THE transformation of historic stables into new homes in the city centre has scooped a prestigious design award.

Judges at the Scottish Design Awards were wowed by the Wheatley Group development of the historic Bell Street Stables.

Glasgow Times:

The Merchant City transformation was crowned as the winner in the Affordable Housing Category at the ceremony.

The development, which saw GHA and Lowther Homes convert a stable block that was once the home of working horses belonging to the city's cleansing department, also won a commendation in the Building Reuse category.

Glasgow Times:

The £7million development saw the historic B listed building transformed into 52 new flats for mid-market rent.

The awards celebrate the best architecture and design projects in Scotland and showcase the value of creativity and design.
