The facility complex was designed in a prestigious location, at ul. Szwoleżerów 1 in Warsaw. The actual plot of land for the development of the British location of Łazienki Królewskie and such facilities as the embassy of the Republic of Spain, the United Kingdom of Great Britain, the Kingdom of the Netherlands, India, Japan or Japan.
The designers' intention was the same gap, the clean layer of the building, the square of the square in front of the entrance to fulfill the function and the planned urban tool. Presentation of the project, representative character of the message through the restrained value of the building and moderation in the selection of architectural means of expression. In accordance with the issued construction in the Terms and Conditions, the arrangement is properly withdrawn from Szwoleżerów Street and the additional tree cover is extended.
Two independent entry areas and execution to the Embassies situated on both sides of the security service were planned. One entrance leads directly to the underground garage, the other to a 15-place surface car park. We can go to the residential part and also separated for employees and applicants, thanks to which it is possible to separate the area in the fenced residential part in such a way as to become an independent plot.
The main entrance to the embassy building is accentuated by a two-story glass façade of the halugango pavilion and preceded by a rectangular place with flagpoles. Design maintenance work in front of commission shop stands, free-of-work stands and parking stands that are natural grass.
The integral user and project contract software is an information gathering that repeats the vertical theme of the building.
FUNCTIONAL AND SPATIAL SOLUTIONS
The proposed aesthetic, functional and spatial solutions are an attempt to find a balance between the representative character of the embassy building and its small scale.
The structure of the building is built as a sequence of three blocks; housing, exhibition and office spaces surrounded by a uniform facade. The office and residential part is designed on the basis of the shafts of two staircases on a column grid, optimal for both the underground garage and the office function. The central part, connecting the office building with the residential building, i.e. the entrance and exhibition hall, is treated more freely. As the most representative place in the building, its showpiece in the eyes of visitors is intended to refer both to the sea connecting the two island parts of the country (through the undulating, softly shaped ceiling) and to the tea fields (garden design on the roof of the hall). Due to the multi-functionality of the room, the structure has been moved apart to allow for various variants of space arrangement.
The three apartments for embassy employees are designed on the +1 and +2 levels of the residential building. On the ground floor there is only the entrance to the building with a small lobby and an exit to the external utility and maintenance part in the shade. On the +1 level there are two 4-room apartments, on the +2 level there is one apartment, also with 3 bedrooms, but with a larger area with a terrace on the south side, dedicated to a high official of the Embassy. From this apartment, it is possible to go out to the roof garden and go through it to the office part.
Offices occupy three floors in the western part of the building and are arranged around the core consisting of a staircase and an internal, repeatable toilet and social part. In the most representative part of the building, on the +2 level, there is the Ambassador's office and his assistant's room. There is a direct exit from the office to the green roof of the exhibition hall, which will allow the Ambassador to conduct diplomatic and social meetings in an intimate and friendly space of the garden in the open air.
The design of the roof garden is to refer to picturesque tea plantations through evergreen, densely overgrown hills and narrow, branched paths - "trails".
The design envisages finishing with noble but limited materials. The façade of the building is designed as a two-layer, the actual façade of the building is a glazed aluminum mullion-transom façade, with black blendes outlined with structural elements - ceilings, columns or shields in the residential part. The second layer is an openwork mesh of white aluminum pipes, 18 cm in diameter and 40 cm apart. This mesh allows you to play between full and open elements. The open parts are cut-outs in the upper, screen façade, showing large glazing of zones such as the entrance to the building, conference rooms, the ambassador's office or lounges in the residential part. The full façade is made up of vertical, round, white columns, which when viewed in the convergence overlap, flowing smoothly from the openwork to the full wall, controlling sunlight and viewing the interior of the building. The interiors have a large amount of natural wood used as a finish for both floors and ceilings.
Natural green is an important element of the design. Existing trees, a large number of green lawns and a three-dimensional, undulating roof garden - all these elements affect the perception of the entire layout.
