Foster + Partners appoints new head of interior design

Foster + Partners has hired Lee Hallman, previously Head of Design at Candy & Candy, and two of his former design directors, to lead the practice’s Interiors Group.

While interior design has always been a vital part of the design process, the practice has more recently developed a dedicated Interiors Group. The specialist group works closely with the architects and the in-house disciplines of industrial design, workplace consultancy and materials research to bring wide-ranging expertise to every project. The practice’s interiors range from private houses to office towers, from art galleries to industrial buildings, and from yachts to a fleet of executive jets.

Lee Hallman has more than 20 years of wide-ranging experience, including six years with Candy & Candy, where he led a range of high-end residential and hospitality commissions. This move marks his return to Foster + Partners – he was previously a partner with the practice, and worked for fourteen years on a broad range of projects, from the McLaren Technology Centre to Jameson House mixed-use tower in Vancouver.

The two former Candy & Candy design directors, Maria Mallalieu and Constance Staib, will
join the office as associate partners.

“This is a fantastic opportunity to return to Foster + Partners with the benefit of experience working for clients at the highest level,” said Hallman. “Over the past six years I have enjoyed working on some of the world’s most luxurious residential developments and projects for private clients. I am now looking forward to integrating my experience into the Interiors Group, and contributing to the creative process for an exciting range of international projects.”
