The Norwegian practice Kristin Jarmund Architects presented the new Royal Norwegian Embassy in Kathmandu, Nepal last year.

“The New Norwegian Embassy been been built on the north end of the existing embassy site in Patan part of Kathmandu. The building is integrated into the slope of the site, allowing plateaus of outdoor space to extend into the building. A south facing intimate patio is directly linked to the vestibule inside.”

“The facade, facing the Himalayen Mountains, is architecturally expressed by an added volume, which raises above the main entrance of the otherwise single-storey building. This added volume contains – among other functions – the Ambassador’s office and is accented by a dynamic zigzag panoramic window, which footprint makes a tribute to and reflects the Himalayas.


The Embassy is constructed from local materials, with local laboureres, and the intention is to integrate the building with the surrounding city texture.”
