Type: Embassy/Office Building
Status: Competition 2019
Our proposal for a new embassy building in Tokyo creates an open landscaped space at ground level extending the public park across the road. This landscape, part Japanese, part Irish is a shared cultural space for the city.
Beneath this space the public facilities of the embassy are embedded into the landscape. Above a large translucent glass roof contains the private spaces of the embassy and ambassador’s residence.
