EHDO Architecture has led the re-build of the Beehive Montessori school from master plan through design and construction since 2009.

Over the past 9 years stage 1-4 have been completed with efficiency and style by Dave Delahunty and his team. The 5th stage of this highly complex project is still under construction – ensuring that EHDO will be involved in the design and construction of this independent school from beginning to end.

This school is blessed with a magnificent location only 50m from the Indian Ocean. Its engagement with the site and surroundings is critical to the success of the design, including EHDO‘s responses to the cooling summer breeze, cold winter winds, salt corrosion, views and the future impact of redevelopment in adjacent areas.

Beehive is an independently run school providing a learning environment that allows students significant independence within an inclusive educational model. A requirement of the School is the children’s connection to both the outdoors and climate during their day with facilities accommodating a wide range of activities. Arrangement of buildings and spaces reflect the Montessori pedagogy with the provision of a variety of flexible use spaces indoor and out.

EHDO approached the design as a Mediterranean seaside village, one that feels intimate rather than institutional. Various scaled buildings, open spaces, pedestrian corridors, class and public courtyards were created with a main ‘piazza’ pulling these elements together. This has facilitated a vibrant school community.

Ultimately the stunning design of the Beehive Montessori School will allow generations of children to learn and evolve in beautiful surroundings conducive to high quality learning.
