Roses Architecture Awards 2005: Gareth Hoskins Architects – PR

Gareth Hoskins Architects’ Community Centre for Health, Glasgow has received a Silver Award in the ‘Best Public Building’ category in The Roses Design Awards 2005. These awards recognise design excellence in projects outside of London’s M25.

This is the third award this year in which the Community Centre for Health building has been short-listed for, and has to date, received a Commendation for ‘Best Publicly Funded Building’ at the Scottish Design Awards 2005.

Designed for Greater Glasgow NHS Primary Care Trust, the building combines medical accommodation over three storeys with a separate Day Nursery at lower level opening out into secure garden play spaces. The building not only succeeds as a landmark building within the community but also in providing a functional and enjoyable environment for staff and visitors alike.

The judging panel was made up of Belinda Irlam-Mowbray, director of RIBA NW, Heather Emery, from the RENEW, Chris Murray, director of the Academy for Sustainable Communities, Paul Spooner of English Partnerships, David Page of Page/Park, Neil Gillespie of Reiach and Hall, Penny Lewis, editor of Prospect and the chair of the panel was Jeremy Dixon of Dixon Jones.

The Roses Design Awards 2005 winners were announced on 13 October 2005 at the Roses Awards Presentation Dinner at the Palace Hotel, Manchester.

Ian Simpson : Roses Awards Winner

Ian Simpson Architects win the Roses Design Awards 2002: PR

No.1 Deansgate, the radical glass residential block by Ian Simpson Architects, picked up one of the architecture awards at this year’s Roses Design Awards at the Manchester Palace. The controversial 22-storey block marks a real departure from the traditional approach to inner city housing.

Ian Simpson said that the local council had fought hard to convince commercial operators in the area that a residential development was appropriate on the site and suggested that his glass tower might prove to be a model for inner city residential developments of the future. He rebutted critics that argue the tower is too big and that it fails to respond to its context.

“You could have brick built housing with punched windows and a zinc roof, but I think Manchester, and for that matter, Leeds and Glasgow, deserve better than that. Deansgate is not a monument to me, or the practice, there are architects that do that sort of thing. It is one of those special incidents in the city, we wanted to create something special for the city.”

Ian Simpson is not afraid of tall buildings, he is currently designing the tallest building in Birmingham. His practice recently won seventh place in the competition to design the New York World Trade Centre, against stiff extremely stiff international competition.

The Deansgate housing scheme shared the top prize for housing with Stephenson Bell Architects who designed a social housing project in Chorlton. Stephenson Bell picked up another award in the commercial architecture category for the KRO2 bar on Manchester’s Oxford Road.

This is the first year that the Roses Design Awards included an architecture category, which was judged by a separate panel, chaired by George Ferguson, President-elect of RIBA. The architecture judges, after considerable debate, decided not to give any award in the public building category.

The Roses Awards are the top awards for the creative industries outside of the M25 and have been organised to prove that there is creative life outside of London. They are organised by the Carnyx Group, which is based in Glasgow.
