Ryder Makes Key Interior Design Appointments
The award winning international practice, with offices in Hong Kong, the UK and Canada, is expanding its offering in interior design to compliment the architectural team.
Ryder deliver architecture, placemaking and interior design across a diverse range of sectors. The two new leadership appointments with a track record of award winning interiors in the commercial and hospitality sectors, will handle increased demand for interior design solutions in Hong Kong and Asia.
Ryder was established in the UK in 1953 by architects Gordon Ryder and Peter Yates, who worked with Le Corbusier and Ove Arup before meeting in the office of Berthold Lubetkin. Now employing over 150 architects and designers, the practice is enjoying continued expansion and international connectivity founded on its passionate, pioneering and collaborative approach to Everything architecture.
Newly appointed interior design director, Milena Paleva, commented, “This is an exciting time to be part of Ryder as it further expands its footprint in interior design. Combining the team’s international expertise across sectors will allow a holistic approach to create high performance interiors which deliver the best return on investment.”
Ryder established their team in Central, Hong Kong in 2014 and has since enjoyed organic expansion and a growing market presence through BIM enabled workflow and holistic service delivery.
Richard Dorkin, partner at Ryder said, “The new appointments will compliment and enhance our architectural team, allowing us to deliver fresh ideas and best in class delivery across our architecture and interior design.”
The new partners have been appointed to continue to build on the growing expertise of Ryder across an increasingly diverse sector and geographic base.
A year on from the journey to Hong Kong, Richard Dorkin reflects on the practice’s past 12 months in Asia.
