Multiple developments in Edinburgh have been named as finalists in the 2020 Scottish Home Awards.

A wide variety of projects across the city have been shortlisted, ranging from "Baird's Close One" by Bowmer+Kirkland on King's Stables Road in the City Centre to "Broomview" by Keepmoat Homes in the suburban neighbourhood of Sighthill. Nominees also include bespoke projects such as a steading conversion in the suburb of Brunstane designed by Iain Gaul Architects.

"Pavilion" - a luxury development of 16 flats in Edinburgh's Inverleith neighbourhood by AMA Homes designed by award-winning local practice Richard Murphy Architects -  is among the nominees for Apartment Development of the Year.

"The interest created and the pre-sale achieved is a testament to the quality and our commitment to this very important site," said Behnam Afshar, Director of AMA Homes. "It is essential to emphasise the importance of these valuable sites by creating a design and a build programme that will match the location. I invite you to think that such buildings will perhaps become the next generation of our 'listed buildings' in Edinburgh."

Several affordable housing projects in the capital have also been shortlisted, including "Foxglove Close" by Hillcrest Homes, "The Green" by Places for People,  and "Vision" by Cruden Homes, along with three social housing developments by the City of Edinburgh Council.

The winners of the Scottish Homes Awards will be announced later this year.
