Aedas is an international architectural firm that provides services in architecture, interior design, landscape design, urban design, masterplanning, and graphics. It was established in 2002 as an alliance between three existing companies in the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, and Australia.
Aedas was established in 2002 as an international alliance between British architecture firm Abbey Holford Rowe, Peddle Thorp of Australia, and LPT Architects (formerly Liang Peddle Thorpe) of Hong Kong. At that time, Peddle Thorp and LPT already had an existing alliance. The three firms were respectively renamed Aedas AHR, Aedas Peddle Thorp, and Aedas LPT. It was planned to drop the suffixes over time, and the offices eventually adopted the simpler “Aedas” brand.
Aedas opened its first China office in Beijing in 2002 and was appointed to design Fortune Plaza 1 (2003). Other mixed-commercial projects in Beijing include TG Harbour View Apartment, R&F City, R&F Plaza and R&F Centre in Beijing. The company set up offices in Macau (2004), Shanghai (2005) and Chengdu (2005).
In Macau, Aedas delivered its first integrated casino resort project Sands Macau in 2004. Aedas was commissioned as Lead Architect for The Venetian Macao (2007), Four Seasons Hotel Macau (2008), Sands Cotai Central (2012), Marina Bay Sands (Singapore; 2011) and The Parisian Macao (2016).
The company was commissioned to design Dubai Metro (2004). The Dubai office was established in 2005 and the Abu Dhabi office was set up in 2007. In 2010 and 2011, Ocean Heights, Boulevard Plaza and Ubora Towers, all in Dubai, were completed.
