New Primary School, Colmonell

ARPL Architects Ltd

South Ayrshire Council sought to build a new, highly sustainable primary school in Colmonell. Following a limited design competition ARPL Architects' proposal was selected. The new school design carefully sets out a top-lit open area at the heart of the building with classrooms opening to outdoor teaching areas. All spaces are naturally lit and naturally ventilated. The very high levels of insulation, turf roof and wood chip boiler all add to the environmental credentials of the proposal. The school has won three awards: The Roses Design Award for Education, the Roses Design Award for Sustainability and the GIA Design Award.
