Cass Professional Diploma graduates James Hand and Nik Klahre have won the Glasgow Institute of Architects competition to find a future for the city’s derelict Springburn Winter Gardens.

Hand and Klare said: “We are both thrilled to have been selected as winners. It’s especially meaningful for us as the result has come from a public vote.

“We look forward to helping the Springburn Winter Garden Trust work toward the future revival of the Winter Gardens and hope it will once again become a cherished and animated part of the community.”

An exhibition of the winning work and other finalists will go on display in The Lighthouse, Glasgow, from January 29 to March 11
