A light and spacious environment for learning

Walters & Cohen Architects

Contract value: Undisclosed

 

This 280-pupil school is designed to deliver the new Scottish Curriculum for Excellence, to be a beacon in its community and provide a quality learning environment. The canal-side location was the inspiration for construction parallel to the water with semi-open plan learning spaces and double-height glazing to provide views and a light and spacious environment.
