The Royal Norwegian Embassy won the 2022 Grand Award from the Washington Chapter of the American Institute of Architects (AIA DC.) This renovation project in Washington, DC involved the rehabilitation of a 1933 Italianate ambassador’s residence and 1970’s constructed chancery. The design honors Norway’s rich heritage of woodworking, shipbuilding, and fisheries by incorporating architectural and structural elements that reflect these traditions.
Congratulations to our design and construction partners for this project: Fentress Architects and Whiting Turner Contracting Company. SK&A provided building enclosure services and hygrothermal analysis studies, as well as the new structural design. We commend the SK&A team members who contributed to this project: Hakan Onel, PE, SE, Daniel Cocciardi, PE, SE, and Sarah Stocks Gallis, PE, SE.
