Reflecting the character of its surrounding context – a street of gracious residential villas – the Embassy’s design balances a welcoming frontage for visitors, a pleasant working environment for staff and the requirements of a high security compound.
With a clear distinction between the front in local Wicklow granite and the back in red brick, the organisational diagram of access points, circulation and departmental subdivision is reflected in the courtyard plan and strongly frontal form.
