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 architect’s design submission to Taiwan-based property developer Kingland Group, 50 mansion-style homes with a selling price of £1-2.5 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 & Hickey’s group chief executive who oversaw the development plans, explained: “This project win demonstrates our true international credentials as one of the world’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.
“Our 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.”
Mr Robert Chu, chairman of the Kingland Group, explained Lewis & Hickey’s selection: “We 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.”
