Cluttons Flexible Space recently helped Aedas, the world's fifth-largest architecture firm, acquire a new office in Covent Garden

Aedas have taken 2,000 sq ft at 65 Chandos Place with artworks by London urban artists Phlash, Xenz and Mr Jago being commissioned for the office, reflecting Aedas’ philosophy to embed its offices within the local culture.

In response to the increasing globalisation of property development and number of Aedas’ Asian clients investing in Europe, our London office is well positioned to offer our design services, particularly in high-density, mixed-use developments,” said Chairman Keith Griffiths. “Aedas’ global platform provides international expertise with locally sensitive design.”

The London office will carry out UK and international work and act as a showcase for Aedas’ international projects, targeting overseas investors and developers active in the London market.

Keith Griffiths said: “Over the last ten years, Aedas has grown into one of the largest and most successful international practices, creating a global platform for creative excellence and completing more than 100 projects totalling over 100 million square feet of space. We are keen to be active in locations with increasing demand for high rise, high density residential, commercial and infrastructure developments, and recognise the long-term importance of international cities. The market for international design practices is changing as developers become international. Our realignment reflects this change by ensuring we are present in core markets for our global clients.

Aedas’ 1,400 staff provide architectural, urban, landscape and interior design services from eight countries with 13 global offices at London, Los Angeles, Seattle, Hong Kong, Beijing, Shanghai, Chengdu, Macau, Singapore, New Delhi, Ho Chi Minh City, Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
