Richard Murphy Architects was commissioned to design the interior of the new British Embassy in the Macedonian capital, Skopje. The building housing the embassy is a concrete framed building with brick infill panels and is leased from the Seismological Institute.
Richard Murphy Architects inherited a utilitarian scheme from the Foreign and Commonwealth Office’s own in house design team and added a strong Identity to the design primarily by adapting the scheme to work with the existing buildings own structural logic, expressed in the coffered slabs, and using a limited palate of materials and colours. The project was procured under a design and build contract using uk and local macedonian contractors, and went from design to practical completion in just eight months.

The project was completed in 2006.
