Port Glasgow early years centre set for expansion
November 6 2019
A Port Glasgow school is set for expansion with plans to build a 64 pupil extension to the current Rainbow Family Centre on Oronsay Avenue.
Plans drawn up by Holmes Miller Architects show a single-storey addition with a play space tucked within a mono-pitch roof, enabling a hierarchy of spaces to be provided within the full floor to ceiling reach of the space.
An exterior playground connects with the existing building by extending the current courtyard to a similar space within the new proposal. A feature public-facing colonnade has also been specified to provide shelter to these spaces.
In their design outline, the architects wrote: “The existing main entrance and the extension entrance are defined by the new public realm and the architecturally designed colonnade which stretch between the new proposal and the existing Rainbow Family Centre.
The development of the shared urban realm creates a defined public space to be used by pupils, teaching staff and parents.”
An adjoining administration block sits within a contrasting flat roof element.
