Planning application filed for Lenzie Moss Primary
East Dunbartonshire Council and Holmes Miller Architects have lodged plans for a replacement Lenzie Moss Primary School in north east Glasgow.

Located on land adjacent to the existing school the scheme is focused on a large central hall around which is arranged ancillary accommodation and twin teaching wings, articulated by a large over sailing canopy which shelters roof terraces and external classrooms.

In their design statement Holmes Miller noted: “The  building  forms  derives  largely  from  the  plan arrangement,  with  the  cloak  pods  and  terraces aligning as the main feature of the long elevations. The pods  create  a  ‘saw  toothed’  elevation,  which  offers opportunities  for  articulation  and  expression,  with animated,  vibrant  and  functional  external  teaching spaces occupying the enclosed space between each of the pods, creating a building of character.

“The two wings of the building can be easily read, and are expressed as individual components, linked with the central hall spaces.”

A single storey nursery element will reduce the mass of the building to the north.
Details such as copies, pods and entrance features are employed to break up the apparent mass of the build
