Dunblane School wins permission in principle
Holmes Miller Architects have secured planning permission in principle for the creation of a new Queen Victoria School, Dunblane, by Stirling Council.

The MoD funded boarding school is pressing ahead with a phased redevelopment and modernisation spearheaded by Holmes Miller in collaboration with Horner + MacLennan landscape architects.

This work will see the existing estate and grounds rationalised with the addition of a new teaching block, accommodation, a pipes and drums centre, dance hall, stores and dining kitchen.

The brick clad teaching block will be given a serrated roofline to tie-in with surrounding architecture with large glazed panels to the north offering views over neighbouring playing fields.

As part of this work a number of surplus unlisted buildings will be demolished.

Permission secured in principle, pending the outcome of several existential crises facing the very fabric of Scotland, the United Kingdom, and its military
Good Job

Looks pretty good in the visual- hope the detail design stage doesn't see muckle gutters, downpipes and roof eaves introduced though.

If it's at Planning in Principle stage, then I guess the image is more artists impression than designed scheme ready for gutter detailing...

Personally I hope the detail design stage does not see the removal of the grey ghost girl staring forlornly at the sky, who do these blinking contractors think they are...
