Courtenay will head up newly launched London interiors division

Architectural firm Aedas has recruited Ralph Courtenay to oversee its newly launched London interiors division.

Courtenay spent 15 years at HOK where he specialised in workplace design and strategic consulting.

He will work alongside Hazel Karsten, a specialist in hospitality interiors and Logan McWatt, managing director of Aedas’ international business.

Aedas has identified its interiors division as a key driver of the practice’s growth in London.

Mike Walters, managing director of Aedas’ London office, said: “Having identified interiors as a major part of our growth strategy, Ralph’s appointment is a clear signal of our intentions. 

“His track record and experience will prove vital assets and we look forward to building up this team over the coming months.”
