Tina Qiu is a Senior Associate Partner at PLP Architecture. She has considerable experience working within the commercial office, retail, residential, hotel and mixed use sectors, as well as aviation and educational projects. Tina is involved in projects from early conceptual and feasibility stages through to tender and completion. Her involvement in a number of the practice’s important London projects has helped her to develop extensive experience in public consultation and engagement with local authorities.
Currently, for The Grosvenor Estates and Stow Capital Partners, Tina is leading a team for the redevelopment of a 43,000 sqft flagship store on Oxford Street for Adidas. The development seeks to promote the Adidas lifestyle, whilst enhancing the existing building fabric. The scheme has been granted planning permission and is anticipated to be completed in late 2018.. Additionally, Tina is the team leader and primary client liaison for a new hotel in Fitzrovia in the City of Westminster and a mixed use scheme in the City of London.
Prior to this, Tina led the design and delivery of planning application for a renovation and conversion of a building into high-end residential development on Great Peter Street in the Smith Square Conservation Area and within proximity to the House of Parliament. The design retains and enhances the interesting architectural features of the existing facade and introduces a new rolled roof into this sensitive context.
Other key achievements within PLP include the successful competition entry for the new Cleveland Clinic in London, the Assima project for 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, which was completed in 2015.
