|British Consulate General Alexandria||1999||Alexandria||Egypt||Restoration|
Started: 1 February 1999
Completed: 1 June 1999
Client: Foreign and Commonwealth Office
The office of the British Consul General in Alexandria is housed in a large historic Neoclassical villa. The project was to reconfigure, upgrade and restore the office to meet modern needs. The key to the project was to infill a classical colonnaded external loggia to form a new commercial waiting room and reception. This was accomplished by installing a frameless glass entrance screen behind the curved colonnade. The existing waiting room allowed for the additional back office space and the decant area for the reconfiguration and restoration works.
