On 14 October 2015, the new building of the Estonian Embassy in London was opened at 44 Queen’s Gate Terrace. The neoclassical house was built in 1857 and used originally for residential purposes. The new interior architectural design for the embassy building was created by KAOS Architects.
This time, we used a poetic approach, inspired by our land’s beautiful wilderness. Estonia is a country of wetlands, lakes and forests. Pristine nature is apparently the purest force that connects us and ties our origins together.
The Embassy is a small piece of Estonia in the centre of London, and the primeval landscapes of its interior are like a letter from home. The peat bogs on the walls, chairs and carpets, the thicket, and birches hidden in the chandeliers are Estonia’s language, which needs no translation.
