This year 2 awards are up for grabs. The Building of the Year Award 2012, kindly sponsored by Russwood Limited and The Best Use of Wood Award 2012, kindly sponsored by the Forestry Commission Scotland & Wood For Good.
This was The SSA’s 3rd year of the awards and we are delighted to report that the number of entries is up substantially on last year with 16 nominations for the Building of the Year Award and 12 nominations for the Best Use of Wood Award.
The Judging was carried out on the 24th August by RIAS President Sholto Humphries, Jack Hugh of the RIAS and our the SSA President Stephen Lynas, involving a long day of travel around all of the entries from Croftamie to Falkirk and beyond.
The Winner of this year’s Stirling Society of Architects Building of the Year Award for 2012 is the Hillpark House, Bridge of Allan by Bobby Halliday Architects for Mr & Mrs Crosbie.
The remodelling of this substantial family home has created a bold, contemporary feature entrance leading to an elegant entrance hall with a timber curved stair and engineered timber flooring.
The Winner of this year’s Stirling Society of Architects Best Use of Wood Award for 2012 along with a £500 prize fund is the Cedar Studio, Croftamie by Architeco for Architeco
A modest and discreet garden studio combines recycled railway sleepers, softwood cladding and redwood shingles to the roof. Self-built to a very tight £5000 budget.
Congratulations to all the winners and our thanks to all the entrants, our sponsors Russwood Limited, Forestry Commission Scotland and Wood for Good and most importantly to your clients who allow, through good design, to realise their aspirations.
