About the Awards

The 2015 Saltire Housing Design Awards are launched in March by the Saltire Society, recognising design excellence across five categories – including a brand new ‘Landscape in Housing’ award.

The awards have been running since 1937 and are open to projects completed in Scotland over the past five years. Aside from the new ‘Landscape in Housing’ award, the four other categories are:

  • Alterations, Renovations and Extensions
  • Innovation in Housing
  • Multiple Housing Development
  • Single Dwelling

Last year’s winners included the Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games Athletes Village Meanwhile, PassivTEN, a unique study by John Gilbert Associates aimed at eliminating fuel poverty from Glasgow tenement housing scooped the Innovation in Housing award and a cash prize of £1,500 from the Scottish Government.

The Scottish Government will sponsor the ‘Innovation in Housing’ award once again in 2015. The deadline for applications is 25th March 2015

Winners in each category will be selected from a shortlist by an expert Judging Panel including this year’s Guest Chair, renowned Glasgow-based visual artist Toby Paterson.

Supported by British Council Scotland, the 2015 Student Bursary for Travel is also now open for applications from architecture students to enable them to travel abroad to work on a housing-related project. The winner of the 2015 Bursary will also be announced at the 2015 Saltire Housing Design Awards ceremony.

The awards ceremony is due to take place at the Centre for Carbon Innovation in Edinburgh on the 22nd June 2015.

Jude Barber, Convener of the Saltire Society Housing Design Awards, said:

“On behalf of the Saltire Society and the Housing Award Panel, I am delighted to launch this year’s Call for Entries for our Housing Awards and Innovation Award.

“I am also pleased to announce a new award for Landscape in Housing, which recognises the importance of space between and immediately around our homes. We hope to receive a wide and varied set of entries for the new award.

“We are particularly pleased to welcome Toby Paterson to the role of Annual Guest Chair. Toby is a prestigious artist with a strong interest in architecture and the built environment. He is well versed in the important role that housing plays in cultural life and will stimulate creative debate and discussion.

“I would encourage clients, academics, tenants’ groups, architects and housing developers to submit any recently completed projects which identify original thinking and imagination in housing design and development in Scotland.”
