FEI Holds Inauguration of New Lausanne Headquarters
May 6, 2011
The inauguration of the HM King Hussein I Building, the new headquarters of the Fédération Equestre Internationale (FEI) in Lausanne, is taking place today, May 6, as equestrian sport expands rapidly throughout the world.
The headquarters have been named in tribute to the FEI President, HRH Princess Haya’s late father.
Khuan Chew, founder and design principal of London-based architectural firm KCA International Ltd, worked in close collaboration with Swiss-based architect Hervé de Rham and interior designer Siavosh Adeli to transform a building dating from the late 1960s by redesigning the façade and totally reconstructing the interior.
Speaking of the project, Chew explained that the FEI “was very receptive to my creativity in introducing ideas and features not normally entertained in a corporate environment.”
