Four new members of staff have joined Grant Associates’ Singapore office adding international expertise and experience to the existing team led by Carly Lamb, Senior Associate and Aymara Izquiel-Langley, Senior Landscape Architect – both key players in the creation of Gardens by the Bay.
The new strategic appointments include:
In addition to masterplanning and designing Gardens by the Bay, Grant Associates has a significant portfolio of work in Asia including landscape and public realm design for the Capitol Development and Institute of Technical Education in Singapore, the Tun Razak Exchange and Bukit Jelutong in Kuala Lumpur and more strategic planning for the Endau Rompin National Park in Malaysia. The company is also currently working on the newVietnamese-German University in Binh Duong Province, Vietnam; and the master plan for the Royal Botanic Gardens and Public Domain in Sydney, Australia in addition to a number of projects in China, India and Indonesia.
With these new strategic appointments, Grant Associates is keen to build on its success in the region, whilst helping redefine the role of Landscape Architecture in Asia into a discipline that fundamentally influences the form, character and life of cities and places.
Andrew Grant, Director at Grant Associates said: “Singapore is an exciting place where design and environment are high on the agenda of new thinking. It is at the heart of one of the busiest and most ambitious development regions in the world and is leading the way in environmentally innovative planning and design. We’re keen to be an influential part of this journey and believe Singapore offers the perfect location and business environment to allow us to grow as a company.”
