Broadway Malyan


Down two places after shedding four UK architect roles this year, Broadway Malyan employs almost as many staff abroad as it does in this country.

The practice has six UK offices and nine overseas studios in nine countries, including Brazil, India and China. It is working in Europe, Africa, the Middle East, Asia, Australasia and both North and South America.

Broadway Malyan is a frequent entrant to architectural competitions, and last summer beat Zaha Hadid Architects and BIG to the right to design a $100m cruise terminal in Miami.

Its Destination Bank proposal was one of 10 projects shortlisted recently for a Square Mile competition being run by The City Centre in partnership with the City of London Corporation and Brookfield Property Partners.

This spring the practice unveiled a scheme to regenerate a 6.5ha site alongside the River Lagan in Belfast. The £400m Sirocco Quays project will create a new river-front district with 69,000m2 of office space, 815 homes, a hotel, restaurants, cafés and retail space.

Broadway Malyan, established in 1958, does three-quarters of its work through repeat business. It expects profit margins to remain in line with 2016 levels both at home and overseas this year.

In the UK, 21 of its 86 architects are female, while overseas 13 of 63 are women. About 13 per cent of the company’s global head count of qualified architects is black, Asian or minority ethnic, a higher proportion than in the UK alone.

Late last year, Matthew Cattell, an associate at the practice’s Reading studio, scooped top prize in the Landscape Photographer of the Year awards for his image of a murmuration of starlings at Brighton.
