Welcome to our new design exemplar webpage!
What is it?
This webpage forms part of The Scottish Government's agenda to promote good quality housing design and placemaking throughout Scotland. It is a 'live' resource database and will be expanded, over time, as more projects receive awards.
Why is it relevant?
To inspire! The exemplars have all been selected to inspire you about what has been built in Scotland and what is possible to achieve in the future. The overall aim is to make Scotland the best place that it can be.
Who can use it?
This webpage is designed for everyone. It can be of value to professionals working
in the built environment industry as well as those with little or no design experience.
Where did we find the exemplars?
As a starting point, we have selected projects from a range of national and local design awards, which have either received a commendation or an award in the last
3 years. Within time, we will consider how to expand the range of exemplars.
How to use it?
The webpage is designed to allow you to navigate your way through the
exemplars depending on what it is that you are looking for to 'be inspired'.
You can, therefore, search through the exemplars either via Local Authority areas or by selecting from the specific project types.

These logos identify which exemplars are part of the
Government design initiatives, such as the Scottish Sustainable
Communities Initiative (SSCI) and Scotland's Housing Expo.
