World Architectural Projects in Jul 2007

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.
