A graduate of Belfast School of Architecture, Vincent began his career with PDM Architects in Ireland before accepting a position with prestigious architecture firm OMA, relocating to Holland to work on projects such as De Rotterdam in the Netherlands and Fondazione Prada in Milan. In 2013 Vincent relocated to Hong Kong with OMA, leading projects such as the Taipei Performing Arts Centre and Beijing’s internationally renowned CCTV Tower.
In 2015, Vincent left OMA and founded ALT-254. Early clients included Hong Kong’s notorious Ce La Vi and Lombok’s most premium residential development — Selong Selo.
Today ALT-254 is one of Hong Kong’s most well-known architecture and design firms, counting international clients as Ovolo Hotels, The Pavilions Hotels and Pret-a-Manger amongst its loyal customers. Vincent’s unparalleled knowledge of Japanese property development has led to the firm currently managing over US$40 million in projects in Niseko and beyond, as well as spearheading notable local architecture and design projects such as Ovolo Hotel Group’s industry-disrupting Mojo Nomad Central.
