Tina Qiu, RIBA


Tina is a Director with extensive experience in the commercial office, retail, residential, hotel and mixed-use sectors in the UK and Singapore. In particular, she has specialised experiences in the major renovation of complex early twentieth-century buildings in Mayfair and St James's. She has been involved in all stages of work, from early concept and feasibility through to tender and completion. As a team member for several of the practice’s key London projects, Tina has worked extensively on public consultations and local authority engagement in the City of London, Westminster and Singapore. She is currently leading the design and project team of a luxury residential development in the Orchard Region, Singapore.


In London, Tina led the team on the design and redevelopment of a key flagship retail space at 425 Oxford Street in Central London. The project involved a complex demolition behind a retained 1930s façade and creates dynamic volumes internally for a new lifestyle-focused store of a major international brand. The construction process was completed with retained tenancies on the upper office floors throughout. Elsewhere in Mayfair, Tina led the design and team on a high-spec bespoke office suite. The project completely rethinks the ground floor of a period Georgian building, transforming it into an intimidate and efficient space that emphasis understated luxury and refined durability. Tina is also the Lead Architect and primary client liaison for a new luxury office development on Brook Street in Mayfair.  The project includes bespoke interior design of the associated amenities spaces, which is now under construction next to our recently-completed headquarters building for the client, Clivedale.


Tina led the design and delivery of our planning application for a renovation and conversion of an outdated office building into a high-end residential development in a sensitive conservation area near the Houses of Parliament. She was responsible for the design of a new riverfront mixed-use complex in the City of London. Tina has also helped to craft a number of our successful competition entries, including those for the Cleveland Clinic in London, on another sensitive site facing Buckingham Palace Gardens, the Assima project, a large mixed-use complex in the Central Business District of Kuwait, and Hung Luen Road, a mixed-use development on a prominent waterfront site in Hong Kong.


Before joining the practice, Tina worked with architectural practices in London, where she was involved in various projects within the aviation and education sectors. Tina received her Postgraduate Diploma in Architecture at the Bartlett School of Architecture, University College London. She completed her MA Architecture at the Royal College of Art and is currently an ongoing mentor to students as a part of our Mentor Scheme. Tina received her BArch from the University of Nottingham.
