The House of Sweden Embassy

Design work for the 85,000 square foot building incorporates elements related to nature and materials native to Sweden to reflect the purpose of the building. The interior includes wooden floors, benches and soft-colored leather chairs which complement the unique exterior design. Outdoor terraces and gardens unify the building with the public path along the Rock Creek.

In collaboration with Wingardh Arkitektkontor AB – Design Architect.

When we received the opportunity to be architect-of-record for House of Sweden we immediately jumped at the idea of executing a beautiful concept envisioned by renowned Swedish architect Gert Wingardh.  The result, an award-winning jewel in our hometown on the Potomac, speaks to the Vision of the Swedish Government, Gert’s extraordinary talent, and the dedication of a large team of professionals, artists and craftsmen. We were very proud to be at the center of the design and engineering team.
