The Architectural Design is made in modernist style on the educational basis of Waldorf system. The architecture style represents a new approach of Waldorf direction taking into consideration the geographical school location. The architecture contains elements featured with southern regions like a half-open amphitheater on the roof, open areas for gliders, flat roofs with consoles.
School functionality is based on the educational philosophy of Rudolf Steiner. Its pedagogy emphasizes the role of imagination in learning, striving to integrate holistically the intellectual, practical, and artistic development of pupils.
School classes are done in a special way. Everything is considered there – color, form, quality, sound. Natural materials are used only. School desks, chairs, regiments are made of wood.
According to our concept - floor planning split elementary school and middle classes. Science classes - Chemical, Physic, Biology located in basement and first floor as well as art, music, theater located above. Also, roofs are used for open air painting classes. Because school located in warm enough climate we use amphitheater for public shows and events.
