  • The project wants to exacerbate the idea of enclosure proposed by the program of an embassy and the existing urban context.
    The chancery and the service housing spread from each other to offer a vast garden. Across, the ambassador residence is the only emergent element oriented north towards the presidential palace, becoming the representative program of the complex.

    All the reception spaces (big living room, small living room, eating space…) are immerged inside the vegetation. This enclosed garden is planted with local vegetation.

  • NOTAN OFFICE is a Brussels based architecture practice founded in 2014 by Frédéric Karam.
    Aware of the specificity of each project, the studio often collaborates with others and works on projects in Switzerland, Lebanon, England and Belgium.

    The work of NOTAN OFFICE is socially and programmatically committed. With a rational approach, the studio boldly manipulate the established, resulting in a unique architecture.
    Whatever the scale, the approach is contextual and seeks to enhance the essence of a place, the people and their concerns in line with today’s society.

    With sustainability in mind, architecture needs to be generous and let the users make it their own.
    NOTANs projects offers sensorial experiences; from spaces to material, the projects are textural.
