Camden practice RTKL

  • Comment

Camden practice RTKL has won a competition to design the British Embassy in Rabat, Morocco. The Foreign and Commonwealth Office selected the practice due to its use of local styles. There was also praise for an effective response to the local climate and culture combined with the necessary security measures for such a building. A traditional North African courtyard design was used, combined with local crafts - including wood screens, brises-soleil, stonework and mosaic artistry.Ken Christian, vice-president of RTKL, said: 'Our primary aim was to assist the role of the British Embassy in Rabat by providing a building which is expressive of openness and democracy.'

Landscape architect for the scheme was Derek Lovejoy Partnership.
