1 New Park Square wins Architects Journal Award

1 New Park Square was praised by judges as a radical and appealing approach to the post-Covid workspace, demonstrating deep thinking around public spaces and ‘how to improve and maximise the experience for everyone’.

1 New Park Square is the first in a series of new offices designed by AHMM for Parabola's development of the Southern Part of Edinburgh Park. 1 New Park Square frames the new civic square (designed by Gross.Max) and features an impressive array of social spaces, including a café, restaurant, music venue and a 150-seat auditorium with flexible office spaces and generous floor-to-ceiling heights intended to improve daylighting, thermal comfort and reduce energy use over time.

Judges said 1 New Park Square was ‘doing so much good that others are completely missing’, thanks to the ambition of its client and architect. One said the connection between the building’s interior and the outdoor and green spaces ‘was really beautifully done’ with a ‘manner and simplicity that made it easy for me to connect’.

The decision to embrace an informal rather than formal reception area configuration and the all-encompassing focus on wellbeing throughout were also acclaimed.
