TENGBOM strengthens Asia presence

Cambodia Construction News

Tengbom, one of the leading architecture companies in the Nordics, further strengthens its presence on the Asian market through a close co-operation with Cambodian The Room Design Studio.

Through this collaboration Tengbom gains a broader platform in Asia. Our intention is to further expand our business in Asia and the co-operation with The Room enables that. The Room has extensive knowledge of the Cambodian and Regional markets, this, combined with Tengbom’s long history and our strong offer, gives us a solid competitive advantage, says Magnus Meyer CEO Tengbom. 

Tengbom is one of Sweden’s leading architecture firms, with over 500 employees in some ten offices all around Sweden. Tengbom’s unique offer is based on a broad knowledgebase combined with front edge competence within all aspects of architecture, urban planning, interior design and landscape architecture. 

Tengbom has been active in Asia for several years. In 2011 Tengbom received one of the world’s most prestigious architectural prices – the MIPIM Future Projects Award – for its urban planning project for the sustainable city of Wuxi, outside of Shanghai, China

To us, the collaboration with The Room Design Studio is an important step in establishing our firm presence in Asia, says Magnus Meyer. We are convinced that this will bring great opportunities, both for us as a company as well as for our clients. 

The Room Design Studio is situated in Phnom Penh, the capital of Cambodia. The studio is owned and run by a team of Swedish architects, employing some 15 people working with architecture and interior design. 

Tengbom has an option to buy The Room Design Studio and our mutual intent is to integrate The Room Design Studio with Tengbom over the next few years. We have already started this process through an ongoing exchange of knowledge between the offices. Tengbom will also be able to leverage the competence and the capacity of The Room Design Studio for ongoing and future Swedish assignments.
