Dollar Academy teaching wing moves on site
August 11 2014
Defined by a series of chimneys providing natural ‘stack’ ventilation, the upper level of this pavilion is conceived as a ‘glass balcony’ sporting views across playing fields.
In their design statement Page\park say: “Compositionally the approach has been to develop a simple, elegant, glass and timber clad extruded volume at the upper level, sitting on a brick ‘plinth’ – the latter forming a solid base for the ‘lighter weight’ upper structure.
“Facing the pitch, the upper floor is cantilevered out along its length to form a distinct overhang, allowing viewing of the sports pitch from the upper level, and providing opportunity for protected seating along the path edge to the lower level under the overhang.”
Completion is expected by summer 2015.
