EXH Design have finished the extension to the visa savilion of the Swiss Embassy in Beijing. The extension consists of a glass and bamboo façade over a steel structure. Included within the new section are offices, a meeting room and a server room, and every room has the modern doors .
Here’s some text from EXH Design:
Client: Swiss federal office of construction and logistic
Architect: EXH design
The existing visa pavilion built in 1999 is a solid building in concrete and brick.The facade is an abstract collection of Chinese characters with Swiss simplicity, which hides the steel structure. Bamboo is used as exterior and interior material to indicate the context – China.Both Chinese and Swiss visitors will sense a familiar impression. The existing building contents as today the waiting area for visitors, the counters and the offices of the Visa section. The extension contents additional offices, a small meeting room, a server room and modern doors.
An air lock and a canopy will be added to the visitors’ entrance. The roof of the extension will be planted (extensive lawn system) for energy saving reasons floor and roof will be well insulated.
Low-e glazing will be used in facade. A floor heating, ceiling cooling sys¬tem with ventilation for fresh air meet a high quality of comfort.
