Better homes: 2013 Saltire Awards shortlist revealed

NORD and Rural Design named on Saltire Society Housing Design Awards shortlist

Two schemes by NORD Architecture have been named on the shortlist for the 76th annual Scottish housing awards.

Rural Design’s Turf House, which won a RIAS Award earlier this year is also shortlisted, alongside Chambers McMillan’s Ramp House in Portobello, Edinburgh.

The awards are chaired by broadcaster and journalist Lesley Riddoch alongside newly appointed convenor Jude Barber of Collective Architecture who was shortlisted for last year’s AJ emerging woman architect of the year award.

Scottish Cabinet Secretary for Minister for Housing and Welfare, Margaret Burgess MSP, will announced the award winners at a ceremony at the Lighthouse in Glasgow on the 9th September.

A student award will also be given for a graduation piece ‘designed to enhance and enrich the built environment’ with a £1,500 bursary to enable the winner to ‘pursue a research project, including international travel’.

  • One thing Margaret Burgess might like to reflect on in her speech is why there is only one actual housing scheme amongst this year's short-list. Investment in housing has been one of the big loosers in the Scottish Goverment's capital programme.
