The City of Edinburgh Council obtained special funding to provide a new nursery school within the grounds of the existing stone-built Victorian primary school. The brief was to provide two classrooms for 30 children each, together with a parents / general purpose room for use for, amongst other things, ‘wraparound’ care.

Part of the teaching philosophy that the children move freely between inside and outside and so the Nursery classrooms need a close relationship to the playground. This underpins the main design moves at Flora Stevensons which focus on the teaching spaces.

The Nursery classrooms are triangular in plan, echoed in cross section by a monopitch roof, with their long edge designed to form a permeable screen oriented to the south west, creating a close child-scale relationship with the sunny playground outside.
