Replacement building on the existing site of an 850-pupil school in Greenock
The school is built between a steeply sloping railway embankment and an arterial road.
The intention is to achieve a civic presence, referencing the language of town hall and public institution through the use of a giant colonnade and stepped entrance. The building is constructed from concrete and masonry elements.
The building arrangement is centred on the social gathering space of the dining hall and the library.
