Richard Murphy sees off big Scottish names to win Aberdeen comp

Richard Murphy Architects has seen off some of Scotland's best design talent to land an invited competition in Aberdeen.

The Edinburgh-based practice beat Malcolm Fraser Architects, Gareth Hoskins, 3D Design and Gordon Murray + Alan Dunlop Architects to scoop the Justice Mill Lanes contest.

Also shortlisted was Schmidt Hammer Lassen, the big-name Danish office that was recently appointed to design a new library for the University of Aberdeen.

The project, for developer North Invest, will see the construction of a mixed-use scheme made up of a third residential and a third office space. The remaining part of the project will be a hotel.

Perhaps surprisingly, the contest was organised by Brian Stewart, the former RMJM boss who rose to prominence after his work on the Scottish Parliament.
