The judges were impressed by the quality and effort of each of the six shortlisted finalists, and deciding on the final prize list prompted lively debate amongst the judges.
1st Prize: 09 - Konishi Gaffney Architects
2nd Prize: 06 - Lucid Architecture
3rd Prize: 02 - Gordon Murray Architects
Each of of our three prize winners had proposed innovative ways of using the foreshore to provide a range of uses and improve amenity. Proposed uses were sensitive to the village context and were practical as well as innovative. The judges considered Konishi Gaffney Architects propsals to provide some particularly innovative and well considered events along a new foreshore promenade, which could form a template for other rural communities to reinvigorate their communities by improving the amenity of their settlements and making them attractive as a destination for others.
The GIA would like to thank our sponsor, Community Links Scotland and our competition partner, Roseneath Peninsula West Community Development Trust for their support and collaboration on the project.
