Designed by international design practice Ryder Architecture, The Prince & Princess of Wales Hospice (PPWH) won two awards at the Glasgow Institute of Architects (GIA) awards ceremony held on 22 November.
Flagship Projects Finalists in Prestigious Awards
Ryder Architecture has added to its list of 2020 awards nominations with further accolades for two major projects.
PPWH, the pioneering Glasgow development which is changing the face of traditional healthcare, has been shortlisted in the annual Royal Institute of Architects in Scotland (RIAS) awards. The building is one of only 18 projects to be shortlisted from an impressive 80 entries.
Meanwhile, Tombola House, the innovative Sunderland gaming headquarters, has been recognised as a finalist in the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA) north east awards.
Ronnie Graham, partner at Ryder and project director of Tombola House, said “The RIBA awards have a strong reputation for recognising excellence in the built environment with an emphasis on community impact and sustainability. Tombola House is a pioneering exemplar of office design, embodying innovative features and unique levels of finishes whilst complementing the context of the wider Sunderland Quayside. We are delighted that this fantastic project has been shortlisted for this prestigious award.”
The winners will be announced in the coming months, with regional winners going on to compete in the national final later this year.
Tombola House has won the Commercial Project of the Year (15,000-30,000sqft) in the Mixology North Awards.
