2005: Civic Trust Awards - Mention
This distinctive yet subtle design sits low within Lerwick's civic park. It acts as a store and a meeting space as well as providing ancillary facilities. It is frequently used by different groups accessing the park and grounds.
The approach was that of providing a simple, functional design using high quality materials of natural slate and dressed timber cladding. This resulted in a restrained building which has an architectural quality in its simplicity.
