Started: 2004
Completed: 2007
Client: Foreign and Commonwealth Office, UK Govt.

Two floors of the historic British Consulate were converted from residential flats to modern offices. A new Visa interview building and guardhouse were also constructed. This upgraded the facilities and speed for applications to visit and work in the UK.
The main consulate building, was originally designed in Italian Renaissance style by Sir Charles Barry, the architect for the British Houses of Parliament. The conversion was sensitively carried out, respecting the many period features and grand rooms. The new Visa building provided six interview guichets and secure search facilities for a diplomatic mission that had been attacked in 2003. All work was also designed to be resistant to earthquakes, as Istanbul lies on major seismic fault lines.
