Robertson to build £8.7m Skye Gaelic school
March 8 2016
Incorporating a series of ventilation chimneys Portree Gaelic Primary School will be given over to largely public spaces on the ground floor with classrooms situated above, all enclosed by a simple palette of timber, fibre cement and pre cast concrete panels.
In a statement Highland Council's in-house architects said: “A number of voids are taken from the simple volume to form a generous entrance canopy, and for the future classrooms. Coloured shutters will protect these spaces and at the same time offer the opportunity to bring a vibrant message through key Gaelic words and phrases around the idea of learning.”
The school is due to break ground later this year following demolition of the Margaret Carnegie Hostel in March and will become operational in late 2017.
