JJ Burnet Architect - Practice Information
John James Burnet
Born in Glasgow, JJ Burnet studied at the Institute des Beaux Arts, Paris.
JJ Burnet was also responsible for the B listed Finlaystone House in Renfrewshire, Scotland. The original 14thc Finlaystone House was extended in 1900 by Sir John James Burnet. George Jardine Kidston bought the building in 1897, engaged John James Burnet, a leading Glasgow commercial architect.
A key feature of JJ Burnet's interior at Finlaystone House is a pair of pink marble pillars with a mythological beast at their base. This was John James Burnet's favourite way of ending a stair rail.The drawing room with its white marble fireplace and bow window overlooking the River Clyde, is one of the finest of Burnet's interiors.
