RIAS Best Building in Scotland Award Finalist 2008

“This three – storey block, linked to the school’s existing buildings, completes the frontage and creates a new courtyard, a new landscaped plaza and sets the context for the school’s all weather sports facilities.

Designed to bring cohesion to what was previously a disparate collection of facilities the building is divided into two wings around an atrium. The classrooms in the southern wing are divided into a bank of five on each floor reflecting the departmental structure. The northern wing houses staff and administration facilities arranged round the large, open plan, Art Department.”

Jordanhill School

Jordanhill School educates children from age 4–19. It was formerly run by Jordanhill College of Education as its demonstration school, and was previously known as Jordanhill College School. Uniquely among Scottish schools, it is funded directly by the Scottish Government.

In 1993 the college merged with the University of Strathclyde, with the Jordanhill Campus serving as home to the Education Faculty. The campus has fallen into disrepair, and is being redeveloped as new housing by CALA Homes Ltd.
