The Dutch Ambassador’s residence in Beijing is a large property, located in the embassy district of the city. It has two different wings each with its own view of the garden. One wing is dedicated to official embassy activities, the other one is for private purposes.
The most expressive part of the design is a long wall of Mongolian granite, topped by a cantilevered roof. The South and West wings have glass façades overlooking the garden, which has been landscaped to resemble a dry river. Between the two wings, a large garden provides a welcome touch of greenery and warmth during Beijing’s harsh winters.
