In order to adapt to the terrain’s topography, the embassy is composed of two buildings linked by an inner street.
The architectural unity allows for a direct understanding of the multiplicity of functions present in the building.
The main structure, with its prestigious thirteen-floor façade, houses on its first level the consulate’s public oriented services.
The reception hall, the culture and press offices, the multipurpose room and the embassy are located on the floors above.
The façade’s curvature opens unto Chapultepec Park.
The second part of the building, accessible to a larger public, consists of nine floors and uses the same constructive vocabulary of the main building.
The inner junction follows the patio tradition and juxtaposes stone paving and plants.
