Testament to dedication of the client and intensive research by the architect
Scotland RIBA Regional Award 2019
Simpson & Brown for Willow Tea Rooms Trust
Contract value: Undisclosed
This combined restoration and new build is testament to the passion and dedication of the client and intensive research by the architect which facilitated a truly excellent quality project. The original building is a much-admired and rare example of a complete art nouveau scheme. The client bought the adjoining building, which has become a well-mannered and sensitively integrated contemporary addition providing support facilities including a shop and exhibition and education areas.
