British Embassy Warsaw : Tony Fretton
Designed by Stirling Prize nominee Tony Fretton Architects, the British Embassy building has a serene and formal quality and is set in its own grounds, facing onto a park in an area of the city devoted to embassies. The 4,300 sqm building is explicit in its conservation of energy; its glass elevations function as the outer skin of a double façade, which provides substantial thermal insulation in winter and relieves heat in the summer. The distinctive facility comprises administration offices and a private office for the Ambassador, Consular and UK Border Agency, an exhibition hall and restaurant.

A Garden Plaza is located in the void created by the L-shape, which serves as a meeting point and gateway to the cultural delights offered inside the new building. This Plaza is connected to the Central Library and the YAH via pedestrian crosswalks. The space is defined by a cantilevered roof which encloses the space and offers climate protection. It features a landscaped topography which also serves to define the space while leaving it permeable to the outside urban environment.
