TONY FRETTON ARCHITECTS,New British Embassy Warsaw opens today,2009,Warsaw, Poland

British Embassy Warsaw The new British Embassy in Warsaw was officially opened today by former President Lech Walesa.Designed by Stirling Prize nominee Tony Fretton Architects, the building has a serene and formal quality and is set in its own grounds, facing onto a park in an area of the city devoted to embassies.

The 4,300 sqm building is explicit in its conservation of energy; its glass elevations function as the outer skin of a double façade, which provides substantial thermal insulation in winter and relieves heat in the summer.

The project is showcased in two new UK exhibitions:

Mind into Matter - Eight Exemplary Buildings 1834 - 2009
De La Warr Pavilion, Bexhill on Sea, East Sussex
17 October 2009 - 3 January 2010
