Hillhead Primary School shortlisted for the UK’s Richest Architectural Prize
In October the Royal Incorporation of Architects in Scotland announced Hillhead Primary School as one of the 13 shortlisted entries for this year’s “RIAS Andrew Doolan Best Building in Scotland Award” which is jointly funded by the Scottish Government and the family of the late Andrew Doolan who founded the award.
The recently completed campus brings together four city centre schools and two nursery schools on a former gap site at Gibson Street and Otago Street, which is situated on the edge of Kelvingrove Park. The location of the new school acts like a window to the River Kelvin to the south and the landscape of the park to the west.
The school provides the client with excellent, flexible spaces in which to deliver the curriculum but moreover it enhances the children’s everyday experience through the relationship they have with their community, the sights and sounds of the environment and the passing of the seasons.
An announcement of the jury’s decision will be made by Scotland’s Cabinet Secretary for Culture and External Affairs, Fiona Hyslop and Andrew
“Combining a school with publicly accessible facilities, this building is very contemporary and very welcoming.”
