It’s such an honour for Cuddymoss to be shortlisted for the prestigious RIAS Doolan Award for Scotland’s best new building. We are delighted for our client, the rest of the design team, main contractor and everyone else who collaborated on the project.

This is the 21st year of the RIAS Doolan Award, which carries a £10,000 prize. The award was established in 2002 to celebrate Scotland’s best new building and named after its patron, architect and developer Andrew Doolan, who died in 2004.

The jury for the 2023 award is chaired by RSHP senior partner Tracy Meller, Wallpaper* architecture editor Ellie Stathaki, and RIAS president Chris Stewart.

‘We have a tough job to select a winner from the four outstanding buildings on this year’s Doolan Award shortlist,’ said Meller. ‘Whether unlocking a tricky urban challenge or doing justice to a remarkable rural setting, each has a superb relationship with its context. Their clients’ briefs could not be more different, and yet each building demonstrates exceptional imagination, skill and flair.’

The winner will be announced on 30 November.
