Hermitage Park Primary School Nursery had a fabulous refurbishment in 2016, which was a continuation of the ‘interior design formula’ created by the City of Edinburgh Council for the 2015 new build nurseries.
After the success of the Duddingston, Wardie and Fox Covert nurseries and the research that was undertaken, City of Edinburgh Council Interior Design team was given the brief of carrying out a ‘2016 Summer Refresh’ of six existing nursery classrooms within Edinburgh. Hermitage Park Primary School Nursery was one of them.
The nursery has been redecorated in natural wooden colours for the flooring, tables, chairs and storage units. The decoration takes inspiration from nature using decorative branches on the walls wrapped in fairy lights.
Furnishings like sofas, cushions and rugs make the nursery look and feel homely so that the children are relaxed and happy.
The design of the nursery spaces is centred around the children. This shows in features such as display boards and storage that are low down and easily accessed by the children.
There are also some chalkboard painted walls for the children to write and draw on.
