KAOS Architects have been invited to Open House London 2016, which will be held during this year’s London Design Festival. On 17 and 18 September, the Estonian Embassy in London will open its doors to everyone. Margit Argus from KAOS Architects will speak about the design and construction of the embassy building.
The Estonian Embassy in London is located in Kensington, in a neoclassical house which was built in 1857 and used originally for residential purposes. Many of the original elements are still preserved, including the cornices, decor, fireplaces and doors.
We enhanced the historical interior with views of Estonia’s primeval nature, to convey a message of quietude and tranquillity. The static images of our homeland’s foggy bogscapes make the mind wander far away to a dreamy northern serenity, telling a story about mysterious Estonia and its pristine nature.
