing of Tudor gables. Cullen also worked in nearby Larkhall, designing the Church Hall for St Machan's Church, (see separate list description) giving it Oriental/Art Nouveau details, a marked contrast to his use of Tudor motifs here.
