Alan Dunlop secures East Park commission
November 15 2013
The project follows on from Dunlop’s previous work delivering Hazelwood Primary and will entail creation of 1,000sq/m of residential space, respite accommodation and classrooms for children with learning difficulties.
This space will take the form of three ‘uncluttered’ buildings of paired detailing arranged around a ‘town square’, accessible from a new pedestrian entrance from Maryhill Road.
Commenting on the work Dunlop said: “It’s a challenging and ambitious project. By focussing on international standards of best practice, my clients intend to create a centre of excellence for the teaching and residential care of children and young people with acute needs and encourage free movement and sense of independence while ensuring a safe and secure learning and living space.
“The placing of class rooms to the north of the existing garden has opened up the possibility of a south facing, secure and pleasurable environment for pupils and teachers with easy access to green space.”
Work is scheduled to start on the scheme in June 2014 following submission of a planning application in February.
New studios and classrooms are single storey, with circulation and access extrapolated from the existing school plan
Service and vehicle access has been reworked to clearly demark academic and residential environments
