McKeown Alexander also picked up a commendation for its Terrace and Object Building, Homes for the Future, Lanark Street, Glasgow.
And Law and Dunbar Naismith was commended for Stanley Mills near Perth.
McKeown Alexander's scheme for Graham Square was for the Molendinar Park Housing Association - winner of the RIBA's Client of the Year award, announced alongside the Stirling Prize.
Director of McKeown Alexander Ian Alexander said the project had 'put down a new marker for the standard of housing in Scotland'.
Judges for the 2001 awards included David Page, Roan Rutherford and director and chief architect of the Scottish Executive, Dr John Gibbons.
The Saltire Society Housing Design Awards were established in 1936 to encourage building design that reflects the Scottish environment - both urban and rural - and respects design tradition.
