A new HIgh School

Client: Architecture + Design Scotland and Edinburgh City Council
Location: Edinburgh, Scotland
Time: 2012-2013

Edinburgh City Council will be replacing Boroughmuir High School, moving from their current Bruntsfield site to a site in Fountainbridge, a short distance away.  Stone Opera will facilitate workshops for the pupils with the aim to investigate ways in which the surrounding area can better provide opportunities for health and wellbeing and encourage active learning in a real life context.
