Studio E shortlisted for Scottish Design Awards 

Studio E Architects’ Newark Primary School, opened by Prime Minister Gordon Brown in August last year, has been shortlisted in the Public Building category of the 2009 Scottish Design Awards. The project is the only primary school to be nominated in this year’s awards which recognise excellence in Scottish architecture.

Nominations for the awards were revealed at Glasgow’s Fruit Market on 18th March and the results will be announced at the gala awards ceremony being held on the 29th May at the Crowne Plaza in Glasgow and other architects shortlisted in the category includes PagePark, Elder and Cannon and Bennetts Associates.

The aspiration of both Inverclyde Council and the design team was to provide an exceptionally high quality and environmentally responsible education facility that would inspire the children and staff that would use it on a daily basis. In response to the client’s strong sustainable agenda natural lighting and passive ventilation have been maximised in all occupied spaces.

Built by Barr Construction, the school is seen as a landmark within the area and offers an outwardly positive statement to the people of Port Glasgow about the role of education in the community.
