Aberdeen Music Hall has been given a top national award following a major £9 million transformation.
The historic city centre venue has been celebrated at the Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors (RICS) Awards Scotland in the Community Benefit category.
Judges highly commended the way in which it has helped locals through initiatives and projects such as Music Hall Babies, Young Ambassadors and the Stepping In celebrations.
It re-opened in December following a major revamp including upgrades to the staging, seating and lighting and new workspaces for performers and classes.
Since then, more than 160,000 people have passed through its doors.
Jane Spiers, chief executive of Aberdeen Performing Arts, said: “The Music Hall has been at the heart of cultural and community life for nearly 200 years and means so much to so many people.
“It’s been such a privilege for Aberdeen Performing Arts to deliver this project for the city.
“Winning this national award is a fantastic way to say thank you to everyone involved and recognises all the amazing talent and creativity in our communities in the north-east.”
The Music Hall was also shortlisted in the building conservation category but lost to the restored Mackintosh-designed Willow tea rooms in Glasgow.
Designed by Charles Rennie Mackintosh, the tea rooms reopened last summer following a £10m restoration.
RICS judges said that incredible care was taken to preserve original features and to faithfully recreate original furniture and fitments through detailed research and use of local artisans and craftsmen.
Other winning projects included the Queensferry Crossing, which took the Infrastructure category, and V&A Dundee which won the prize for Tourism and Leisure.
Elsewhere The Macallan Distillery and Visitor Experience at Charlestown of Aberlour and the West Dunbartonshire Council Dumbarton Office took home awards as well.
All category winners will go on to compete against other regional winners at the national RICS Awards Grand Final on Friday October 4 at the Royal Lancaster Hotel, London, for the chance to be crowned the overall UK winner in their respective category.
