The building in Mearns Street was initially conceived by Inverclyde Association for Mental Health as a training facility, growing area and offices for their social enterprise In-Work Ltd which provides training opportunities in horticulture and landscaping.
The scope expanded during discussions with Inverclyde Council to include a community centre, meeting rooms and café.
The project was funded by the Big Lottery, the council and a Scottish Regeneration Capital Grant.
It is owned and managed by the charity with unrestricted access to the community.
A spokesperson for the In-Work said:
“Many congratulations to all the design team led by Inch Architecture from everyone at In-Work.”
The Scottish Design Awards honours top architecture firms and design agencies for their contribution to the country’s historic and contemporary design culture.
