Take a look at some of our most anticipated projects completing in 2020

As a new decade gets underway, Chapman Taylor is as busy as ever, with a wide range of new projects commencing across the world. 2020 will also see the completion of several of our exciting and diverse developments, including a waterfront icon in Baku, an all-year ski village in Norway, and innovative city centre residential and commercial schemes in Manchester, Prague and elsewhere. Below is a selection of the Chapman Taylor schemes opening this year, helping to kick-start the 2020s in style.

Deniz Mall, Baku, Azerbaijan

Located on land reclaimed from the Caspian Sea, Deniz Mall will be a 120,000m² entertainment, retail, leisure and dining destination over five floors. A ‘flame’ tower is the centrepiece of eight star-shaped wings inspired by Azerbaijan’s national emblem.

Chapman Taylor designed the original building as a congress centre in 2007, and now the building is being repurposed, keeping the same design, to include entertainment, leisure, F&B and retail facilities.

The development's complex geometry was modelled by Chapman Taylor in BIM software, as well as deliverables including drawings, schedules and visualisations. Chapman Taylor’s London studio was appointed to provide the interior design services in 2016, with the complex on course to open in 2020.

The Flow Building, Prague, Czech Republic

This project provides seven floors of prestigious office space, three levels of flagship retail and two basement levels of parking on an important corner site in world-famous Wenceslas Square.

Designed and developed to respect the urban, historical and social significance of such a prominent location, the 3-D facade system is a first for the Czech Republic.

The project is also sustainable and energy-efficient, using intelligent, integrated building technical systems. Chapman Taylor's Prague studio designed this high-profile office and retail development.

Kotelna Park, Prague, Czech Republic

Kotelna Park is a 10,000m2 NLA office development by Red Group which will provide flexible Class A workspaces offering state-of-the-art facilities, large and flexible floorplates and excellent views across Prague. Phase two will deliver an extensively glazed building offering six floors of high-specification workspaces served by two semi-underground levels of car parking – the latter featuring green roofs which create a terraced podium for the offices above. The lower ground floor hosts a spacious reception area and café/bistro for the building’s users and visitors.

The buildings have been designed with a focus on low energy consumption and abundant natural light, while a rear, south-facing garden offers the building’s occupants a landscaped space for recreation and relaxation to recharge their batteries.

The new office park is located on a significantly sloping site in Prague 5 – a former industrial area which is rapidly becoming one of the city’s most important office hubs. The district sits alongside one of Prague’s main roads from the city centre. Chapman Taylor was the Lead Design Architect for the project, which is set to complete in early 2020.
