Skye-based architects scoop two awards

Skye-based Dualchas Architects has won two architectural awards for a house in Staffin.

Last week’s annual Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland awards in Glasgow saw Cliff House onSkye recognised for its design excellence and its social and economic contribution to Scotland.

It was also one of just four projects to win a Royal Institute of British Architecture award and will go on to be considered for the Stirling Prize, the world’s most prestigious architecture award.

Project architect Daniel Bar said: “I am delighted that this design has been recognised. It was a difficult site with a tight budget and demanding brief.
“These challenges have resulted in a building which blends harmoniously into the surroundings of the island landscape.”
