The new state-of-the-art school building is conceived around the strongest sustainable design principles, being one of the largest cross laminated timber education buildings delivered to date in Scotland. As a direct result, the calm and spacious aesthetic deriving from the building form delivers a light, modern, natural feeling, healthy learning and working environment for the primary and pre-school stages for the community.
The school design has been developed around a school heart concept, with a series of elegant ‘lantern’ teaching pavilions embracing the core community and assembly spaces. Each pavilion is generated around a spacious top lit collaborative activity area encircled by classroom teaching spaces. Every teaching space in turn, directly extends and reaches out into the external teaching environment.
The win was covered in the Aberdeen Evening Express.
