Overview
Full renovation of Room XX of the Palais des Nations in Geneva with inclusion of a significant art work in the ceiling. Since then, this room has officially been renamed the " Human Rights and Alliance of Civilizations Room ". This room has 754 seats equipped with the latest technology and the United Nations Human Rights Council usually hosts its meetings there.

History
In the seventies, our office had already taken part in the construction of the E building and the Conference Room and it is quite natural that it was again appointed to carry out this substantial transformation.
