Architecture firm Broadway Malyan has opened a new office in Baku, Azerbaijan, with 30 permanent employees.
The new base is a response to a number of large-scale projects in the country, including the 28 May Shopping Mall scheme which is now open.
The 23,000m2 mall comprises a food court, 1,200-seat cinema with retail units and an interior design by the practice.
Meanwhile Broadway Malyan’s Port Baku Residences – a mixed-use project spread over 375,000m2 – recently topped out.
Gary Whittle, practice MD, added: “The office opening is the latest chapter in our successful international growth strategy.
“It will result in a 16-strong global office network, enhance our global reach and ability to partner clients across mature and emerging markets, with projects in 41 countries over the last year.”
