British Council Khartoum

Khartoum, Sudan

Refurbishment of the existing premises grew from the need to reduce solar gain and rationalise circulation. A new escape stair runs behind a brise soleil wall built from simple concrete blocks 'on edge' chosen for their local availability. Internally the building was completely reorganised to provide better library and seminar facilities on the ground floor and new office accommodation over the first floor.
