Malabo U.S. Embassy Compound

Formerly a heavily forested cocoa plantation, the acquired site is isolated from utility infrastructure as a nearly self-sufficient compound. Prime power generation, rainwater collection, wastewater irrigation and other energy recovery methods will support the eight new buildings including a new office building, Deputy Chief of Mission residence, Chief of Mission residence, six staff residences, and a recreation facility. Materials of the residential compound draw from a contemporary design of stucco, limestone cladding, and hardwood rain screens.
