Velux invite architects to see the light with new competition
Roof window specialists Velux are inviting architects to step into the light with the launch of a new design award in tandem with the Rias.

The Velux Roof Window Award is open to anyone who has designed and/or delivered inventive and modern schemes which maximise the potential of rooflights and skylights to wash their interiors with light and air.

Split across two categories; built and unbuilt, the competition will encompass all work from the design stage through construction to completion with winning designs rewarded by a £1,500 cash prize - together with a free curved glass rooflight to inspire the next project.

This latter innovation employs clever optics to bring more daylight into a space for a given area, offering designers greater freedom to build more imaginative spaces.

Jenni Shanks of Rias Consultancy said: “The Velux Roof Window Award is a great opportunity for designers to be recognised for their innovative work. It also provides a platform for designers to put their work in the public domain and in turn raise their profile.”

The competition is open to all Scotland based designers behind work which has been specified for delivery in the country. Prospective entrants have until noon on 31 January to bring their work to the table via Velux’s dedicated competition website.

UR, I think you should not be promoting RIAS when they are under police investigation for supposed financial irregularity.

When former members of staff resign in protest at how it is being run, perhaps you should consider preparing an investigative report to show how embarrassing this is to the profession, how to install some sort of confidence in the public, and what options there are for moving forwards?
