Quartet of affordable housing developments shortlisted at Scottish Design Awards

The Scottish Design Awards 2022 judging panel

The final shortlist for the Scottish Design Awards 2022 has been unveiled following a hectic 48-hour judging programme.

The following entries were shortlisted in the Affordable Housing category:

With hundreds of entries to choose from, the twin panels faced the arduous task of singling out projects which stood head and shoulders above the rest, gravitating toward those schemes which address the energy crisis and lay the path for a more inclusive society.

The architecture judging panel was chaired by Allan Murray, founder of Allan Murray Design; together with David Narro, Consultant at David Narro Associates; Kirsten Lees, Managing Director at Grimshaw; Dr Penny Lewis, Architectural Studies Programme Lead at University of Dundee; Thea McMillan, Design Director at Chambers McMillan Architects and Adrian Welch, founder of the e-architect.com.

Architecture chair Allan Murray, the founder of Allan Murray Design, said: “The Scottish Design Awards is a unique platform to showcase the work of Scottish designers. The past two years have been extraordinarily difficult for many people which is why it is so positive to see how design has remained at the heart of who we are.

“The quality of the submission designs is testimony to the continuing creativity and energy of Scotland’s talent. Many submissions prompted important debates on key issues facing our professions - placemaking, energy, housing, social equality, access as well as ambition and vision.

“There is much to be positive about and celebrate and also much to be done to continue to generate debate and advocacy on the quality of environments we wish to see in the future.”

All our winners will be revealed on the evening of 29 June following a gala awards presentation at the Radisson Blu Hotel, Glasgow.
