Tangshan will contain a mixture of hotels, retail, office, leisure and housing on 160,000sq/m of land adjacent to local hot springs whilst the Beijing project will see 150,000sq/m of floorspace stacked inside a 240m high tower.
The work comes on the back of the practices Hong Kong office, which opened just six months ago. In that time the practice has gone on to secure 20 Chinese commissions.
In the UK the practice has been recruiting new staff on the back of new projects such as St Vincent Plaze in Glasgow and Cramlington Hospital in the north-east of England.
