ARPL win Glasgow Institute of Architects Best Small Practice Award
In this years Design Awards the Glasgow Institute of Architects have recognised ARPL Architects with the Best Small Practice Award for 2016.
The Award, given only every five years, recognises the best portfolio of work submitted by smaller practices base in the GIA region. The GIA is the biggest of the six Chapters of the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland stretching from the Western Isles to Dumfries and Galloway.
With our recently completed work at the Theatre Royal, Dumfries, Belleisle Golf Club, Ballymun housing in Dublin and our forthcoming Kirkcudbright Galleries project the judges welcomed a strong body of significant work delivered from our Ayr base.
Our design is both innovative and sympathetic to the immediate and the broader environment in which they are constructed with an emphasis on sustainability. Each project embraces the unique nature of the client’s needs and the site.
From our base in Ayr the practice carries out projects over a wide geographical area from the Orkneys and the Western Isles to Ireland. Our project experience covers the fields of housing, churches, schools, commercial projects, private houses, community and arts buildings. We have developed particular expertise in contemporary sustainable design, specialist conservation works and design for historically sensitive environments.
Our work has received wide recognition through numerous design and environmental awards presented over the years for our new build and conservation works. Regular success in design competitions adds to the practice portfolio.
