British Embassy Dubai Extension

Project Date Location Country Category
British Embassy Dubai – Extension 2009 Dubai UAE Diplomatic


Started: 2007
Completed: 2009 – On hold
Client: FCO

The British Embassy in Dubai was originally a residence that has grown in a piece meal fashion. Jordan + Bateman was commissioned to provide a further extension and took the opportunity to provide a new entrance and simplified circulation to unify this part of the Embassy for staff and the different types of visitors.

Our long experience with the climate in the Middle East led us to create a courtyard to provide a heavily shaded outside area and create a formal entrance route. Sheikh Saeed House, an early residence of the rulers of Dubai, influenced the architecture of the building. The restrained elegance of this nineteenth century building inspired the arched doorways and sculptured windows of the new extension, while changes in circulation and function were expressed by deeply recessed windows.
