25th May 2017

Our Holyrood North Student Accommodation and Outreach Centre has been awarded two prizes at the 2017 Scottish Design Awards which took place last night at the Grand Central Hotel in Glasgow.

The awards are now into their 20th year and celebrate the best design and architecture in Scotland today with a stated mission to ‘reward top architecture firms and design agencies for their contribution to the country’s historic and contemporary design culture.’

Holyrood North is a mixed use scheme for The University of Edinburgh set within the heart of the Edinburgh Old Town. It was completed in collaboration with Oberlanders Architects and HarrisonStevens Landscape Architects to a masterplan by John Hope. Holyrood picked up the Regeneration Award and the Public Realm and Landscaping Award whilst our newly completed James Gillespie’s Campus was also shortlisted for the Education Award. We are immensely proud of these two projects which have seen us deliver large, complex buildings of very high design quality within very sensitive historic urban contexts.

The full results and photographs from the awards ceremony can be viewed here.
