New Lubbesthorpe Primary School
GSSArchitecture have been appointed as Architects and Lead Consultants to deliver the school for New Lubbesthorpe, a large-scale residential development in West Leicestershire. This will include 4250 dwellings, a mixed use district centre and two mixed use local centres, featuring retail, commercial, employment, leisure, health, community and residential uses.
New Lubbesthorpe is proposed to be entirely ‘green’ and the emerging masterplan has retained and protected existing landscape, ecology and heritage assets.
The school will be a key landmark of the central square, providing an element of community use, including a main hall that can be operated independently from the School.
The school building comprises largely of single storey accommodation which will include 14 classrooms, a learning resources centre, hall, kitchen, staff room, a studio and specialised room and the reception along with plenty of circulating space.
