Lisbon studio marks 25th anniversary
15th June 2021

Broadway Malyan has celebrated the 25th anniversary of the opening of its first international studio in Lisbon.

The studio was launched in 1996 by Stuart Rough and Margarida Caldeira and was the catalyst for Broadway Malyan’s global expansion with new studios in Madrid, Singapore and Shanghai opening in the years that followed.

Today the practice has more than 400 design experts around a network of 14 studios across Europe, Asia, the Middle East and the Americas.

Group chairman Stuart Rough, who remains based in Lisbon, said the decision to open the Lisbon studio marked the beginning of an exciting new era for the practice.

He said: “To have reached a quarter of a century in Lisbon is a really exciting milestone for the studio and is testament to the many long term relationships we have established over that period and the excellent teams whose passion for design and placemaking has been so crucial to our success.

“Our decision to open our first overseas studio in Lisbon was a response to the growing opportunities in Portugal but also reflected our ambitions as a practice to explore different markets and write a new chapter for Broadway Malyan.”

Over the past 25 years, Broadway Malyan’s Lisbon studio has evolved into a fully integrated design studio with expertise across a range of disciplines including architecture, interior design, masterplanning, branding and visualisation.

The studio has worked with more than 400 clients, completed more than 1,000 projects in more than 30 countries and delivered more than 3,500,000sqm of build space with key projects including the transformation of Lisbon’s iconic Rossio station as well as the city’s international airport.

“We have a wonderful team here in Lisbon whose talent and energy has helped us build a fantastic portfolio of projects and whose shared ambitions and commitment to quality are so important as we look towards the next 25 years.”
