Lewis & Hickey Awarded Taiwan Contract For Hilltop Village
Lewis & Hickey is celebrating its first venture into the booming Asia-Pacific residential market, as work will soon begin on a unique luxury residential development in the Taiwan capital, Taipei
Following the architectâ€™s design submission to Taiwan-based property developer Kingland Group, 50 mansion-style homes with a selling price of ÂŁ1-2.5 million are to be built in the up-market residential district of Shing Dian, with the first phase of construction to begin in September 2007.
To be named, Royal Mount, the exclusive development will also incorporate a club house and a number of leisure facilities with landscaped parklands which will all be accessed through security gates.
Edinburgh-based Paul Miele, Lewis & Hickeyâ€™s group chief executive who oversaw the development plans, explained: â€śThis project win demonstrates our true international credentials as one of the worldâ€™s leading architects. We have worked right the way across Europe, the Middle East, into India and now the Asian-Pacific, showcasing our first rate architectural and design work.
â€śOur appointment is testament to the sterling work our architects carry out on a day-to-day basis worldwide and we naturally hope to work with the Kingland Group again in the future.â€ť
Mr Robert Chu, chairman of the Kingland Group, explained Lewis & Hickeyâ€™s selection: â€śWe were looking for an established UK architectural practice offering multi disciplinary services and expertise covering interior design and graphic imaging. In addition, we also required a firm with residential experience teamed with UK historical building knowledge and Lewis & Hickey ticked all the boxes. We are delighted with the designs, both external and internal, and already we are experiencing a huge amount of interest in this new development.â€ť
