Eric Parry has won the competition to design a new ambassador’s residence for the British Embassy in Beijing. The architect beat a strong shortlist featuring Carmody Groarke, AHMM, Feilden Clegg Bradley and the Manser Practice. The winner was picked last year but had to be kept under wraps during the so-called purdah period before the election.

Tony Whitehead, director of estates at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office, said the brief was to create a modern residence that provides a platform for the ambassador to project Britain’s global influence. He added: “To reflect the scale of our ambition in China, we are looking to provide a state-of-the-art building that will better reflect the image that Britain wants to project and help facilitate our presence in China for many years.”
