The Embassy is situated near Lazienski Park and combines the chancery and ambassador's residence. The objective was a design that reflects the Dutch tradition of transparency and openness. Inspired by the Baroque style of Tylman van Gameren, a Dutch architect who influenced Polish architecture in the 17th century, the chancery is designed to be light and translucent. Retaining most of the trees, the new complex radiates a park-like quality. The residence is conceived as a villa in a park, its stone exterior reinforcing the concept of an independent element in the environment. A courtyard between the buildings allows views out into the landscape and a feature gate with an organic design combines with a glazed screen to create a second layer to the chancery. Natural stone loggias connect this 'open' outer wall to the exterior envelope of the building. These elements mediate between the street and the new embassy. As a result, the Embassy is both part of and enclosed by its surroundings.
