We are excited to announce the latest promotions of Elga Niemann, Younha Rhee and Ben Rose in our London office.

Elga Niemann to Associate Director
Named one of forty top emerging and influential lighting designers in 2016, Elga has played a key role in the success of Atelier Ten London’s lighting team. Elga joined our London lighting team in 2015 bringing with her 15 years’ experience in architectural lighting and a portfolio of award-winning projects. Elga is currently working on a number of high-profile national and international projects including the world’s first multi-storey skatepark in Folkestone with Guy Holloway architects, the Great Tapestry of Scotland Gallery with Page Park and Bee’ah Environmental Headquarters in Sharjah with Zaha Hadid Architects.

Younha Rhee to Associate Director
With almost ten years at Atelier Ten, Younha specialises in multiple benchmarking systems and is leading the way on the development of strategic sustainability frameworks. Younha has worked on a large range of projects from developing a bespoke sustainability brief for British Land to managing the site-wide sustainability management plan for the Chelsea Barracks project in London – the first LEED Neighbourhood Development project in Europe. Not stopping at how our projects respond to the environment, Younha is chair of our green committee, here in London, making sure that the health and wellbeing of our staff is at the highest level. She has also been spreading her knowledge through educational lectures and sitting in final reviews at Architectural Association, University College of London, Southbank University and École Polytechnique Federale de Lausanne.

Ben Rose to Principal Public Health Engineer
Six years of hard work with Atelier Ten, Ben is a reliable and important member of the team here in London. Ben has worked on a variety of exciting projects from the high-end residential project of Macaulay Road to the state of the art design of the Bee’ah Headquarters in Doha. These projects have allowed him to obtain a vast knowledge of sustainable water technologies. Ben also utilised this knowledge in Mozambique with WaterAid on the development of a concept for the dewatering of human effluent to enable easy transport and disposal, for implementation in high-density low-income settlements not connected to sewage networks.
