Kyle Academy Annexe, part of the overall Ayrshire Schools PPP
2008
The aspiration of the design for the new annexe is to provide the local community with the modern and adaptable additional school facility with up-to-date technology and accommodation to help the school meet the demands of the rapidly changing curriculum and national school contexts.

By providing much needed assembly and e-learning facilities, the annexe will act as a symbol for continued educational progress and civic piride as well as representing the opportunity for strengthened partnership and community learning with the local area.

The building design is simple and functional response to the original brief and provides a strong and identifiable signature feature for the school.

The new building is a composition of three interlocking circular forms – the large drum accommodates the main volume of the assembly hall, stage and associated storage, while the smaller drums either side of the main volume accommodate the new e-learning, general workbase, meeting rooms and plant room.
