Yabetz School

 

 

 

 

This project was commissioned by the Israel Ministry for Education's department for the Visual Improvement of Educational Institutions. The brief asked for a design with an ecological and educational dimenstion. The design concentrates on a neglected corner of the school courtyard on the one side and the entrance area of the main school building. The courtyard design focusses around water course which passes underneath a wooden gazebo with stone benches and flows into a reedbed pond which acts as an biological filter for the water system.
