Situated on a 10-acre site in the suburbs of Oslo, this multi-building complex will include a chancery, an underground support annex, three entry pavilions and Marine security guard quarters. When complete, the new facility will provide approximately 200 embassy employees with a state-of-the-art work space. The design is based on the US Department of State Office of Overseas Building Operations Standard Embassy Design and Design Excellence Program adapted to fit the context of Norwegian architectural tradition. The design includes natural stone and weathered copper facades and extensive natural landscaping as well as many sustainable design features. The project also includes rebuilding public roads adjacent to the project site. The project is designed and constructed to achieve LEED Silver certification.
