John Honeyman & Keppie designed a two-storey yellow sandstone building with tower, constructed and equipped for the teaching of a university-level medical curriculum for Queen Margaret College, Glasgow's higher-education institution for women.

Authorship: There is good evidence for Mackintosh's involvement: stylistically the architectural forms and detailing suggest his involvement; annotations on the drawings are in his hand; the architect W. S. Moyes, who later worked in Honeyman, Keppie & Mackintosh's office, stated the College was Mackintosh's design; 1 and he drew the display perspective. The building is listed as by Mackintosh in the 1924 publication Modern English Architecture. 2
