Ferrari World architect opens Malaysia office

Benoy, the architecture firm behind the landmark Ferrari World Abu Dhabi, has opened an office in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The new studio adds to Benoy’s existing eight offices in Abu Dhabi, London, Newark, Mumbai, Shanghai, Beijing, Singapore and Hong Kong.

The Benoy team in Kuala Lumpur will be led by Richard Lee, associate director.

Lee commented: “I am delighted that Benoy will be strengthening its presence in Asia.  Notable project wins in recent months have driven this move and encouraged us to put down firmer roots in Malaysia, so that we can develop our in-country service and client relationship management.”

Simon Blore, managing director for Asia remarked: “This is an exciting time for Benoy. This year we are celebrating 65 years of operations and 10 years since we opened our first office in Asia.”

Opened in December 2010, Ferrari World Abu Dhabi is the world’s largest indoor theme park.
