Holmes Miller draw up plans for Blairdardie Primary rebuild
January 20 2017replacement Blairdardie Primary.
Following on from Carntyne Primary, the design will require demolition of an existing school building and its relocation to the south of Kearn Avenue where a civic frontage of large openings will be created.
In their design statement the architects said: “A multi-tone buff facing brick is used to break down the scale of the elevations and to tie in with the surrounding residential building, with the addition of simple soldier courses to emphasise the accommodation areas behind. Fibre cement cladding is located within the main recessed areas of the building which identify the primary entrance points/areas of interest around the perimeter of the building.”
Divided between a teaching block and shared community space the scheme will adopt a brick colonnade to its primary south facing elevation, with a recessed area helping to control glare as well as providing shelter for the playground.
