External playground platforms and path networks embrace the sloping site down to the parkland below.

Creating a new primary school and early years facility on a confined site to the rear of the existing school (which would remain in operation during construction), adjacent to a steep slope at the rear, leading down to an area of land prone to flooding and dealing with the logistics of site traffic.
Working closely with North Ayrshire Council and the main contractor allowed us to develop a contemporary educational facility that satisfied the aspirations of the brief, dealing with the complexities of a challenging site, whilst exploiting the south facing views to provide a building that offers flexibility, openness, natural light and ventilation.
A contemporary school building formed through collaborative teamwork on a very challenging site that provides North Ayrshire Council with an educational facility that offers the opportunity for an open collaborative learning environment, where the children can utilise flexible interchangeable teaching spaces within the building to allow them to interact with pupils of various ages and the opportunity to learn from each other.
