Rising rolls prompt Liberton Primary extension
City of Edinburgh Council has put forward plans for additional classroom space at Liberton Primary as part of efforts to meet the challenge presented by rising rolls across the city through to 2019.

The standalone extension is billed as a permanent solution for the school providing four additional classrooms arranged over two levels on the site of existing sport ground.

Devised by Scott Brownrigg the school takes a vernacular pitched roof form with corridor spaces utilised as ‘usable hub zones’ to maximise floorplate efficiency.

Commenting on the design the architects noted: “‘Optimum Schools’ is an approach developed by Scott Brownrigg which utilises the best available efficiencies in standardisation at component level and intelligent design.

“This means that efficiency savings can be made in cost and programme whilst ensuring that the school buildings can be individual, tailored to individual sites and settings and meet school-specific user requirements in full.”

A muted palette of fibre cement wall cladding with green accent panels is proposed for the build.

Those are some pretty GIANT children ...or is it just a REALLY small building?!
