The Site

site of the school in Grand Bois

The site for the construction and development of HSE is located 37 miles (60 kilometers) east of Port Au Prince. The topography of the land is one of contrasts, which ranges from the flatness of the valley to the incline of the hills above. Front to back, the site climbs 200′ above the valley floor. Due to the range of the topographic diversity of the site, the design places less frequented residential dormitories on the slope (the dormitories) and clusters the highly connected educational and public buildings on the flat.
