Hurray, the new building is finished!

It’s done! The construction workers, carpenters and voluntary helpers outdid themselves over the last weeks in order to finish the new EC building in time for the start of the International Summer course… they managed, and the new building is really shining.

The beautifully laid-out wooden floors made of oak for inside and of mountain pine for the balconies create a warm atmosphere all around. Daylight comes flooding in through the light wells and the huge windows everywhere. Thanks to the anthracite stone tiling, also the bathrooms with their shower cubicles have a natural feeling to them. Colorful furniture donated by friends and centers, the fair-faced concrete and steel staircase railings combined with fine fabrics for the covers of the beds give the building a unique, modern style. Oh, and yes, then there’s that view across the Allgäu mountains and the lake, of course…

On August 2, H.H. 17th Karmapa Trinley Thaye Dorje will bless and inaugurate our new living space – and put the crown on the years of work done by Caty Hartung, the team of architects, countless construction workers and of course all the voluntary helpers, made possible by the millions donated by friends from all across the globe to moreEC.

High time to celebrate what we have achieved together!
