The newly-joined B-listed buildings were among the 12 winners of awards given by the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland (RIAS), reports The Scotsman.

Fife Council also won the Scottish Government’s ‘Client of the Year’ award for their involvement in the project.

The judges said: “Bringing together museum, art galleries, meeting rooms and a café, alongside the world’s first Andrew Carnegie Library, the building is arranged around an internal ‘street’. This elegantly and legibly connects all of its facilities.”

All 12 buildings - which include the City of Glasgow College’s City Campus and Eastwood Health and Care Centre - will now be considered for the prestigious RIAS Andrew Doolan Best Building in Scotland Award, which will be announced this November.
