Scott Brownrigg submit plan for modular Edinburgh classrooms
Scott Brownrigg has submitted plans on behalf City of Edinburgh Council to erect a two storey block of ancillary accommodation at Fox Covert Primary school offering additional classroom space and break-out areas.

Embracing efficiencies in standardisation of components and design with similar classroom expansions around the city the fibre cement clad build seeks to minimise loss of playground space whilst accommodating the needs of expanding rolls in the city.

Featuring a cutaway corner highlighting the main entrance the linear block colour accents will be employed at window reveals and entrance points to enliven the façade.

In their design statement the architects said: “We have looked to develop a simple and vernacular form
for the massing of the building - this is a modern classroom building and it should have a simple and modern aesthetic.”

Internally spaces are designed to be as flexible as possible with ground floor areas opening out to the playground and first floor reaching up to the underside of the sloping roof.
