Gold, Silver and Bronze for gm+ad
Gordon Murray and Alan Dunlop Architects picked up a Gold, 2 Silver and a Bronze Award at the Roses Design Awards in the Palace Hotel, Manchester last night. The awards, which celebrate design excellence “beyond the M25”, were for the JKS Workshops in Clydebank and social housing at Telford Drive in Edinburgh.
The Gold was the Chairman’s Award for Architecture, one of the two top awards for architecture given on the night and it was awarded to the JKS Workshops in Clydebank. Earlier this year, the JKS workshops also won a RIBA Award and a Scottish Design Award and has been submitted for the £25,000 RIAS Andrew Doolan prize for the best building in Scotland.
Telford Drive is the first social housing project to be completed by gm+ad.
“We’re very pleased” said Alan Dunlop “particularly for our clients at Clydebank Rebuilt. They have set out a regeneration plan for the town which is firmly design led and they are now reaping the benefit in national recognition”
“For a small project like the workshops to win such a prestigious award, like the Chairman’s Award for Architecture is excellent” adds Gordon Murray “but also we’re delighted that Telford Drive is getting such recognition. Often social housing is overlooked in the big design awards but not in this case.”
