We are delighted to share the news, that the Edinburgh Printmakers refurbishment project has been shortlisted for three different awards already this year!

⭐️ The Architects Journal has shortlisted it in the Cultural Project category.
⭐️ The Brick Development Association (BDA) shortlisted it in its Refurbishment category.
