“This culturally and environmentally sensitive project brought together the then FCO and DFID (now FCDO) offices ... into a complex that is both seismically resistant and utilises natural airflows to maintain a stable temperature in the office spaces. All within a design that respects and engages with its built and natural surroundings.”

The new office facilities expand and improve the office space with the buildings arranged around sheltered courtyards. The two new staff houses provide additional on-site staff accommodation. All of the works are seismically resilient. Additionally, the project provides recreational facilities, parking and landscaping and has been favourably received by the client.
