The Meridian International School is located in the heart of an old Viennese town with good transportation links. Situated in Döbling, Vienna’s 19th district, Grinzing is a unique part of Vienna famous for it’s exclusive mansions, having architectural objects from the 16th, 17th, and even 12th centuries. The schools facilities are inside Pöltinger Hof , which is a historic building from the late 17th century that is a part of an exclusive estate.
Although our school building has deep, historical roots, we enhanced its institution by designing modern, sustainable additions while still maintaining its older building.
This two story school is built for roughly 160 students for classes as well as after school activities.
During breaks children can let off stem in courtyard, that is completely surrounded, away from the public road.
There is also a library, a school canteen and a gym, that can be turned into a new learning space and experience.
After class the students can play in a playground that is two-minute walk from the school. Our school is located close to the Vienna forest and blends in with the surroundings, giving the children and staff a more intimate feel of being within nature.
We also care about the health of our children from the first day of school. Therefore, we chose a trusted company „Mayr Schulmöbel“, which produces high quality school furniture.
They believe that the future of health is prevention and begins in childhood and we absolutely agree with it. Ergonomic school furniture with moving forms is not a comfort measure, but is a medical and health necessity.
The rooms are spacious and bright, where our students can feel safe and inspired. Each classroom is equipped with Smart Boards, which not only enhance the way teachers teach, but also enhance the way students learn.
Because of their design, student desks and chairs have to encourage correct, active sitting. Perfectly matched to the body sizes, they not only prevent posture damage, but also form the basis for high concentration and efficient learning as a harmonious unit.
The idea of the modern school building design should share similarities in safe structural designs, non-toxic and eco-friendly materials, and features that promote a more comfortable, stimulating atmosphere.
