Zimmer Gunsul Frasca Architects & The Louis Berger Group-designed US Embassy in Belgrade complete

The new US Embassy in Belgrade was dedicated by the US Ambassador to the Republic of Serbia, Michael D. Kirby on 1 July. Designed by Zimmer Gunsul Frasca Architects with The Louis Berger Group as architect of record, the $149m scheme incorporates a cluster of buildings for more than 350 embassy personnel.

A thread of sustainability runs throughout the complex, with a storm water detention pond, solar hot water technology, low-flow plumbing fixtures, and foliage specifically selected to reduce irrigation demands. The project has been submitted for LEED certification.

In total the new compound has seven buildings, including a 3.5-storey main chancery, Marine Security Guard Quarter, a support annex with accompanying maintenance shops, a utility building, and 3 compound access control structures.
