British Embassy Algiers Landscape

The design of the British Embassy in Algiers reflects the cultures of both Britain and Algeria.  The 1,770sqm three-level building is set out on the axis of the retained neo-Moorish Ambassador's Residence dating from 1902. The design, preserving views out over the Bay of Algiers, was conceived as a series of curved, parallel walls carving gracefully through the sloping landscape to enclose the primary circulation space and office accommodation.  The circular geometry of the new landscape provides a dramatic setting for both new and old elements.
