Embassy of Islamic Republic of Iran in London

Address: 16 Princes Gate, Knightsbridge, west London, England, UK

Design: Daneshgar Architects

Statement by the architects, Daneshgar Architects:

Iranian Embassy Building London

In order to have a fair judgment about our design, you need to consider all aspects we have incorporated in the design. One image which is made public in internet doesn’t say the reality about our design.

Basically, we have made local researches for a long time before starting the design. As an architect who is working in one of the most sensible cities like Vienna with much conservation areas, we totally respected the area, analyzed the existing facades of queen’s gate terraces and mews arches, etc and we translated those historic elements into a new modern design. If people see the whole design process we have followed rather then the only image in internet & newspapers, they may believe these claims.

We claim that the form of development proposed, in terms of is site coverage and building’s scale, is consistent with the surrounding density of development. The amount of development proposed takes into account the constraints of the site itself and the need to respect the amenties of adjoining occupiers in terms of sunlight, daylightand the presence of the Grade II* listed church in townscape terms.

I believe the problem is not with the design of the building but more probably with the function of it being used as an Embassy. If we copy the same form of existing buildings at the Queen’s Gate, the problem will continue to exist.
