Creation Design and Architecture has been appointed to create concepts for a 16-storey building in the Ukraine.
The consultancy has been commissioned by US developer Tracey Equities, which is planning to develop the Kiev building into offices and apartments for Western businesses.
Creation’s concept includes a new roof structure which will add another floor to the building, as well as two new restaurants, bar, supermarket and shopping area. The consultancy is also to design the entrance and reception and all public areas, exterior landscaping, graphics and signs.
The group won the job “partly through recommendation and partly in competition with two other consultancies”, says Creation managing director Lachie Munro.
“The developers also wanted to work with a UK consultancy – for convenience as much as anything else,” comments Munro.
