Saltire Awards 2006 Winners

Awarded

Three Seton Mains, Longniddry;
Paterson Architects:
For Mr and Mrs N Paterson
Built by John A Smith and Son
Contemporary house design drawing its simplicity from the precedent of agricultural buildings
Very simple but very elegant and confident response to providing a new home on a tight sight on the country edge of the village. The conceptional approach is carried through to all parts of the design externally, internally – detailing and construction with rigour. A clear and strong award winner which at the end of the day we felt displayed architectural confidence – without arrogance – often a difficult thing to muster!

Signal Station House, North Queensferry;
ICOSIS Architects;
For Miller/Sheehan
Built by Hutton and Read
Renovation and extension of a B listed Ex Ministry of Defence structure on a very prominent site to create a family home. The extension is simply, planned massed and detailed to create rooms which are well proportioned and enjoy the magnificent aspect. The house is detailed in a crisp clean confident way which compliments the architecture of the signal tower. The whole composition manages to appear ‘of a piece’ and the existing structure is not compromised by it conversion.

Highly Commended

Housing at Cramond, Phase 1, Edinburgh;
Richard Murphy Architects:
For AMA (New Town) Limited
Built by AMA Construction Limited
New housing which eschews standard sub-urban layouts and instead creates shared space between dwellings.
A model for creating places with the layout of high value individual homes. The architecture is restrained but characterful in the context of the understood housing market. The interior spaces are well proportioned and well built and detailed.

Paragon, Glasgow
CZWG Architects:
For Cruden Estates
Built by Cruden Building and Renewals
Characterful and distinctive new housing which creates a variety of spaces within one scheme. A well handled composition of varying scales and volumes which marks a departure from the late modernist norm which has tended to become the prominent language of new developer apartments within the city.

White Cottage, Ballintuim:
Chrichton Wood Architects;
For Sheila Bennett
Built by Horton and Sons
Spatially exciting and imaginative conversion of existing rural buildings. Clever interventions into what was a really rather non-descript building create a home which is at once architecturally dramatic but at the same time a relaxed, interesting and liveable home. The details and re-interpretation of the dormer window are well executed.

Commended

10a Circus Lane, Edinburgh;
Richard Murphy Architects;
For Brian and Lesley Knox
Built by Inscape Joinery
Ingeniously planned and sectionally organised new house on a tight and sensitive New Town site.
Sensitive insertion into an existing mews to provide a new home which exploits the section to the maximum for the accommodation. It is understood that the realisation of this project involved not a little amount of work in the planning process – despite its programme to provide a house in the city – which will be sustainable.

Regent Terrace Mews, Edinburgh;
Richard Murphy Architects;
For Dunton Property Trust
Built by Inscape Joinery
New mews house which creates attractive living spaces on a tight site.
Inventive and practical design in a compact space. Where (Richard’s) the ‘architecture of the mews’ has been developed so that the occupant of the house can feel part of the mews, enjoying space and at the same time a sense of privacy.

The Holm, Orchardton;
Crallan and Winstanley Architects
for Will and Pheobe Marshall
Built by Galloway Timbers Limited
A delightful light and spacious new home and workspace for a potter.
Clear and rationally designed – a contemporary agri-rural architecture; appropriate to its context. The building incorporates an excellent inside/ outside relationship.

Friary Court, Glasgow;
Page and Park
For Miller Homes
Built by Miller Homes
Distinctive new housing that creates a new and special space in the city. The simpliciaty of the elevations and the external massing approach were considered highly appropriate for the setting of the church. The external space the housing created and shared was restful and had its own character.

Seabank, Girvan:
R Rutherford Austin- Smith:Lord LLP
For Ayrshire Housing
Built by Barr Construction
New housing for those with special housing needs integrated sensitively into a small town Conservation area.
Very much special, Special Needs Housing, which at a townscape level uses an appropriate scale and architectural language – contributing to its location in Girvan; whilst from the perspective of the residents provides spacious and airy accommodation

Dean Bank Lane, Edinburgh;
Richard Murphy Architects;
For Kilmartin Properties
Built by Rutland Design and Build
New apartment block that cleverly exploits its waterside location and makes the most amenity of difficult site levels.
Bold new housing at a relatively density for the site. The elevations of the building enliven the riverside and contribute to the lane whilst the development brings mixed use – in the form of housing to a largely commercial location.

Special Mentions

Burnett House, Banchory:
G Devici, Chartered Architect:
For Mr and Mrs Burnett
Built by Banchory Contractors
A super insulated, very air tight family house in rural setting aiming for zero carbon emissions – submitted as a single house but understood to be a prototype for potentially more homes.

Glasgow Harbour
RMJM;
For Park Lane
Built by Dawn Construction
Strong form and massing – well handled – a development which provides dense but attractive housing in the city – however for Saltire the issues of Harbour as a sustainable community are yet to be established in the context of infrastructure and future connection.

Anchor Mill, Paisley,
James F Stephen, Architects;
For Prince of Wales Pheonix trust
Built by Keir Scotland Conversion of a landmark historic building for contemporary housing – which in its self is to be applauded. We felt that terms of grasping the implications of this there was need for the development of shared spaces and non-residential uses in the building.
