 Scottish Design Award winners revealed
The Scottish Design Awards, held in partnership with Urban Realm, have marked a second decade of exemplary design in style with recognition for a welter of work from Reiach & Hall’s translucent Oriam sports centre to the domestic finery of Ann Nisbet’s Newhouse of Auchengree.

Heading the pack this year was Oriam, winner of the architecture Grand Prix and lauded by jury chair Parry who praised the ‘integrity, social role and beauty’ of the finished product, an accolade which sent the team on to pick up the coveted title of Practice of the Year.

The health category meanwhile was the Eastwood Health and Care Centre delivered by Hoskins Architects. On the night it was Stallan Brand who proved victorious in the affordable housing category courtesy of its ‘industrial’ swagger while Holyrood North by HarrisonStevens livened up the public realm and landscaping courtesy of its ‘Exemplary high density’.

Award arbiters were led this year by Eric Parry, founder, Eric Parry Architects who was joined by John Pelan of the Scottish Civic Trust; Andrew German, partner, Sheppard Robson and Penny Lewis, lecturer at the Scott Sutherland School of Architecture.
