ARPL success at GIA Design Awards 2014
The Glasgow Institute of Architects Annual design Awards have recognised ARPL's work at New Bridge Street in Ayr with a commendation for exemplary conservation work.
The repair and restoration of three Georgian tenements was part of the Ayr Townscape Heritage Initiative implemented by Ayr Renaissance, the regeneration company operated by South Ayrshire Council. The £1.5m project was carried out by CBC Stone, a specialist conservation contractor, and involved stonework, window and roof repairs coupled with extensive paint removal to restore the buildings back to their original design.
The work was overseen by Lynne Yuille, one of our specialist conservation accredited architects , over a fourteen month construction period.
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.
