A nature classroom to educate schoolchildren about the vibrant wildlife of Polmaise Lagoons Nature Park.
Our nature classroom proposal was developed alongside two other projects proposed for Polmaise Lagoons: Polmaise Lagoons Wetland and Polmaise Lagoons Boardwalk, all part of the Inner Forth Landscape Initiative. This project aims to widen the wetlands’ biodiversity, increase public access and enhance educational opportunities. The classroom accommodates 30 children and four adults and will double as a wildlife observation ‘hide’. A natural material palette is used, including warm cross-laminated timber to invite users into the space, with a black rubber exterior to form a clean contemporary skin.
