Switzerland, at an altitude of 1263 meters, east of the Geneva lake and with an overall southern orientation. The building site is located in the close vecinity of the Leysin American School. The new hall is built on top of the old one, which no longer meets the current needs. Wood and fiber cement cladding are used for a better integration in the natural environment.
