Murphy wins new embassy contract

  • Comment

Richard Murphy Architects has won another project from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office - this time for a new British Embassy building in Macedonia.

The practice has won plaudits for its previous embassy work, including the design for the British High Commission in the Sri Lankan capital of Colombo.

The new temporary embassy will be in the former Yugoslavian republic's capital of Skopje, and will house the British ambassador for the next five years.

Murphy, who won the competition after producing initial concepts for the scheme, will be working mainly on the interior of the building.

The Scottish practice won a limited competition for the Sri Lankan High Commission building in 2001, working alongside local firm Millroy Perera.

The project was a single-storey design arranged around small, intimate courtyards, inspired by the work of Geoffrey Bawa.
