Scottish prize won by Mackintosh student

  • Comment

The inaugural Holmes Award has been won by Phil Zoechbauer from the Mackintosh School of Architecture

The Holmes Award is a new annual £500 prize open to third year students from the Strathclyde and Mackintosh schools of architecture. The award was announced by the Glasgow Institute of Architects (GIA) in May, as part of its commitment to strengthening the links between the two schools and professional practice.

The winner was Phil Zoechbauer, who attended the Mackintosh School of Architecture. His winning designs for a musicians’ retreat in the valley of Glenluce and a ‘Music Box’ performance facility in the town of Stranraer were selected by the judging panel for ‘the greatest maturity of approach and clarity of expression.’

Project 1: Glenluce Musicians’ Retreat,a facility that will allow 15 musicians to come together for a period of around six months to facilitate the making of music, liberated from the demands of everyday life.

Project 2: Stranraer Music Box,a small performance building that will act as a catalyst for the social, cultural and economic regeneration of Stranraer.
