Burns Wynd scoops two more awards

3rd July 2014


Ayrshire Housing’s latest development at Burns Wynd, Maybole received a prestigious Saltire Society Housing Design Award today.

The award was presented to the architect Roan Rutherford by the Local Government and Planning Minister Derek Mackay at a ceremony in Edinburgh.

The award’s guest chair Eleanor Mcallister said “the panel thought that the houses had been both designed and built with a real sense of delight. This is reflected in the positive reaction of the residents we met to their new homes”.

The scheme consists of 13 wheelchair accessible houses arranged in a dramatic terrace on the edge of Maybole.

At the same ceremony, the contractor Ashleigh (Scotland) Ltd received a Good Building commendation for the quality of their work from the Chartered Institute of Building.

Last month, the scheme was judged the best affordable housing development at the Scottish Design Awards.
