The former home and studio of the Glasgow painter Robert Macaulay Stevenson, Robinsfield was created from the early to mid-1890s onwards by greatly extending a modest, probably early 19th-century house.

Authorship: In the 1980s Stevenson's daughter reportedly said that Mackintosh collaborated with her father on extending Robinsfield, but there is no documentary evidence for this, and the building does not resemble Mackintosh's known works. Mackintosh did however make proposals around 1910 for repainting the interior of the studio.
