Danderhall Community Hub earns Midlothian Council approval
April 3 2019
Midlothian Council have okayed construction of a £17m primary school and community hub on a 3.3-hectare site off Edmonstone Road, Danderhall.
The education hub will serve as a direct replacement of Danderhall Primary School together with associated nursery, library and leisure facilities.
Designed by AHR with LDA Design the school has been designed to operate as a single shared facility with clearly defined entrances for each component part.
In a planning statement AHR wrote: “The community and nursery block are connected with the primary schools in the centre of the building. The Nursery element drops down 1.5M from the main school creating a separate play space for the younger pupils.”
The materials palette includes a mix of render, rainscreen and curtain wall glazing.
