Two Nominations For Austin-Smith:Lord At The Scottish Design Awards
Two Austin-Smith:Lord projects, the Calman Cancer Care Centre and the University of Edinburgh Noreen & Kenneth Murray Library, have been nominated for a 2013 Scottish Design Award.
The Calman Cancer Care Centre (formerly Gartnavel Royal Hospital Chapel) has been carefully conserved by the Austin-Smith:Lord team and adapted into a flagship therapy centre for the provision of free counselling and complementary therapies for cancer outpatients. The centre was recently presented with the Gold Award at the Friends of Glasgow West awards ceremony, and has been shortlisted for the 2013 RICS Scotland Awards in the Building Conservation category.
The new build University of Edinburgh Noreen and Kenneth Murray Library was recently awarded a High Commendation at the Low Carbon Building Awards. The library acts as a social hub on the King’s Building Campus and provides enhanced teaching and study environments for the college of Science and Engineering.
We look forward to hearing the results of the Scottish Design Awards at the ceremony on 30th May.
