Embassy of Sweden in central Havana

The Swedish Embassy building stands on Calle 34, a street in central Havana, Cuba, and was built for Norwegian Konrad Skarbrevik in 1951. He was a businessman and Danish Honorary Consul General in Cuba.

When Skarbrevik was due to move to the USA in 1989, the Swedish State purchased the building from him to house its own Embassy. Swedish firm REX Construction AB was commissioned to make the building fit for its new purpose. The refit began in February 1999, and the Embassy moved into its new premises in August that year.

The two-storey building has façades in pink rendered brick, and houses the chancery offices, a garage and a guest apartment. The 1350 square meters plot is leased from the Cuban State, while the building is owned by the Swedish State. The lease runs until 7 July 2039, but with an option to extend it for another 25 years.
