Blanc de Bierges: British Embassy, Doha, Qatar

  • British-Embassy-Doha-front-entrance

About this project

Blanc de Bierges was selected by David Jarvis Associates when they were engaged as landscaping architects on the British Embassy project in Doha, Qatar.

Our team designed and manufactured a large amount of standard and bespoke cast stone components for the exterior landscaping.

It was important that the exterior stonework complemented the building façade, which is clad in polished granite, with flush-faced windows creating a sheer surface.  The building is  punctuated by a fully glazed entrance, and the granite can be seen to carry through the interior, as though the building were cut from solid stone.

The cast stone components that were supplied included:

The British Embassy in Doha, which opened in 2008, includes the Embassy offices, ancillary buildings and the Ambassador’s residence. The site is part of a purpose-built diplomatic centre.  The physical parameters of the scheme set some unique challenges.

 

“Whatever was chosen would have to meet the exacting requirements for this prestigious project and prove durable, attractive and capable of dealing with the harsh and corrosive environmental conditions in Doha.

 

The choice quickly boiled down to Blanc de Bierges which met all of the criteria and was selected not only for the vast majority of the paving but some of the external seating as well. The finished product has met all our expectations.”

Jim Meadowcroft – Architect

Tim Stimpson, the former British & Irish Lions rugby player paid a visit to the British Embassy in Doha, to celebrate British-manufactured products being installed.

Tim discovered that Blanc de Bierges high quality paving was selected to complement the Embassy’s clean and elegant appearance.

“It is always good to see British products being used overseas and the paving really fits with the classic yet contemporary look of the building.

 

It was a privilege to be able to visit today and present the Embassy with a British Lions rugby shirt on behalf of Blanc de Bierges”
