Best Buildings in Scotland Awards 2019

The Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland has published the winning projects of its 2019 awards, showing the best new buildings from around the country.

Councillor Neil Gardiner, Planning Convenor commented on the awards saying, “It is worth noting that two of the award winners are in Edinburgh, with the judges describing the Scottish National Blood Transfusion Service building at Heriot Watt as an ‘Open, bright, engaging and uplifting place of work’. Great architecture can extend to buildings where people interact and what better place to celebrate good design than through our voluntary blood donation service?

If you can’t make it to Heriot Watt, which is well worth a visit, you can also give blood at Lauriston Place.”
