Taikura Whare

A recent engagement to develop a design for a new Whare Learning Space at Taikura Rudolf Steiner School in Hastings has special significance to Sol, as a former student of the School.

"The design of the new space has been a very collaborative process with a lot of discussion about the current learning requirements, the surrounding landscape, the building orientation, how the building connects to the rest of the school (to the east), and the street to the North. Through iterations of the designs meeting and site walkovers, the concept provides ample interior and exterior spaces that can be adorned and reflect the building use over time." - Sol Atkinson, Architect

The concept has been presented to the school community and will be moving into detailed design.
