Location: Eastwood Pretoria
Size: 267 sqm
Description: The embassy was designed to be in proportion and in rhythm to the existing heritage building. The existing building could not be overpowered aesthetically and so concrete was used in the new building to compliment the sandstone of the original. Laser-cut Korten steel was used to compliment the face-brick and the steel facade was used for two purposes: to add an Indian motif and serve as a sunscreen. The long slit in concrete facade allows sufficient light into office spaces while blocking direct sun and glare from the west.
