After an 8 year absence, the then Foreign Secretary took the decision to open a new embassy in Asunción, Paraguay. FCO Services were retained to design and deliver the new offices.
The new office fit-out is located in a multi-occupancy building in Asuncion’s central business district. The design brief was to showcase a contemporary vision of the UK whilst allowing for flexible working. Security elements were incorporated into the designs, as well as communal meeting spaces within the embassy to accommodate video conferencing and business presentations.
FCO Services architecture, mechanical and engineering professionals developed a coherent design, liaising with colleagues in telecommunications and security to ensure that a complete design proposal was presented for approval.
A contemporary ‘best of British’ design was used for the new British Ambassadors office which has certainly enhanced the working environment and prestige of the British Embassy in Paraguay.
As a result of the successful delivery of the new British Embassy in Asuncion, the British Ambassador can now build bilateral relations in a modern, impactful context. The UK now has diplomatic presence in Paraguay, after several years of absence.
