The new headquarters of the Embassy of Peace is in a prime location just off the Elbasan Road at the Eastern entrance of Tirana, near the Great Park. The steep terrain on which the building is built was challenging, and the slope and the dense urban conditions influenced the basic elements of its design.
Conceptually, the building has been treated as a “House of Peace”, where the primary and simple form of the building has undergone a sculptural process of cuts and clefts to give it a contemporary and dynamic appearance. These features include a large panoramic roof terrace, as well as a Impressive main entrance to the building. Other distinctive features allow for the entry of natural light into the below ground floors, which are used for offices and conference rooms.
The white color symbolizes the purity of the peace that exists and should exist among people, whilst the red color in the clefts made over the building emphasize the fragility of peace. This contrast between the two colors takes on different appearances as it intensifies or fades with the movement of the sun during the day, whilst nighttime illumination presents a different perspective.
