International architects Denton Corker Marshall have been commissioned by The Foreign and Commonwealth Office (FCO) to design a new British Embassy for Manila in the Philippines. The purpose-built centrally-located building will provide new office and visa facilities. The new British Embassy is a low rise building in a garden setting designed to project an image of modern Britain. It will combine innovative architecture and environmentally sensitive design, with the modern-day needs of security. It is a composition of four elements: two juxtaposed burnished metal blocks - one canted against the other, a stone block, and a plane of greenery forming the entry canopy. The contrast between these simple, abstract forms and the rich generosity of enveloping landscape will give the building a welcoming but powerful presence.
