Greenwood Academy
Dreghorn, North Ayrshire


Requiring refurbishment to provide accommodation for 1500 pupils, an entirely new school could be constructed within the project’s budget constraints, better serving the needs of the pupils now and in the future.


We created functional teaching spaces around a central flexible multi-purpose area and internal landscaped courtyard, creating a sense of connection and offering an atmosphere more conducive to modern learning. The heart of the building is designed to be the focus for community activities, an important consideration for parents and pupils.
