We like to think of The Red Door Gallery as a temporary home for all the artwork and objects we are provided with - almost a stopgap on the way to their final homes, which in Scotland might just be a tenement flat. With this in mind, we constructed 'Half Way Home', a show created from Finch and Fouracre's Tenement Model Kits which have been customised by a selected group of artists.

Beth Fourace and Franki Finch are Glasgow based model makers who have created some charming and intricately detailed model kits of Scottish Tenements. These objects have become very popular with Red Door customers over the years, which sparked the idea to run a window display of customised tenements by a group of talented artists. Each tenement exudes an artists own personal style and creativity, turning it into a one off piece of art for our customers to buy and take home.

Each Tenement is lovingly customised and available to purchase in a pricing range between £35 and £75 depending on how intricate each design is. For more information on any of the tenements, please flick us an email at as we would be more than happy to help. More images of each individual tenement and display will be follow later this week.
