Reesco and Iliard join forces

Reesco welcomed Iliard Architecture & Interior Design to their group with the aim of creating a design & build service for the commercial real estate sector.

The businesses have jointly established Reesco Hospitality, a brand new arm which will focus on the design and delivery of hotel and PRS developments.

As a result of the agreement concluded at the start of 2021, renowned architectural studio Iliard has become part of Reesco Group. Created by both parties with the aim of merging Iliard’s design expertise with Reesco’s know-how, Reesco Hospitality will be involved in the design and construction of hotels and PRS projects. Its board of directors will include Iliard Board Directors Wojciech Witek and Łukasz Koziana, who will remain at the helm of the architectural design studio.

Following the creation of Reesco Retail, the group naturally expanded its sector of expertise into hospitality and created a dedicated team. Now, the combination of Iliard’s designers and Reesco’s executive team provides the opportunity to create a design & build offer for the office, retail, hotel or rental housing (PRS) sectors.

“Our goal was to create the best team in the hospitality, office and PRS sectors in Poland. Through our cooperation with Iliard, we have acquired a top architectural studio specialised in designing office buildings, hotels and interiors in key locations across Poland and Europe. The combination of Reesco Hospitality’s design & build services with Iliard’s expertise enables us to give investors the comfort of being guided through the whole process, from land analysis, through design and evaluation, to implementation and commissioning of construction works. says Artur Winnicki, CEO of Reesco Group.

“Joining Reesco Group means that we can complement our know-how and competence. Reesco is a major player on the map of contractors for the remodelling and fit-out of offices and - for several years now - hotels and shopping malls. Being part of Reesco Group also gives us a big opportunity to grow and develop. We are confident that this cooperation will create an important force in the Polish office and hotel market.” adds Wojciech Witek, co-founder of Iliard and Reesco Hospitality.

A key player on the market, Iliard has been cooperating with some of the largest hotel chains in the world having worked with Marriott, Hilton, Accor, Louvre and Radisson Hotel Group in many European cities. Last year, Iliard was nominated Design Studio of the Year in the 2020 Hotel Investments of the Year competition (Hotelarskie Inwestycje Roku). The studio is also responsible for the architectural design of AFI V.Offices, which was awarded the second highest BREEAM in history, right after Bloomberg office in London.
