Scottish Civic Trust My Place Awards for 2016

ATLANTIC ISLANDS CENTRE ON ISLE OF LUING WINS SCOTTISH CIVIC TRUST MY PLACE AWARDS 2016

A new community facility and visitor centre, designed by Shauna Cameron Architect, on the Isle of Luing, one of Scotland’s slate islands in Argyll and Bute has won the Scottish Civic Trust My Place Awards 2016. The awards were presented on Tuesday 22nd March at The Lighthouse in Glasgow.

Atlantic Islands Centre, Isle of Luing – design by Shauna Cameron Architect:
Atlantic Islands Centre

The centre was developed to spearhead sustainable development on the island. It opened in the summer of 2015 and has quickly become established as a focal point for community life. The centre is a sustainable and inspiring example of community-led regeneration on a small island. It has greatly improved the quality of life on the island of Luing and made it a more attractive place to live, work and visit.

Judges’ comments: “The Centre is a model of community engagement, benefit and cohesion. The beautiful island of Luing and its strong community have got behind this transformative project which has provided jobs, increased tourism and given the island a focal point for meeting, talking and sharing. It is an example of civic society in action, on a small scale but with imagination, passion and, above all, determination in the face of many challenges. The Atlantic Islands Centre is a worthy winner of the My Place Awards 2016”

LOUIS WALL CROWNED CIVIC CHAMPION

Louis Wall:
Louis Wall

Louis Wall, nominated by South West Railway Adopters Gardening Group, won the Civic Champion award. Six years ago Louis noticed his local station, Stranraer, was lacking in colour and life so, with approval, he set about transforming it with imaginative and colourful plants. Since then, he has achieved plantings at 20 stations in the South West of Scotland with the involvement and support of many volunteers, local groups, communities and schools. He works long days to achieve his objectives: making the stations of South West Scotland bloom with vibrant colour.

John Pelan, Director of the Scottish Civic Trust said: “This is the seventh year of the My Place Awards. It has grown from being a modest celebration of placemaking, heritage and people to become a remarkable record of achievement and a celebration of Scotland’s heritage and places, old and new. This year, we received a record number of entries in both categories – 28 projects as well as 14 individuals put forwards as civic champions. Nominations were made by local civic trusts, community councils, heritage organisations and other voluntary groups”

Ian Gilzean, Scottish Government Chief Architect said: “The My Place Awards demonstrate the way in which well-considered buildings, places and activities can make an immense difference to life within communities. These projects provide far more than physical facilities, they are conduits for social interaction and they help to build the kind of connections that strengthen communities. They show the importance of approaches to place which consider people first.

COMMENDATIONS

HIGHLY COMMENDED

GLASGOW WOMEN’S LIBRARY Glasgow
NOMINATED BY: Glasgow Women’s Library
ARCHITECT / LEAD DESIGNER: Collective Architecture CLIENT: Glasgow Women’s Library

Project summary
The project facilitated the major refurbishment of the former Bridgeton Public Library in the heart of the East End, an area of multiple deprivation that has suffered decades of neglect and industrial decline. The library makes a significant contribution to local cultural and architectural heritage at the heart of the East End and is both sensitive to the original building and confident in its new design.

Judges’ comments
The new library is significant on both a local and national level. Locally, it has breathed new life into the old public library with a bold but sensitive design that has drawn its vision from the area’s community with a sense of responsibility and respect. Nationally, it celebrates the lives, histories and achievements of Scotland’s women through the ages. The library is welcoming, accessible and open to all, men and women. The library’s facilities and rich programme of activities are multi-faceted and it has become much more than simply a place of books; it is a vibrant and supportive place which has become a focal point in the lives of many in the community. We strongly recommend a visit.

COMMENDED

HIGH MILL OPEN GALLERY Dundee
NOMINATED BY: Friends of Dundee Heritage Trust
ARCHITECT / LEAD DESIGNER: Doug Reid, Partner, and James F Stephen Architects
CLIENT: Dundee Heritage Trust

Project summary
The gallery at Scotland’s Jute Museum @ Verdant Works is an exciting and ambitious £2.75 million project which has completed the restoration of the category A-listed Verdant Works site, securing a sustainable future for this nationally important complex. The development has almost doubled the size of the existing museum, transforming the oldest part of the building, the High Mill of 1833, into a stunning cathedral-like gallery and learning space.

Judges’ comments
The High Mill Open Gallery addition to the Verdant Works museum is an important element in the transformation of a challenging area in Dundee which has suffered from the loss of traditional industries. The spacious new gallery is functional, adaptable and very impressive in its scale and open design, filled with information and echoes of Dundee’s once proud and vibrant jute-making past.

COMMENDED

HISTORIC KILMUN Kilmun
NOMINATED BY: Historic Kilmun Management Board
ARCHITECT / LEAD DESIGNER: Icosis Architects / Stephen Newsom Architect
CLIENT: Argyll Mausoleum & St Munn’s Church, Kilmun

Project summary
The main aims of the project were to restore and conserve the historic Argyll Mausoleum and artefacts and to open it to the public in a fitting and sensitive manner. All the input has been from a small team of dedicated volunteers who not only manage the project but welcome visitors, carry out fundraising and organise community events. It is a great example of community-led regeneration and restoration.

Judges’ comments
With a modest budget, the trust and its volunteers have beautifully restored this important historic building and its associated artefacts, making them more accessible as well as raising the profile of the wonderful, atmospheric location. The work has been carried out with great care and attention to detail and we were particularly enchanted with the tiny but beautiful visitor centre. The volunteers have successfully put this architectural jewel back on the map and their work is to be commended.

COMMENDED

HUMBIE HUB Humbie
NOMINATED BY: Haddington and District Amenity Society
ARCHITECT / LEAD DESIGNER: Nicola Hall, Director, Lee Boyd
CLIENT: Patrick and Linda Flockhart

Project summary
The Humbie Hub is the central focus for the village of Humbie community and has met with resounding success. The shop and post office have been transformed beyond recognition and new accommodation has been created for local businesses one of which provides high speed broadband for the community. In a short time, the Hub has become a favoured venue for outings for coffee or a light lunch, drawing visitors from all over the county.

Judges’ comments
Facing many challenges, the owners have, with the full support and involvement of the community from this small rural settlement in East Lothian, created a new, vibrant and attractive facility for both residents and visitors to enjoy local produce, beautiful scenery and a warm and welcoming presence. The Hub has brought people together in new and unexpected ways and offers a template to inspire other rural communities.

SPECIAL AWARD

Project of national significance

DUMFRIES HOUSE ESTATE
NOMINATED BY: Architectural Heritage Society of Scotland
ARCHITECT / LEAD DESIGNER: multiple contributors
CLIENT: The Great Steward of Scotland’s Dumfries House Trust

Project summary
The estate is a fantastic example of successful heritage-led regeneration in Scotland extending across architecture, interiors, collections, landscape, education/training and activities. The project uses heritage as a vehicle in a bold and vigorous campaign to change things for a depressed local community with high levels of unemployment. Tourists and local visitors enjoy the landscape free of charge while other facilities generate profit to make the estate sustainable in the long term.

Judges’ comments
We were very keen to recognise the national significance of this superb and ongoing restoration project. The quality throughout is extraordinarily high, from conservation of furniture and artefacts to the restoration and reconstruction of buildings, monuments and gardens. The intervention of His Royal Highness, The Prince Charles, Duke of Rothesay has been key to the stunning transformation of the house and estate which have been saved for the nation.

Scottish Civic Trust My Place Awards

The Scottish Civic Trust My Place Awards scheme is unique in Scotland as it is a national celebration of good local design and conservation as nominated and evaluated by local people. It is not an industry award.

Its aim is to identify projects or buildings that have had a positive impact in a local neighbourhood and have delivered positive benefits to that community. Entries in all categories will be assessed on their architectural, heritage and/or place making benefits.

The Scottish Civic Trust My Place Awards are supported by the Scottish Government.

The awards were established in 2010.

An Cridhe is winner of My Place Awards 2013

Duncan Campbell is Civic Champion

An Cridhe (pronounced ‘an creeya’), a new community centre on the Isle of Coll in Argyll and Bute, has won the top prize in the Scottish Civic Trust My Place Awards. Also announced was the winner of the My Place Awards Civic Champion 2013 – Duncan Campbell. Duncan was nominated by Colinton Conservation Trust and Colinton Amenity Association for his outstanding contribution to the promotion and protection of the heritage of Colinton in Edinburgh.

The Awards were presented by Derek Mackay, Planning Minister for Scotland on Thursday 28 March 2013 at The Lighthouse, Glasgow.

The event was run by John Pelan with awards read out and commented on by Alistair Scott, Director, Smith Scott Mullan Associates.

John Mark Di Ciacca then gave an impassioned speech about the winning building, focusing on its community layering and heart. The architectural style was described as quiet, the focus was on how the building could be used for a myriad of purposes, the reception becomes a bar at night, the hall can take badminton by day and dancing at night, showers and bunks are freely available for guests to the island, the building is the heart (translation from Gaelic of the building title) of the community, with the locals having sourced funding and worked closely with the architect. I would have liked to have heard a little more about the architectural manoeuvres (for example, what uses pushed and pulled the precise plan dimensions of the main hall, or why is the interior arch section of the hall not expressed in the gable?) but one came away with the distinct impression that the focus was on a clever multifunctional layering to allow a myriad of community uses to be facilitated in the building. the architecture is indeed quiet.

About Hunter Reid, he said: “Hunter has had a huge impact on many different communities and on a national level, improving the quality of housing, leading projects to restore historic buildings, and inspiring local people to get involved to improve their own environment.” Over eight years of work has resulted in a modern public hall, café, 10,000 square feet of office space, two recording studios, a nursery for 40 children, meeting rooms, and heritage space, all wrapped around an outdoor courtyard. The project mixes sensitive restoration with contemporary design, using dynamic building regeneration, sustainable uses, and a well-defined business plan, to ensure that the Halls again fulfil their original purpose as the beating heart of Maryhill’s community.

19 projects in total were submitted. 5 nominations were received for the Civic Champion category. The winner and commendations were announced on Tuesday 27 March by Derek Mackay, Minister for Local Government and Planning at The Lighthouse, Glasgow.

Derek Mackay, MSP: These Awards show the way good design can bring real benefits to communities and have a positive impact on quality of life. Our best new architecture and places also help to reinforce local and national cultural identity and support a dynamic image of Scotland abroad.”

Angus Kerr, SCT Trustee and Chair of the judging panel: “The Scottish Civic Trust Awards go from strength to strength. Projects across Scotland have all competed to win this prestigious award. The standard of entries was exceptionally high and evidence of the pride that people have in their cities, towns and villages.

Scottish Civic Trust PhotoArch competition 2012

Scotland’s top young photographers snap up prizes

Parris Wilson (aged 11) and Megan Robertson (aged 14) have won the Scottish Civic Trust PhotoArch competition 2012. Their winning photos were chosen from over 630 entries submitted by primary and secondary schools across Scotland. Prizes and certificates for the winning, commended and highly commended entries were presented by Derek Mackay MSP, Minister for Local Government and Planning at a special ceremony on Tuesday 27th March at The Lighthouse, Glasgow.

Parris and Megan’s photographs, along with all the entries, will be on view to the public for four weeks at The Lighthouse, before going forward to represent Scotland at the International Heritage Photographic Experience exhibition in more than 40 countries.

PhotoArch encourages young people to take an interest in buildings, archaeology and heritage. Sites under the lens have included everything from atmospheric ancient ruins to ultra-modern flats, spanning castles, schools, homes, shops, churches and factories, to name a few.

The judges though that Parris’ shot of her school’s boiler house, silhouetted against the sky was bold and unusual. Parris said: “I didn’t notice the cross shape until I was showing my photography to my teacher, who noticed it. I just thought I would photograph the chimney at school. I didn’t expect to win!”

PhotoArch, which began in 2004, expanded last year to allow entries from secondary schools. Megan, a pupil at Mackie Academy in Aberdeenshire, photographed a stairwell in Aberdeen University and impressed the judges with her striking composition. She said: “I was having a little wander in old Aberdeen and when I saw this spiral staircase I wanted to go up it but I wasn’t allowed, so I had to think of a different way to take the picture.” She added “I want to be a photographer now and on car journeys I keep seeing buildings and thinking they would make a good picture.”

The judges for PhotoArch 2012 were Ruth Parsons, Chief Executive of Historic Scotland; Ray Entwistle, Chair of the Scottish Civic Trust; Robin McClory, Director at ADF Architects; and Julia Horton, journalist for the Times Educational Supplement Scotland.

Ruth Parsons, Chief Executive of Historic Scotland, said;
“The breadth of imagination shown by the entrants has been exceptional. The PhotoArch competition clearly brings out the very best in our young people, inspiring remarkable creativity and offering new perspectives and new interpretations on buildings and monuments that have a special place in our communities.”

Ray Entwistle, Chair of the Scottish Civic Trust, said;
“The PhotoArch competition is a great way to get children thinking about the places and spaces that surround them. Once again, we had many excellent entries from pupils of all ages, showing originality, inventiveness and an eye for detail. PhotoArch goes from strength to strength with a record number of entries this year and submissions from both primary and secondary schools.”

PhotoArch is supported by Historic Scotland.

PhotoArch is also supported by Architecture + Design Scotland, ADF Architects, Holmes Miller, Glasgow Institute of Architects, Morgan McDonnell Architecture Ltd.

The building, designed by Elder and Cannon Architects, is an exceptional example of the sensitive re-use of an existing building alongside innovative and striking new architecture. The creation of Shettleston Housing Association’s offices involved the restoration of the Cooperative Hall, an architecturally significant building within Shettleston, and a new-build extension. The project provides a base where Shettleston Housing Association can effectively work and serve the local community. The project was nominated for the My Place Awards by Dennistoun Conservation Society.

The winner of the new Scottish Civic Trust Civic Champion Award is Ron Smith, nominated by Linlithgow Civic Trust for his tireless and unstinting work in the Linlithgow community, helping to preserve and improve the built environment.

The judges for the awards were: Scottish Civic Trustees Roland Kennedy, Angus Kerr and Alistair Scott; Fiona Sinclair, President of the Glasgow Institute of Architects; and Isobel Leckie from The Causey Development Trust. Nominations were received from across Scotland by local civic societies, preservation trusts and other bodies affiliated to the Scottish Civic Trust, which provides leadership in the protection and development of Scotland’s built environment.

Culture Minister Fiona Hyslop said: “Scottish Ministers are very pleased to support the Scottish Civic Trust’s My Place Awards. We believe that they have a special value in the way they promote the importance of a far greater community focus in development”.

Speaking on behalf of the judging panel, Roland Kennedy said of the project: “Shettleston Housing Association is a worthy winner of this year’s Scottish Civic Trust My Place Awards. This is an excellent project which will act as a beacon and a driver for investment allowing the Association to serve the local community. Congratulations also to Ron Smith on winning the inaugural Civic Champion Award. His contribution to civic society in his local Linlithgow community is exemplary”.
