Aedas expands global brand

International design firm Aedas has announced that UK architectural practice RHWL, along with its specialist cultural and public building subsidiary Arts Team, has joined its network.

The two concerns will now be known as Aedas RHWL and Aedas Arts Team and as part of the move, Peter Shaw joins the Global Board of Aedas and continues to lead Aedas RHWL whilst Barry Pritchard leads Aedas Arts Team.

“RHWL has strong experience in urban planning and commercial development in London and the UK and is one of the most prominent European arts and culture architects. Aedas RHWL will support our Asian clients and mixed commercial and residential work in London,” said Keith Griffiths, Chairman of Aedas.

“We are also keen to work on arts and cultural commissions in the expanding Chinese market and will be introducing Aedas Arts Team to this territory.”

Shaw added: “We are delighted to be joining Aedas and look forward to further developing our commercial and arts design skills in Europe, and bringing these skills to Asian markets through Aedas’ existing network.

“We believe the two practices share common values of design quality and delivering a high standard of service to clients, while having a complementary distribution of sector and geographic capability.”
