Royal Norwegian Embassy Beijing 2010 Beijing China Diplomatic


Started: 2009
Completed: 2010 – Awaiting Planning Permission
Client: Royal Norwegian Goverment

The Royal Norwegian Government ran a limited competition to design an extension for their embassy in Beijing, China. Jordan + Bateman made the short list and went on to win the competition to design the new extension. Our proposal created a dinstictly new and complimentary extension, that successfully linked the three existing structures. We added a new floor to one of the buildings and created a new entrance space. The new structure is wrapped in a perforated zinc facade, which compliments the brickwork of the existing compound and unifies the old with the new.

Jordan + Bateman is using its extensive experience of diplomatic buildings including upgrading security measures and structures against seismic activity. The Norwegian Embassy in Beijing had to be structurally reinforced against the threat of earthquakes, resulting in an innovative solution of wrapping external columns in carbon fibre sheets and resin.
