Brock Carmichael Asia
Through Brock Carmichael Asia, our practice brings its experience and expertise to China and Hong Kong. Established in 2011, it provides our international clients with the reassurance of dealing with a trusted, familiar name to help deliver their global business aspirations.
A limited company registered in Hong Kong, the practice is led by managing director Alfred Yeung, an equity partner of Brock Carmichael Architects LLP, acting as the local point of contact for clients throughout South East Asia.
Alfred brings over 20 years real estate and project management experience, including a substantial global property portfolio that covers both the United Kingdom and Asia. In addition, he has built a real business reputation after returning to Hong Kong in 1993 to develop a career in transport infrastructure, while delivering large commercial and leisure projects on both the design and client side.
Acting as general manager for property development at Kowloon Canton Railway Corporation Alfred was responsible for a US$30bn portfolio, before becoming group property development director of Melco International later where he would oversee leisure resorts and real estate in Macau, China, The Philippines, South Korea, Kazakhstan and Russia.
Since 2011, our Anglo-Asian alliance has led to some incredible projects being realised, with seamless, integrated and cost effective architectural and masterplanning solutions at the heart of each and every one.
The Octagon Partnership
The Octagon Partnership brings together an international network of experts from across the globe, to deliver architectural excellence through sustainable design and planning.
Bringing together Brock Carmichael and The Oval Partnership, the project comprises a multi-disciplinary approach by using highly skilled and experienced architects, planners and designers. With offices in Hong Kong, Beijing, London and Liverpool, it’s a presence across Europe and Asia that champions innovation and new ways of working from the initial briefing phase to completion.
Established as a 50/50 joint venture company in 2012, The Octagon Partnership combines 62 years of architectural and design experience, and has delivered a wide portfolio of buildings since its inception. These include projects that vary in size and complexity, and include newly built, converted and adapted properties.
Whether new or based on older (even listed) buildings, the fundamentals of our work remain the same – to ensure the most innovative and relevant design disciplines are used to address any and all issues surrounding a project – such as their environmental, social and economic impact, as well as how they will perform as longer-term, functional spaces.
The Octagon Partnership believes this focus on principles of inclusion, sustainability and innovation are essential to the future of architecture and are central to the delivery of excellence in key disciplines such as:
Urban planning and urban design
Architecture and interior design
Street furniture and signage design
Our team is equipped to deliver on all of this, recruited both in Hong Kong and internationally, with experience throughout the Asia Pacific Region, United Kingdom and Europe, and a an excellent understanding of their respective cultural and economic environments, as well as language skills that enable them to operate in English, Cantonese and Mandarin.
