Scottish Home Awards Winners Announced
The best of Scottish housebuilding and design was celebrated this month at the 14th annual Scottish Home Awards, celebrating the best that the housebuilding sector has to offer.
Founded in 2007, the event has helped recognise the companies and projects that has done most to produce homes in large volume, but also in style, ranging from great new build projects through to major renovation work.
Indeed, anyone calling in Glasgow architects to design house extensions may take inspiration from the latest developments and seek to incorporate them into their own homes.
Barratt Homes and David Wilson Homes West Scotland won the Housebuilder of the Year Award for those constructing over 100 units, while Living By Robertson secured the equivalent award for those constructing fewer than 100 homes.
The Affordable Housing Development of the year for private sale was a new street in Dundee by InverTay homes, while Renfrewshire Council with Anderson Bell Christie and Engie Construction combined forces to win the best affordable development for social rent at Johnstone Castle.
Queensberry Properties won the Apartment Development of the Year prize for the Bonnington Mill development in Edinburgh, while Robertson Homes won the house of the year award for the Everett Grand at Glenburn Manor in Jackton, East Kilbride.
Those looking for great ideas on rejuvenating an existing property may be most interested in the Housing Renovation of the Year, which was awarded to The Good House Company for the transformation of Inchrye Steading at Lindore near Cupar, while Maryhill Locks in Glasgow secured the Innovation in Design prize.
Built at the waterside site in the north of the city, the Maryhill Locks project has proved very popular, with all 33 properties having now been sold.
Anyone wanting to live in a Glaswegian property of this kind may, therefore turn to local architects to see if an extension could bring some of these features to their own home.
