Alumnus of the University of Hong Kong and an RLPer since 1983. Andy has worked on so many projects, it is impossible to choose a favourite.

#DesignHappierLife

Expertise: Design-oriented projects, large and small, with a particular passion for super complex TODs.

In 1998, Anthony came to RLP as an alumnus of Columbia University and the University of Southern California. In his youth, Anthony was inspired by his cousin, an interior designer, to begin drawing houses. Of the many projects on which Anthony has worked, the HKYWCA Sydney Leong Holiday Lodge is his number one. This was his first design project at RLP and the one which established his career. This humble but architecturally brilliant building is functional, striking and blends perfectly into its natural surroundings.

It's no coincidence that Anthony loves the outdoors – hiking, nature walks and especially orienteering – his home is actually filled with orienteering trophies his has won over the years!

Expertise: Super high-rise towers and full-suite architectural services – from design and statutory submission to construction documentation and contract administration.

Arthur has had an instinctive flair for design since he was young. A graduate of the University of Tasmania, he joined RLP in 2010, taking his design instincts into the professional world to provide stylistic solutions to urban challenges. His work on the Tianjin Chow Tai Fook Finance Centre was nothing short of masterful – in addition to creating an iconic building, he built close ties with the project team, consultants and the client’s team as they worked together to reshape and rehabilitate an entire city district, turning it into a place where people not only want to work and live, but gather and enjoy themselves.

Arthur’s recipe for proper work-life balance includes a large amount of travelling and plenty of artisanal coffee.

Since joining RLP in 2008, he has worked feverishly to change the world with own hands – architecture is his way of making his ideas real and contributing to building a better world.

#DesignGreenerLife

Expertise: Comprehensive residential and commercial developments, institutional and educational facilities in Hong Kong and mainland China.

Matt loves master planning and retail development, but his heart lies with design-oriented projects. An alumnus of the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Matt already had a deep affection for practical architectural designs before joining RLP in 2011. This is why his most-loved project is Courtyard Residence, a unique green residential tower in heart of densely-developed Mongkok in Kowloon. Beautiful and practical, to Matt, this project perfectly illustrates how sustainability and development can work together in harmony.

His affection for practicality spills over into his personal life: his favourite pastime is playing snooker – determining the correct angles necessary to win every game.

#DesignHappierLife

Expertise: Taking a design from the intangible to the tangible and realising tiny details.

A graduate of the University of Hong Kong, Eugene became part of RLP in 2001. He takes a philosophical approach to design, believing that there are no fixed answers in the architectural world, rather, everything is a combination of creativity, experience and memory. This is why he enjoyed working on Larvotto so much – working with essentially a blank canvas and designing a unique interior plan complemented by a floor-to-ceiling curtain wall.

Eugene describes himself as a foodie with a strong mahjong-loving streak.

#DesignGreenerLife

Expertise: Well-known for his work in project design and development, particularly in mainland China. His key strengths are the ability to produce innovative solutions that overcome constraints, and deliver projects of the highest quality and design standards.

An alumnus of the University of Hong Kong, Guymo joined RLP in 1995. Before that, he studied art history in high school, falling in love with the Baroque style at first sight. Since then, this has been his core driver: finding successful designs which touch people and connect with their souls. This happened with Integral in Guilin – a project in which all the stars aligned: it was a successful, idealistic design with the right client and right team in the right place at the right time.

Guymo has also kept his artistic streak – to gain inspiration or solve a problem, he enjoys wandering the streets of Hong Kong, listening to music and absorbing the city’s energy.

An alumnus of the Bartlett School of Architecture at University College London, Kenneth came to RLP in 2010. His most favourite projects are those that provide a lively, happy environment for users. Both Victoria Dockside and Salisbury Garden met these criteria – these are complex mixed-use development and regeneration projects which stretched his skills and allowed him to work with a large group of international consultants who have since become his friends.

#DesignSmarterLife

Expertise: Luxury residential developments, complicated mixed-use developments.

A graduate of the University of Hong Kong, Alfred joined RLP in 2001 and has since amassed over 20 years of architectural experience in local projects. His desire to create better living spaces for one and all drove him to become an architect and he still loves designing homes for people. His favourite project is Larvotto, a residential project on the Ap Lei Chau waterfront. Why? Because this was the first project he worked closely with his wife from design to completion. They also got married while working on this project.

Alfred and his wife also love travelling. Their safari tour to Kenya and Tanzania was an unforgettable experience for both of them.

#DesignHealthierLife

Expertise: Civic architecture for social, cultural, leisure, and sports enjoyment.

An alumnus of both the University of Hong Kong and the University of Houston and an RLPer since 1992, Peter has taken training in art since he was a boy. He has both an artistic and a poetic sense for architectural design, meaning that projects under his direction not only achieve design excellence, they have also won numerous awards. His most memorable RLP project so far is the Ko Shan Theatre New Wing – the first purpose-built theatre for Cantonese Opera and the first public theatre designed by a private practice in Hong Kong. Its design ethos, being “a theatre in the park” and “a park in the theatre” has set new design standards for future theatres in Hong Kong.

Peter has green fingers, which he modestly says are “probably genetically inherited from his father and grandfather.”

#DesignGreenerLife

Expertise: Projects in mainland China – from the concept stage to the detailed design stage, including super high-rise, mega-comprehensive developments and corporate campuses.

Henry’s passion for architecture began as a child, when he learned drawing and photography from his uncle. He began taking photos and making sketches of the streets of Hong Kong soon he was off! A graduate of the University of Hong Kong, he joined RLP in 2011 and immediately began working on numerous large projects. His favourite? Integral in Guilin, our unique industrial eco-garden project. He cites the synergy and teamwork he enjoyed with the client’s highly-motivated project management team as they worked together to create a beautiful, meaningful place.

In his spare time, Henry reads and writes fiction, escaping to other gardens – those in his own imagination.

Alex has been with RLP since 2015. An alma mater of the University of New South Wales, he has always been inspired by the geometry of nature in all its beauty and wondrous complexity. His pièce de résistance is the magnificent Xiqu Centre, the first modern theatre in the world designed for the art and performance of Xiqu (Chinese opera). Alex particularly enjoyed leading the joint RLP-Bing Thom international team as they delivered this extremely complex and difficult project within extraordinarily tight budget and time constraints, eventually creating an iconic landmark for the West Kowloon Cultural Hub.

He has worked on numerous projects since arriving at RLP in 1995. One of his most cherished projects is the beautiful Institute of Healthcare Campus at the Hong Kong Metropolitan University.
