Angola Embassy in Brasília
Embassy of Republic of Angola
2750 sq. meters
Bioclimatic Ventilation and Lighting
The new Angola Embassy Complex in Brasília focusses on integrating both the modern and vernacular architectural cultures of Angola and the modernist design of Brasília.
One of the leading aspects of the design is the assimilation of the local climate characteristic with the required program of an embassy complex. To that end, we proposed a perforated translucent façade, which both reflects the canopy of typical Brazilian cerrado trees and the climactic need for natural ventilation.
The project also proposes a water mirror element surrounding the entrance of the embassy building. This not only serves as a reflective architectural element but also as a climate control agent, combating large temperature variations and low humidity, which are prominent in the local climate of Brasília.
