Chapman
United States Embassy San Salvador, El Salvador

This master plan and schematic design for the new United States Embassy in San Salvador, El Salvador incorporates many divergent goals. The embassy compound is a campus accommodating a variety of functions and is intended to represent the openness and dignity of the United States government within a foreign context. It also must subtly incorporate numerous security strategies in an increasingly unpredictable international environment.

The 26 acre complex, zoned for public, private and semi-private realms was defined and linked by landscaped courtyards and a central arcaded pedestrian plaza. The northern public zone focuses on a large, central plaza and is defined by the Chancery to the north, the U. S. Aid Building to the east, and the Ambassador’s residence to the south.

These buildings, as well the more private residential southern zone, were designed to contextually respond to the strong local tradition of Spanish Colonial style architecture.
