Global architecture, urbanism and design practice Broadway Malyan has acquired Antonio Prado Arquitectura Comercial, an 11-strong architecture and interior design practice based in Santiago, Chile.
The move is part of Broadway Malyan’s strategy to grow its business across the Latin America region, which is seeing it drawing on the cultural and language connections shared by its teams based in Madrid, Lisbon and São Paulo, where it opened an office in 2011.
Antonio Prado Arquitectura Comercial has a strong reputation in the Chilean retail sector, with completed and current projects across the country and a strong client portfolio of leading retail developers and operators, such as GES Corporation and Forever 21.
The team in Chile will headed up by Broadway Malyan Director Jorge Ponce Dawson, who will also continue to lead the practice’s Madrid-based team in Spain, while Antonio Prado will become Director of Architecture and lead the local team.
Broadway Malyan’s projects in Chile include the concept and schematic design for Portal Bio-Bio, a 70,000 sq m commercial centre for retail developer and operator Cencosud, while it has several other ongoing projects across the region, in Argentina, Peru, Colombia and Brazil.
