Dundee’s V&A museum has won two awards at this year’s Scottish Property Awards.
The new cultural and tourist attraction picked up awards for both Architectural Excellence and Development of the Year for a public building.
The judges recognised the V&A as not only an iconic new landmark for Dundee but as a development of “significant economic impact” both internationally and for the local community.
Philip Long, Director of V&A Dundee, said: “We are delighted that V&A Dundee has won two of the prestigious Scottish Property Awards, recognising the museum’s architecture and the huge achievement of everyone involved in delivering this project.
“The museum has already attracted visitors from across Scotland, the UK and the world, and we were delighted that earlier this year we reached the milestone of over 400,000 visitors.
“Our team is working hard on our next exhibition, Videogames: Design/Play/Disrupt, which opens on April 20 and is sure to attract many more people to visit and enjoy Scotland’s first design museum.”
The awards are the property industry’s largest celebration, honouring the best new commercial buildings in Scotland.
More than 700 guests gathered at Glasgow’s DoubleTree Hotel to hear the announcement of the winners.
Fiona Morton, Chair of the judging panel, said: “On behalf of the judging panel, I would like to extend congratulations to all the finalists and winners in this year’s Scottish Property Awards.
“2019 saw the greatest number of both entries and firms in the competition’s six-year history which is testament to the credibility of the programme.
“Judging in the awards is hugely rewarding for everyone involved and I would like to thank the judging panel for their valuable contribution in selecting this year’s winners.
“I hope that the winners of this year’s awards take time to celebrate their success in what has been another phenomenal year for public and commercial property in Scotland.”
