Maison de l'Ecriture Montricher is the home of Jan Michalski Foundation. It is located in Montricher, at the foot of the Jura Vaudois, in the locality of Bois Désert. Facing the lake and the Alps, the site reflects calm and unique atmosphere, among the beautiful landscape.
Its design, in harmony with nature, resembles that of a small city in which the different buildings are intended for the Foundation’s multiple activities. Buildings include individual accommodation to host writers in residence, a dining room, a lounge for relaxation, a vast library for documentation, an adaptable space for exhibitions and an auditorium for performances of all types. Maison de l'Ecriture Montricher is one of the most emblematic buildings in Western Switzerland.
