St John's Primary School

St John's Primary School
2019

St John’s primary school responds primarily to its context and its education function.  The school is deliberately understated reacting to its residential setting in relation to siting, scale and massing, materiality and fenestration/pattern which are appropriate for this area of Edinburgh.  High quality white precast features at the entrances signal the school and nursery entrances, provide a welcoming and inviting approach to the school and indicate a civic presence in the street.

The school has been orientated to enjoy magnificent views towards Arthur’s Seat from the playgrounds and from the first floor corridor.  Internally the plan reinterprets the SFT pilot primary school which has been adapted to meet the education client demands, with innovative separate break out areas and cosy atmospheres which promote the curriculum delivery and wellbeing of its occupants.
