Belgrade New U.S. Embassy Compound
Located on a site adjacent to the King's Palace, this new embassy compound is bordered by a Serbian military compound to the west, and diplomatic complexes and high-end residential to the north and east. Due to the historic nature of the neighborhood, the design requires approval from the Serbian Institute for the Protection of Cultural Heritage. Designed with contemporary façades that respond to the progressive, forward-looking ideology of Serbia, the embassy will utilize curtain wall systems, aluminum composite wall panels, and granite stone cladding to give the buildings a sleek, modern appearance.

Department of State Perimeter Security
The perimeter security improvement plan, a design concept approved by the National Capital Planning Commission (NCPC) and the Commission of Fine Arts, will secure the Harry S Truman Building on the 11.8-acre site, protect employees and visitors, and improve the aesthetics of the streetscape. Five new security pavilions with green roofs will serve as screening facilities to enter the building. A landscaped protective perimeter, consisting of attractive fences and garden walls, will enhance general security. C Street will be redesigned as a boulevard with restricted vehicular access, and shaded tree-lined sidewalks.
