Botschaft des Königreichs der Niederlande
The new Dutch Embassy - or Embassy of the Kingdom of The Netherlands to give it its official name - is located in the former East Berlin by the side of the River Spree.
Completed in 2003, the embassy was designed by Rotterdam architect Rem Koolhaas. It takes the form of a glass cube 27 metres on each site, creating enough space for the building to be constructed in the form of a free-standing villa complete with garden and reception courtyard. Inside it has eight floors, which are linked in such a way that they create a total of 24 levels connected by a spiralling hall.
