Design Awards 2012
Heathfield Primary School
Winner: Design Award
A major redevelopment and extension of the existing school in Ayr for South Ayrshire Council.
The redevelopment respects the scale and line of the original Victorian school frontage, removes the clutter to the rear and meshes the existing building with a new sports hall, dining hall and external courtyard at the heart of a new compact rectilinear building plan.
Building composition is composed of simple elements and materials to deliver clean, crisp, elegant lines which ensures a modern and contemporary architectural appearance, contrasting and complimenting the original Victorian school building, delivering an excellent environment for nurturing young minds.
Final building has sensitively integrated new and existing building elements with the integration of bespoke furniture, feature lighting and mezzanine floors making it a firm favourite with all the pupils and staff.
