Canadian Embassy in Rome

Rome, Italy

The Canadian Government recently completed a major refurbishment of a 19th century villa for their new Embassy in Rome, Italy. Historically a part of the Villa Grazioli, the new Canadian Embassy is located near the Villa Borghese in central Rome. As the initial phase of a more comprehensive master plan for the grounds, the landscape immediately surrounding the Embassy was completely redesigned, respecting the historic sensibilities of the site but bringing in a refined contemporary layer to suit modern day functions and to harmonize with the contemporary approach taken to the interior of the building itself by the Italian architects.
