Kung Hei Fat Choi!

With great anticipation for the year of the dog, we look back at an exciting year passed with new appointments, including the external lighting design for The University of Hong Kong's Main Building with AD+RG, Wilkinson Eyre and Purcell and lighting concepts for Sai Kung Hotel with Aedas and Alex Choi Design & Partners. Our sustainability specialists have supported Quad in developing strategies for a residential development project in Shantou, China and a masterplan development in Pingshan, China.

In the past year we strengthened our team with the appointment of Associate Jonny Perks (previously based in Sydney) and Lighting Designer Zafer Dandashi, addressing the market's increasing demand for higher building performance and specialist lighting design that provides cohesive environments within a fast-developing city.

We were recently appointed to work with Atkins (SNC-Lavalin) in providing sustainability masterplanning design services for the Bayshore precinct in Singapore. The project will create a number of diverse micro-communities tied together by pedestrian-friendly connections and we are excited to contribute to the vision of making the streets a destination.

Another successful masterplan competition with Atkins will be kicking off this year in Malaysia, while we keep our fingers crossed for the outcome of the 2nd stage of the Taoyuan Museum of Arts competition where we are part of one of the four shortlisted teams with JJ Pan and MVRDV Architects.

We wish all of our friends, clients and collaborators a happy, prosperous Lunar New Year!
