GIA President Michael Dougall said, “The entries received by the GIA to this year’s Design Awards were of an exceptionally high standard and we were delighted to have Rab Bennetts OBE in the role of Awards Chairperson overseeing the difficult, but enjoyable, task of judging.

The high standard was demonstrated in the four nominations for the GIA Supreme Award. Four projects conceived and executed to such a level of brilliance that they can be considered amongst some of the best projects to be completed across the UK in recent years.”

Big winners of the night were Reiach and Hall Architects, who scooped not only a joint award with Michael Laird Architects for the Riverside Campus at City of Glasgow College but also the Best Use of Timber Award (supported by Wood for Good), an award in Healthcare and the beautifully engraved timber Supreme Award for Maggie’s Lanarkshire at Monklands Hospital. Judges commented that “the building feels like it is sitting on the edge of a forest” and that “the quality of the winning building would have shone through whatever the competition”.

Other deserving winners include Anderson Bell + Christie for the Shields Centre, which won an award in both Healthcare and Sustainability, with appreciation for its built form, engagement with artists and holistic approach involving the community.

The first phase of the housing at Laurieston was a triumph for Elder and Cannon Architects and Page\Park Architects, whose work at Theatre Royal was also award winning. Judges described the critical success of the Laurieston project as “the clarity and authenticity of the plan in creating new streets and courts in the traditional idiom…, instantly establishing a new neighbourhood, a genuine piece of city at a city scale”.

The award winners covered a wide range of building types and sizes, interventions and new builds, public and private, each considering its brief and context with a sensitivity and delight which was apparent to those who visited.
