Keppie secures £75m China commission
Keppie has been commissioned to design a series of 30 “corporate clubhouses” near the Great Wall of China, hot on the heels of winning design work for a 60 storey mixed use block at Zhnogda Plaza, Chengdu.

As well as making inroads into the Far East the practice has also met with success in the near north, securing the contract to design a £58m Orkney Schools project.

Keppie has also recently completed the new regional headquarters for SEPA in Aberdeen. Led by SEPA, the project was developed collaboratively with their partners Scottish Natural Heritage and the Joint Nature Conservation Committee.

David Ross, Design Director at Keppie said: “As well as successes here in the UK, we have also continued to establish ourselves further afield, especially in the Far East.

“From our Hong Kong base we have had the opportunity to work on a number of unique projects since completing the design for the Community Theatre in Huangshan early last year.

“China is a fascinating country and the diversity of issues facing it makes it an extremely exciting place for architects to work.”

Did I imagine it? Were there not some negative comments about the quality of Keppie's work here yesterday? Mind you, no-one ever said Urban Realm was a democracy where people could express their opinions.

Your eyes do not deceive you. We've just completed a server switch which has unfortunately led to some comments/blog posts made on Mon/Tues being left in limbo on the old server. Will see if we can get them back.
