Light renders a civic beacon of diplomacy.
Destroyed under Allied bombing at the end of WWII, the new site serves as a symbol of strength during a fatal time. The building serves simultaneously as supportive urban framework and companion for the nearby Brandenburg Gate, occupying a focal position at the symbolic and political center of the reunified Germany.
Working with a design team led by Moore Ruble Yudell, our scope included the site, courtyards, entry rotunda, circulation, private and open offices, the elegant state room, as well as conference rooms. Special priority was placed on building security within the lively urban location. The Embassy opened for business in the spring of 2008, and celebrated its Grand Opening on July 4th 2008 which included a keynote address by former President George H.W. Bush.
