Tarremah Hall - Morrison & Breytenbach Architects
Three spaces, two boxes and a linking element - this simple courtyard design concept belies the complex set of requirements the building delivers. It achieves optimal, cost effective, multifunctional spaces. It anticipates the future development of a high school campus. It moderates a change in built scale from the existing small class-roomed courtyards to this vastly larger hall. It continues the existing expression of sculptural form and use of natural materials. It meets community expectations regarding an appropriate architectural language derived from and alluding to architectural precedent set by Rudolph Steiner‘s early Goetheanum designs and subsequently applied to Steiner school buildings worldwide. This is an environmentally sustainable building demonstrating innovation in the architect initiated structural system, solar energy, materials and detailing.
