House Of Sweden

In 2006, House of Sweden - a stunning example of contemporary Scandinavian architecture designed by Gert Wingårdh and Tomas Hansen - was inaugurated as the new home of the Embassy of Sweden in Washington D.C. As a physical representation of Swedish values such as openness, transparency and democracy, House of Sweden is the flagship of Swedish public diplomacy in the United States.

The building houses the Embassy of Sweden, the Embassy of Iceland, office suites and an Event Center that features conference and exhibition halls. House of Sweden is owned and managed by the Kingdom of Sweden through the National Property Board Sweden (SFV).
