THE shortlists have been announced for this year’s Saltire Society Housing Design Awards.

The winners in each of the five categories, along with the recipient of the Saltire Medal, will be revealed at the annual awards ceremony, which takes place on Thursday 30 June at the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation.

This year’s event will feature a ‘Test of Time’ discussion as part of the Saltire Society’s 80th anniversary celebrations as well as marking 2016 as Scotland’s official Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design.

Judging panel guest chair Kirsty Wark said, “I am very much looking forward to chairing this year’s Housing Design Awards in such a significant year for the Saltire Society, particularly when 2016 is also the Year of Innovation, Architecture and Design in Scotland. There’s so much creativity in the housing sector in Scotland, such thoughtful forward thinking architecture and design which enhances our cityscapes and landscapes, so that our houses can be a joy to experience, either dwelling in them…or admiring them!”
