The Embassy of India

The Indian Embassy imitates its surroundings, namely alone-standing structures, as a villa-like solitary volume. From the street the building appears to have a solid façade. A narrow vertical incision in the façade opens up the cylindrical atrium of the public entrance and provides a view deep into the structure.

The building appears to the outside as an oblong block and contains within its structure a complex arrangement of room sequences with a garden courtyard as its core. The correspondence of building and garden, each on a square plan, is evident above all in the interplay of mass and void between the entrance atrium and the built cylinder. The cubic forms are given expression through massive roughcast red Indian sandstone.

The public entrance to the embassy is accessed via the entrance atrium reached from the street façade. From here all areas accessible to the public can be reached, including the separately developed consulate. The public areas are grouped around the entrance atrium and an adjoining double-height hall. From this point one enters the ground floor function hall, which maintains as a vital feature its orientation to the garden courtyard. In addition to these facilities the public area includes an exhibition hall with an adjoining library and a business centre.
