PLP Architecture is considering opening an office in South East Asia on the back of growing workloads in the region.

The London-based practice, which already has offices in Tokyo and Beijing, is thought to be eyeing Singapore as a likely new studio location.

It is working on “several” mixed-use schemes there and has just been appointed to design its first high-rise residential project in the city state.

The 21-storey planted tower, called Park Nova, will also be its first housing development in Asia.

Standing on slender columns and heavily planted, it will contain 54 flats, arranged so each has 270-degree views.

The 100m tall building, on Orchard Boulevard, an area of the city state once home to orchards, will also contain various amenity spaces. The developer is Shun Tak Holdings in collaboration with Hong Kong practice P&T Group.

PLP was controversially born from KPF’s breakaway London office in 2008.
