Aberdeenshire Design Awards

We recognise that good design is important to the public and in a wider context believe that development must be of benefit to the people.

Aberdeenshire Design Awards are used to encourage the very best in design and to improve the built environment within Aberdeenshire.

The awards in 2016 introduced a number of conceptual awards to the scheme.

2016 winning schemes

The overall winner received the Ian Shepherd Award, presented this year to Coldrach by Moxon Architects Ltd for client Ms Rampton.

Coldarch

"Coldrach is an imaginative and well executed refurbishment of a derelict cottage with a deceptively simple contemporary extension to create a stylish residence."

New to this year’s scheme, all the finalists in the conceptual categories were put forward for a public vote.
