Scotland RIBA Regional Award 2019

Collective Architecture (originally  Malcolm Fraser Architects) for City of Edinburgh Council and Collective Arts
Contract value: £4m
GIA: 491m²
Cost per m²: £8,146

Malcolm Fraser Architects initially won the invited competition for the project in 2014, secured planning permission and progressed detailed design. The project moved to Collective Architecture during 2015 and the practice saw it through to completion in 2018.  A shared vision for this arts complex has driven the design from inception, producing a number of bold, contemporary interventions which achieve a unifying functional coherence with the sensitively restored historic buildings on this site of national significance.  

Emerging Architect Award, Emma Fairhurst, sponsored by Saint Gobain
