Embassy of Algeria
Limited Competition, Australia
A 'Z' wall carves the sloping site, generating a public court that fronts the street and a secluded private domain beyond – so dividing the Embassy from the Ambassador's Residence. The concourse extends beneath suspended horizontal floor plates than span between the court walls, arriving at a light-filled inner atrium. Stairs climb the outer wall to the upper level offices. Over the dividing wall, the residence opens to the garden, pool and northern light. The Embassy and Residence reconnect internally at the common upper level.
