Graeme Massie Architects have been awarded Scottish Design Awards in all 3 categories for which they were nominated, including the category of ‘Architect of the Year’. They were also successful in the Public Realm / Landscaping and Place Making / Master Planning categories.
The award for Public Realm / Landscaping was given for the practice’s recently completed redevelopment of Oxford’s Bonn Square, a project that was the result of an open RIBA organised design competition in 2005. The award for Place Making was made for the master planning of Reykjavik’s Old Harbour on behalf of Associated Icelandic Ports. The Old Harbour master plan is the practice’s third major master planning project in Iceland, following on from master plans for Reykjavik’s Vatnsmyri district and the centre Akureyri in the country’s north, all of which were won through open international competition.
The Scottish Design Awards is an annual event which recognises excellence in the fields of Architecture
