How did the project come about? The project was led by Morag Oldham (Principal Teacher, Grange Primary) and Nicoll Russell Studios along with a local designer Linsey McIntosh (Lecturer at DJCAD and freelance designer with V&A) who helped create a brief to design a house for a multi-generational family based on their needs and wants. A linear plan was created to support teachers through the project and Nicoll Russell were available to advise and evaluate throughout, while still allowing the children to be imaginative and explore their own creativity.
