Herald Property Award Winners 2019

The Herald Property Awards for Scotland prides the accomplishments of Scotland’s most innovative and prosperous house builders, developers and registered social landlords. As publisher of Scotland’s most inclusive property guide, The Herald has an exclusive understanding of the new build market.

The awards offer great scope for entries across a wide range of categories to ensure that all styles of properties and developments are recognised.

We entered Carmichael House into the Best Individual New Build and Small Development. Our clients weren’t looking to build an overly large house which resulted in their build being 380 sq m. However they did request bedrooms that were fully functional with good storage and that could house a double bed. The oak frame lent itself perfectly to these requirements whilst creating instant character to the space. This was highlighted by the incorporation of endless features into the design by our Regional Architectural Designers Craig Thomson and Andrew Hunter. These included double height spaces, vaulted ceilings to the upper floor, gallery bridges from the stair to the bedrooms, external oak porches and more. The frame is not only structural but also begins to divide open plan spaces and rooms subtly. The master bedroom, for example, houses a sling frame which borders the bed and a dividing central frame featuring curved rafters and boss detail.

The Best Individual New Build and Small Development category looked for an individual property or development in any style and setting. The entries were judged on the quality of design, layout, location, features and specification and energy efficiency.

We are delighted to say that Carmichael House was successful in winning the award and the team are over the moon.
