Maccreanor Lavington wins housing jobs in China and Russia

  • Comment

The international arm of Maccreanor Lavington Architects – known as MLA+ – has won two design competitions for new residential schemes in China and Russia respectively

Planned to start on site in 2016, both schemes will see former industrial areas transformed into new residential districts.

China’s largest residential developer, Vanke China has chosen the firm for a 150,000m² scheme in Shenzhen.

The project in the city’s former periphery at Liuxiandong will deliver small residential units for single professionals alongside assisted living facilities for the elderly.

Sports facilities, a medical centre, day-care centre, performance arts space, social area and quiet gardens will all be included.

MLA+ has also been appointed to design a 4,000-unit residential district for Russian developer PSN Group in Moscow.

The Donetskaya scheme will create a new neighbourhood on a former logistics and warehousing site on the banks of the Moskva River.

A kindergarten, school, sports centre, retail units and offices will also be included.

Launched three years ago, the international arm of the London and Rotterdam-based studio now has offices in Shanghai, St Petersburg and Rio de Janeiro.

According to a statement from the firm: ‘These two new acquisitions mark another significant step in the company’s development and build on the extensive residential experience of Maccreanor Lavington within the UK and the Netherlands, as well as the local market expertise of its senior staff.’

The practice has also designed two residential towers in Chengdu which are already under construction.
