British High Commission - Canberra
Projects / Diplomatic / Heritage / Interiors
Architectural and interior design services were provided for the replanning and refurbishment of the existing building and its environment to meet the High Commission’s changed operational requirements.
A new glass atrium and VIP entrance establishes both an engagement with and transition from the large mature landscape. Extensive roof overhang and suspended green-tinted heat-absorbing glass were incorporated to provide appropriate seasonal control.
Interior design services comprised space planning, furniture and finishes design and selection, as well as fabrication supervision.
