A fitting response to the city and its climate.
BDP designed the structural and environmental engineering for a building in which the British High Commission and embassies of Germany and the Netherlands and for the European Commission in Tanzania were co-located.
Defence against the climate pervaded all aspects of the design. To prevent overall heat gain our design has a floating solar roof and external louvres to three elevations. Materials were sourced locally wherever possible and supported via local agents and contractors.
