House of Sweden, situated on the Potomac River adds a distinguished Scandinavian hint to the Georgetown Harbor in Washington with its modern design and architecture. Although it houses the Embassy of Iceland as well, it is chiefly known for the Swedish Embassy. It also comprises an Event Center and many offices and apartments, which make it a perfect meeting and business place right in the heart of Georgetown.
House of Sweden was officially inaugurated in 2006 as the new representative of Sweden in Washington D.C. It has an exemplary Scandinavian style and architecture, designed by Tomas Hansen and Gert Wingårdh. In addition to the architecture, the place represents Swedish nation’s values like democracy, transparency and openness. In fact, it is the most prominent agent of public diplomacy associated with Sweden in the United States. House of Sweden is owned and maintained through the National Property Board Sweden.
A number of corporate sector organizations and establishments utilize the facilities offered at House of Sweden mostly for meetings, social events, celebrations, conferences, seminars and a lot more. The halls can be rented for such occasions in private capacity as well. Just attending an event or visiting the place is an experience in itself, and can be called a “short trip to Europe” in terms of aesthetics, beauty and the minimalistic design.
