Former office building, 33 Grosvenor Place in London, has been transformed into healthcare provider Cleveland Clinic’s first European hospital.
In a gesture of establishing a more open and inclusive international cooperation in science and technology, the Chinese Academy of Sciences, the China Association for Science and Technology and the World Laureates Forum have developed a new district in Shanghai as a global community for research and innovation. Located on the south side of Dishui Lake in the Lingang New Area of Shanghai, the district will house institutions and research organisations specialising in formal and natural science. PLP Architecture was commissioned to programme and design an artificial intelligence laboratory situated in the heart of this community.
Located adjacent to Hyde Park in London, Queensway Residences sets a new benchmark for prime residential development in the heart of the city.
This ten-storey residential scheme in the Strand Conservation Area in Westminster will replace a vacant 1960s concrete office building on an island site surrounded by important institutional buildings including the Royal Courts of Justice, The Royal College of Surgeons of England and the London School of Economics and Political Science. The scheme includes 230 apartments including studios, one-, two- and three-bed apartments, two penthouses, amenities for residents, and a landscaped courtyard providing communal amenity and an attractive outlook from the apartments.

PLP Architecture is part of an international team that has won a major competition to realise Parco Romana, an urban-scale redevelopment project in Milan’s Porta Romana district. The project interprets the industrial legacy of the site while reanimating it with contemporary programs centred on an ethos of sustainability.
PLP has unveiled a masterplan and architectural design for a large complex at the heart of a metropolitan centre in the Pearl River Delta. Located at a very prominent junction within the central business district, the project comprises four buildings: the Nexus Building – a 600m office and hotel tower; the Platform for Contemporary Arts – a performing arts complex; the LZ Park Tower – a 300m office tower; and the Concourse – a large scale retail and leisure facility.
Sitting on 17.4 hectares in West London, this master plan is a significant catalyst for regeneration and one of the most strategically-important sites for the future of the capital. This vast swathe of industrial land will be transformed into a thriving new district, creating much-needed new homes and jobs, a new school, high quality parks and open spaces benefiting from incredible new transport connections along with access to the historic Grand Union Canal.
The shortage of housing is an acute and pervasive problem in the contemporary city and young people are perhaps the most affected. Faced with housing that is either exorbitantly expensive or hopelessly inadequate, they are increasingly pushed out of urban centres, isolated and marginalised.
Situated just a few steps from Hyde Park, the scheme provided us with opportunity to design an exciting contemporary addition to Mayfair’s unique architectural character. Located along a prominent route leading from the heart of Mayfair Conservation Area towards the Royal Parks, the existing buildings form part of an urban block with a dual aspect to both Curzon Street to the south and Stanhope Gate to the north.
