“The High Commission is a sophisticated and elegant collection of buildings, designed by thoughtful and erudite architects ... It is down to the strength of the original idea and sheer persistence of the architects that the resulting scheme flies a flag not only for Britain but also for good architecture everywhere.”

Tony Chapman
Architecture 08: The Guide to the RIBA Awards

“Through careful siting and inventive use of local materials the New British High Commission is able to take advantage of passive environmental control strategies, providing a model for responsive architecture that learns from the past with integrity and never descends into pastiche.”

CATHERINE SLESSOR
THE ArchitecturAL REVIEW

“The British High Commission building in Kampala is all about engaging with the local economy. Instead of ‘arriving in a box’ (as embassies often do) this one arises out of an exploration by architect, client and local contractors of the vernacular and the ways in which it can be adapted to the needs of sophisticated building types such as these. By using and adapting local materials, this project seems literally to grow out of the red soil of Africa.”
