We enjoyed a double awards success at a ceremony held yesterday evening at the National Galleries of Scotland, with our Simon Square project picking up a RIAS Award 2024 and the RIAS & Scottish Forestry/Confor Timber Award 2024.

We’re delighted for our client Seven Hills Investment Ltd, as well as the team of consultants and contractors who we collaborated with on the project, including True Build, Egoin, Elliott & Company, David Adamson Group, Harley Haddow and the Robin Mackenzie Partnership.

The judges citation noted:

''This modest housing development unlocks the potential of an old builder’s yard, successfully fitting into the tight and eclectic urban grain of Edinburgh’s Southside. Fraser/Livingstone Architects’ bespoke and tailored response is a clever re-examination of the tenement vernacular, and creates a sustainable and healthy set of spaces for residents. With exposed timber surfaces and breathable construction, the judges praised it for setting a new benchmark for sustainable Scottish tenement architecture.''

We’d like to thank the judges and all those involved at the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland and pass on our congratulations to the teams involved in the other winning and shortlisted projects.
