Foster + Partners signed Lee Hallman, former Head of Design at Candy & Candy, to lead the practice's Interiors Group.
"We are pleased to welcome Lee back to the practice - this important step will enhance the service we can offer our clients," commented Mouzhan Majidi, Chief Executive.
"Interior design has always been a vital aspect of our work, as we do not make a distinction between the interior and exterior experience - every detail is considered.
Lee was the perfect choice to lead the Interiors Group. Having previously been a senior member of the team, not only does he have strong relationships and a great understanding of our integrated approach to design, but he has also worked directly for clients.
Leading design and delivering high-end interiors for the past six years has given him a valuable insight into our clients' needs and aspirations."
Hallman has more than 20 years of wide-ranging experience, including six years with Candy & Candy, where he led a range of high-end residential and hospitality commissions.
This move marks his return to Foster + Partners - he was previously a partner with the practice, and worked for fourteen years on a broad range of projects, from the McLaren Technology Centre to Jameson House mixed-use tower in Vancouver.
The Interiors Group is further enhanced by Maria Mallalieu and Constance Staib, who join the office as associate partners.
