British Deputy High Commission, Chennai
Client – British Government
Architect – Jordan Bateman Associates
Area – 3 acres
Cost – 2 crores
Construction year –  1990-2000

The site was part of an earlier botanical garden, hence has plenty of mature trees of cassia family besides a few mango trees.

The existing building designed in early 1950s is the residence for the Deputy High Commissioner. The project was taken up in two stages with two varying approaches. The residential area landscape is designed as a part private open court for the family and a large banquet lawn for the formal entertainment.

While the front chancery building in front, is a modern contemporary design executed in the year 2003 – 2005. So the landscape is designed as a blend of modern forms with traditional materials. The granite boulders on one side of the entry path and finished granite cubes on the other give a sharp contrast and is an experience to pass through.
