anderson bell + christie are working on the detail design of a new two stream primary school and nursery as part of the Granton Waterfront Development, the project received outline planning consent in 2005 and detailed proposals will be submitted shortly.

The school design features a linear block which channels exciting views from the classrooms north out over the playing fields and to the Firth of Forth from the GP & Tutorial Rooms contained within a dramatic ‘colour box’ element which is supported above an Undercroft car parking area.

A nursery school is also proposed with a linked green roof linking onto the school and providing an additional play area for older children.
