For those interested in architecture, this was Mackintosh's last public commission in Glasgow. He reversed tradition and gave the towers with conical roofs walls of glass with narrow stone mullions. Instead of spiral stairs, he used straight flights which benefited from the light which streams into them. He played off verticality of the towers with the horizontal nature of the rest of the building.
