The Botha’s Halte Primary School is a sensitively designed educational building that both inspires and brings hope to a disadvantaged rural community. The project demonstrates that even rural schools in South Africa can get access to the best educational tools available and that a regionalist approach to architecture can deliver a building that both speaks to its context and its place in time. It is an original piece of architecture that demonstrates, through its unique layout, form and use of materials, how sustainability principles and cultural heritage can be incorporated into the pedagogy of educational buildings.
