Welcome to our new Embassy! Take a look at the pictures and get an insight to all the sustainable efforts made to reduce water waste and energy loss.

For the new building, efforts were made to retain the original compound and overall architectural appearance.

High sustainability and environmental ambitions were set for this project by the architect.

The new building presents a fusion of Norwegian and Indian design elements through the interior, the furniture and the architecture. However, it is characterized by the adaptation to local climate and Indian environmental concerns.

The building itself is also adapted to the local climate: Shielding of the fa├žade keeps the sun out of the office spaces, which reduces the need for air conditioning, the rooftop is painted in white to keep the heat out, by reflecting light and not absorbing it.

We produce 200kWh per day from solar power! For the electricity purchased, Statkraft, a leading company in hydropower internationally and Europe's largest generator of renewable energy, delivers I-REC certificates (International Certificate Standard for Renewable Energy) in order to ensure clean, green and sustainable energy.
