Garden pavilion named winner of Dundee-based architecture awards
A GARDEN pavilion has been named the Supreme winner at awards organised by the Dundee chapter of the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland.
Said judges of the winner, here: “It may be small, but Rescobie Pavillion packs a big architectural punch. This exceptional reflective space takes full advantage of its elevated site. Rescobie Pavillion is an exquisite celebration in detailing, executed to perfection.”
The pavilion is described as a “steel-framed garden pavilion perched above a stone plinth, gazing out over an easterly loch and the westerly garden of a 19th century school house in rural Angus”.
