Hillhead Primary School

jmarchitects

Hillhead Primary School brings together four existing primary schools and two nursery schools on a former gap site in Hillhead, a Victorian quarter defined by three storey blond-sandstone tenements. The southern end of the site extends into the park adjoined by the River Kelvin. The design approach was to create a building that mediates between the territory of the park and the urbanity of the surrounding neighbourhood. A new plinth to Gibson Street is topped with an ‘urban box’ accommodating the dining and games halls. The scale and materiality changes in the teaching wing and classrooms to the south of the site.
