CANADIAN CONSULATE GENERAL, RIO DE JANEIRO
Occupying a floor in a newly built condominium office tower in Rio the Canadian Consulate was designed to provide a transparent, positve and progressive image to the public while creating a secure facility for consular staff. The offices are organized in a linear fashion extending in two directions from a glass central waiting area. This waiting room can be opened into a large multipurpose meeting room without breaching the line of security that separates the consular offices from public spaces. Local staff occupy one of the two wings of offices while Canadian citizens generally occupy the other wing. The project was executed from Brazil in conjunction with External Affairs Canada.
