The Danish Embassy in Riyadh is designed by Henning Larsen Architects and opened in 1988. The Embassy includes a Chancellery with attached residences situated in a small, closed complex. The architecture is based on a simple, Scandinavian design, while the yellow ochre and white corner ornamentations are inspired by the local area and Arabian desert sand.
