A truly superlative student residence: Located in the heart of Geneva, about 650 students at the Geneva Graduate Institute [IHEID] have an exclusive home in Grand Morillon.

This newly constructed student residence offers its cosmopolitan inhabitants a wide range of facilities - exclusively equipped leisure areas, a library, a fitness studio and a great deal more. The various sections of this student residence are interconnected by outdoor and open link bridges. The claddings for ceilings and walls were supplied by durlum.

Printed in Bardolino oak using dur-GRAPHICS, these metal panels define this building with a welcoming as well as a modern character.
