A Beacon to Freedom
and Openness

United States Embassy
Moscow, Russia

“The new office building metaphorically conveys the freedom and openness of the United States while respecting the culture and environment of Moscow. Its design represents the best of American architectural quality and technology as we step further into the 21st century.”

Donnie Seale
US Department of State

This design complies with strict technical and security criteria while adding a contemporary landmark to Moscow’s skyline.

A partially constructed base building served as the original foundation for this striking, yet secure, government facility in the heart of Moscow. The project included a vertical addition and renovation to the abandoned base structure, as well as new construction.

The facility is equipped with special features providing the maximum level of security, including the most advanced security systems, shielding and blast protection available.

The extreme sensitivity of the project required all A/E contractors to obtain a facility clearance. Team members with access to classified information were required to maintain top-secret personnel clearances.
