Henning Larsen Architects opens office in Hong Kong

International design studio Henning Larsen Architects has opened its seventh office with a new addition in Hong Kong. The office will focus on schemes in China and South East Asia and is already working on a project in Yuhang.

Speaking on the opening of the Hong Kong studio, CEO Mette Kynne Frandsen said: “It is part of our strategy to seek new projects globally. The office in Hong Kong is a milestone in the international development of the company that will strengthen our position on the global market. Hong Kong is a bridge to China, which is experiencing strong growth.

“Hong Kong is very dynamic and a great place for creative companies. Scandinavian architecture is well-known for its high quality and sustainability. This is in demand in Asia. Elva Tang and Claude Bøjer Godefroy are heading the office. Both of them are architects born global and with a vast knowledge of Asia”.
