This series of project are located around the world, we had the oportunity to work together with the Bundesamt für Bauten und Logistik BBL in Bern on the renovation works for the Embassies of Switzerland in Colombo, Jakarta, Singapur, Amman and Wellington. Each of the projects involved different works, from internal design elements or external renovations to the design and planning of new temporary offices that were to be developed to keep the Embassy running during the renovation.
In 2019 Berrel Berrel Kräutler won a competition for the new Embassy of Switzerland in Singapur/Malaysia.
The existing buildings is going to be completely renovated on the inside while having a minimum inpact on the outter shell, this means that the whole main building needs to be empty for the works and all of the workplaces have to be relocated during the different phases of the project. Almost every workingplace can be placed in the existing buildings around the campus but a provisional office is going to be built for the Visa workers.
These buildings in the area are houses that needs to be converted into offices and the teams working in needed to be located in such a way that they can still work as efficient as they are right now. The transformation process involved a big number of security measurements that needed to be plan and install for this temporary offices, all this elements are regulated by the BBL.
