We are honoured to announce that Maryhill Locks has won an RIAS Award alongside thirteen other outstanding new Scottish buildings!

“We are delighted to have received an RIAS Award for our housing project in Maryhill. Importantly, this project was supported by the ambition of our clients coupled with our desire to improve our communities and the quality of the places within which we all live, through positive design.”

      – Ian Alexander, jmarchitects Design Director

The project presents a contemporary example of inner city, urban family living that is attractive, flexible and affordable. A range of three-bedroom and four-bedroom houses in a terraced format is designed carefully into a steeply sloping site with uninterrupted south facing views across the Kelvin Walkway.

“Maryhill Locks reinterprets the traditional terrace to create 33 flexible and sustainable homes for young professionals and families, close to Glasgow city centre. Brick enclosures at the front cleverly conceal bins and cars, a linking footpath behind the rear gardens is a safe shared space for young children to play, and a hidden allotment sits at the heart of the scheme.”

         – RIAS Judges

As winner of the RIAS Awards, Maryhill Locks will be ‘longlisted’ for the RIAS Andrew Doolan Best Building in Scotland Award.
