A new addition to the Warsaw diplomatic quarter: glass from the CLIMAplusSECURIT partners Glaskontor Erfurt and KINON Porz provides optimal energy efficiency and security in the new British Embassy, built according to plans of London’s Tony Fretton Architects.

The construction of the new British embassy in Warsaw took over six years: increased security requirements made a complete revision of the original plans from Tony Fretton necessary.However, despite highest standards of security, the British architect produced a minimalistic building which is also aesthetically convincing.
