Thula Fort Restoration – 21 Jun 2013
Threatened by the disruption that might ensue from the construction of a road, the Thula community, with the help of The Social Fund for Development, has undertaken a series of historic preservation projects to protect cultural assets, including rebuilding the walls of burial grounds and walls of agricultural terraces, restoring the Bab al Mayah gate, watch towers, paths and waterways, and repairing the cistern that remains in use to this day.

British Embassy Yemen
The British Embassy in Sana’a was one of the first embassies to be built following the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s review of security of their overseas network, which was prompted by the threat from international terrorism to Britain’s diplomatic missions around the world.
The Embassy building is located to the north-east of the city centre in an area destined to become a new diplomatic district.
Client: Foreign & Commonwealth Office, UK
