Nominations now open for 2019 Saltire Society Housing Design Awards
Submissions must be received by noon on 8 March 2019
The Saltire Housing Awards are different. Rewarding innovation and advocating Scottish house building and place making for longer than any other design award in Scotland; the awards work to encourage good, affordable, adaptable and environmentally sustainable housing in Scotland.
At its best, housing can improve a community, its health and wellbeing, adding positively to not only Scotland’s architectural landscape but its social landscape.
Open to entries from owners, clients, architects, house-builders and housing developers of all shapes and sizes across Scotland, the awards seek projects that add positively to Scotland’s architectural and social landscape.
Last year’s winners included Leith Fort, an exceptional project that regenerates a historic site with a mix of midmarket and social rent housing. And Inclusive Family Home by Chambers McMillan Architects, a nondescript semi-detached bungalow in Edinburgh, renewed and recast to create an exceptional project that leveraged a modest budget to produce a truly inclusive home.

The Innovation in Housing Award, sponsored by the Scottish Government, celebrates the pioneering spirit, for projects and ideas that, including but not limited to, offer new approaches, use of new technology and innovative construction methods. The awards complement the Scottish Government’s vision for its housing policy; to encourage innovative and original projects and ideas that will promote debate and implementation.
