U.S. Consulate General Curaçao
Knot’s wayfinding strategy and signage design services are part of a larger consultant team designing the new Consulate General in Willemstad, Curaçao. The design team is creating an inspirational U.S. platform for diplomacy that is positioned to be a symbol of cooperation, friendship, and progress into the future. The new Consulate General’s design includes photovoltaic panels, sun control and shading devices on the façade, and indigenous landscape plantings. These features will contribute to achieving a goal of LEED Silver certification from The U.S. Green Building Council. The new project retains and improves upon the historic Roosevelt House and existing Consulate building to provide enhanced opportunities for public and community events. The design respects local culture and the historic Dutch Caribbean architectural context of Curaçao while enhancing viewsheds from the adjacent UNESCO World Heritage zone and honoring local planning and development priorities.
