Gallery: Marecollege: Beautiful Waldorf School Built with Natural Mater...

Each of the rooms are well lit and ventilated

24H Architecture left parts of the original building erected in the 1960s and then added a new central hall – a “lemniscate.” This is a figure eight structure or two loops that join in a central middle. The idea was to give the public face of the school a very distinctive identity. Add to this natural slate cladding and the effect is really quite powerful.

An interior courtyard that acts as the central playground has a facade of hardwood strips arranged in leaf patterns while each of the 32 classrooms have unique wooden ceilings. A new U-shaped building has a brick facade and timber detailing inside that is ideally suited to the self-empowering and nature-centric Waldorf curriculum. Fresh, airy, and soon to be covered in flowering plants, this is a very special place for students to learn and grow.
