Renovation of German Embassy in Washington DC
HIGH PERFORMANCE WINDOWS IN THE USA
The German Embassy in Washington DC is a prestigious property combining the main colonial-style Embassy building and a semi-detached house. Both structures were designed in the 1960s by prominent German architect Egon Eiermann.
In recent years, the impressive main Embassy building has suffered from asbestos contamination. As a result, the entire German Embassy has had to be completely renovated in order to meet modern-day health and safety standards – a challenging task for the architects having to balance the rigorous constraints of US building regulations with the need to respect and adapt Eiermann’s original design.
To fulfil the requirements of the job, the team of architects have chosen to use Accoya windows as part of the overall renovation project.
