The regeneration of the former Carnegie Library in Coatbridge has been recognised at the Scottish Awards for Quality in Planning.
The red sandstone beaux arts-style building won an award in the “place” category.
North Lanarkshire Council and Clyde Valley Housing Association (CVHA) worked together to transform the building with a development of 12 flats.
The award was presented to CVHA by Kevin Stewart, minister for local government, housing and planning, at a ceremony in Edinburgh.
Councillor Harry Curran said: “Thanks to sympathetic design and planning, this historic building has been transformed and given a new life as well as bringing new homes into the town centre.
“I congratulate everyone involved in this major project on receiving this prestigious award and providing modern, quality homes for local people within the town centre.”
