IAM - HCR / MONTBRILLANT ADMINISTRATIVE BUILDING- UNITED NATIONS HIGH COMMISSIONER FOR REFUGEES

Building tenant: the HCR - the High Commissioner for Refugees

Designed as a boat overlooking the Place des Nations (Nations Square), the Montbrillant Administrative Building houses the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (HCR).

The HCR needed to find a new building capable of housing the majority of its employees, the number of which had increased exponentially due to the worsening international political situation which increased the number of refugees in the world.

The FIPOI constructed this building for the HCR (which is a tenant) in the nineties.

Building owned by the FIPOI
