At the Roses Design Awards it won silver in both the Sustainability and Education Categories. It is also winner of the Glasgow Institute of Architects award for best Education Design.

The brief set by South Ayrshire Council had very high aspirations for a new sustainable village school. Our design solution sought to fulful these aims with a forward looking design which anticipated the educational and environmental needs of the coming decades.
