Lochside viewing platform shortlist revealed

Five contenders remain of the 31 small and emerging Scottish practices which entered the competition to build a viewpoint at Larbert Loch

Architecture and Design Scotland has revealed the shortlisted entries in the competition to design a £30,000 viewing platform at Larbert Loch for the Forth Valley Royal Hospital, near Falkirk.

George Watt and Stewart Architects, A449, Jamie Hamilton Architect, Cameron Webster Architects with Makar and John Downie Architectural Design are battling it out to win the contest, which is aimed at small and emerging practices.

The permanent structure for patients, staff and visitors to the hospital is to be built from locally sourced Scottish timber, which the scheme’s backers, Forestry Commission Scotland and NHS Forth Valley, hope will be donated by local suppliers.

Selected from 31 Scottish hopefuls, the five finalists will work up their proposals over the next month and a winner will be named in July.
