Welcoming 2016, Celebrating 2015

We wish everyone a Happy New Year and look forward to another year collaborating on exciting projects and celebrating great design.

2015 saw the official opening of our London Studio on Foley Street in Fitzrovia, the completed restoration of the iconic house and previous residence of our founder, Jørgen Varming, in collaboration with Realdania and architect Kent Pedersen in Copenhagen. In Sydney we were awarded the significant task of developing the concept and schematic designs for the upgrades to the Sydney Opera House Concert Hall with ARM Architecture as well as mechanical and electrical services design for the ground-breaking Sydney Modern project. We enjoyed participating in the annual HKBIM Conference with our views on BIM in project management in Hong Kong and the 25th Annual Conference of the International Association of Museum Facility Administrators (IAMFA) in Chicago.

A number of new appointments across our global studios were made to support our unique development plan, welcoming Fredrik Emil Nors in Copenhagen, Simm Steel, Tiadra Simpson Ben Savage, Arshpreet Kaur, Melissa Thorpe and Baoying Tong in Sydney and Anu Anna George and Isabel Lo in Hong Kong.
