Kirkmichael Primary recognised for education design
November 17 2014
Acting as a visual focal point the £2.3m school is conceived as a series of linked farm steadings incorporating teaching and break out areas as well as a nursery and gymnasium.
In their design statement Holmes Miller said: “The design utilises steep symmetrically pitched roof shapes together with a simple long narrow plan form, typical of most rural locations, and flat, minimally articulated facades with a greater mass of wall to window to considerately integrate the school into its rural setting and landscape.
“External finishes of render, timber, stone and slate create a modern contemporary style and provide a robust and low maintenance finish replicating the traditional vernacular style.”
Kirkmichael Primary accommodates up to 75 pupils and replaces a 1970s facility.
