Swiss Embassy Yaounde

The current urban area on which the embassy will be built once was a fragile lateritic terrain where the jungle vegetation used to grow. This situation led us to design a building that, while responding to the program, allowed us to recreate the lost vegetation to the fullest extent possible. To materialize this intention, we resorted to flat landscaped roofs to create a small botanical garden and used modulated-prefabricated construction solutions that incorporated traditional basic mechanisms to achieve microclimates that improve comfort in a simple way. - 3º53'42.80"N-11º30'52.40"E -
