Re-planning the British Embassy Compound in Bangkok, to provide 7,000m2 of new residential accommodation, recreational facilities and staff amenities
Creating a new main entrance, the site plan provides a lateral approach to the Ambassador's Residence in the tradition of the English country house, where the landscape and residence are revealed gradually through a sequence of views and spaces.
The residences are arranged along the western side of the compound, with the recreational facilities at their northern end, exploiting the secluded water side location. The facilities include a recreational club house, sports facilities, a swimming pool, children's playroom, medical facilities, and storage and technical spaces.
The aim of the project was to maintain the ecological value of the site, and add energy-efficient architecture.
