Florence Chan

KPF, Director | Hong Kong, China


A Director at KPF, Florence Chan joined their New York office in 2007, before permanently relocated to the Hong Kong office in 2008. Since then she has been involved in a series of mixed-use projects, with special interest on super tall building design in mainland China. She plays an essential role in many of KPF’s projects, acting as liaison between clients, consultants in Asia, and the design teams in New York and London.

Ms. Chan’s involvement in a number of KPF’s leading projects has helped her to develop technical expertise in highly complex and large-scale projects. She played a key role in the design of Hysan Place in Hong Kong’s Causeway Bay, the first LEED Platinum certified mixed use tower in Hong Kong. The project was recognized with several awards, including a MIPIM Asia Gold Award in the Mixed-Use Buildings Category in 2012 and the ULI Global Awards for Excellence 2013.
