Seamab provides care and education for children and young people from across Scotland who have more complex needs and require specialised intensive support. Up to 21 children are at Seamab, with up to 15 children in residential placements in 3 bungalows about a mile away from the school.

3DReid is working in collaboration with Seamab School and LBA on the architectural proposals, which include a variety of consultations with the school steering group, workshops with the students and design development.

The proposal is to create a design that takes precedent from the landscape, the nature of the site and the character of the existing setting. The form of the building reflects the scale of the agricultural buildings within the area but the feel of the building itself is more reminiscent of a domestic setting. A blend of these ideals within the external palette should be clear.

A series of workshops with the students taken place during the design process giving an introduction in how we bring the design to life.

With planning permission granted last year, the charity has £2.4m funding in place with building work due to start this summer and completed early 2025. More information on Seamab’s fundraising campaign can be found on their website.


Our workshop process

A series of workshops with the students during the design process  informed the design concept. Using a design idea that one of the pupils has created, we proposed building a small scale structure with the students. The structure will go on to form part of the playground and a permanent fixture for the children to play with.

“The ‘Building our Future’ project will build a new school for the children of Seamab, a school which will be able to meet their needs and provide them with the environment they require and the future they deserve.”
