    The judges said there was “a persuasive integrity” to the rigorous use of pure rectangular forms and the strictly limited palette of colour and materials.

    They said they had “succeeded in creating a calm, inviting and exceptional home”.

    The Briongos MacKinnon House

    The Briongos Mackinnon house was designed to the very specific and individualistic brief of the clients who enjoy microlight flying and own the airfield on which the house sits.

    The judges described it as “cheerfully idiosyncratic” and said it fitted in with the neighbouring semi-industrial hangar buildings.

    They said it was a “light, airy and joyful building” which was both a family home and a workspace.

    Broomlands Primary School

    The school’s most “distinctive” feature is the spiky roof, which has function of forming canopies for outdoor learning activities.

    Inside there are “flexible” teaching spaces which have direct access to external play areas and the mature landscaped grounds.

    Collective on Calton Hill

    The judges said the project on Calton Hill was the result of a “strong and highly successful collaboration” between the two clients and the design team.

    They praised the “bold, contemporary interventions” as well as the “sensitively-restored historic buildings on this site of national significance”.

    The Macallan Distillery and Visitor Experience

    Bringing Charles Rennie Mackintosh’s famous tea rooms back to life was described by the judges as a remarkable combination of restoration and new-build.

    This social housing development is an “inspired but pragmatic and affordable resolution” of a difficult, extremely steep and almost inaccessible site located in the centre of Inverness, the judges said.

    It has transformed and revitalised an all but abandoned no-go area of the city, they said.

    The new headquarters for Tollcross Housing Association was described by the judges as “a rigorously ordered and beautifully detailed solution” for a significant site.

    The open-plan office spaces are arranged as a series of rising, interconnecting volumes linked by a central sculptural staircase.

    They said the result was an “elegant and refined building”.

    V&A Dundee
