Background and history so far...
MLD is well known for its innovative work for commercial and entertainment clients throughout Asia.  Alongside this core work the practice has developed a strong body of work for private residential clients and developers throughout the region.

Mark Lintott originates from England where he built up a solid foundation of work while at the practice of PTCO in Chelsea London. Mark spent 8 years working with PTCO contributing to a diverse range of clients and projects in London and overseas. The projects ranged from high end private residences to a multitude of other bespoke work including recording studios, shops, restaurants and offices. Geographically these ranged from London to California to New York, Tokyo and eventually Taiwan.

In 1991 Mark left the firm and established his own practice in Taipei Taiwan at the beginning of a period of enormous change in the region. MLD set up in Taipei and was fortunate to do so with the support of several key clients enabling the firm to quickly establish a solid foundation. Since 1991 MLD has developed into one of the most respected design firms in the region balancing success for our high profile commercial clients and great satisfaction for the more discrete but no less demanding private clients.

The work does not follow a particular style or single concept but is approached with the knowledge that every client and every project is different and therefore requires differing solutions.  The firm is well known for thoughtful solutions to unique situations and is keen to embrace simple colours, materials and components sourced locally but utilised in new ways or re-purposed to fit.  Tight budgets or short time schedules are viewed as positive contributors to the process rather than negatives and involved clients are a highly valued part of the whole process.

MLD have recently completed a landmark project for Shinkong Mitsukoshi department stores in Chongqin China. Its one of the largest malls in Asia and represents an entirely new direction for both Shinkong and for this scale of commercial project generally. As a family memory driven space it includes a village of shopping and entertainment outlets around a 5 floor atrium with its own green landscape, clouds and a 2 floor carousel at one end.
Earlier in 2017 MLD finished a smaller scale, high end, boutique type department store for the Miramar group in Taipei with restaurants, shops and cinemas in the basement. Miramar are also the owner/operators of the cinema complex within Taimall in the suburbs of Taipei and MLD have completed a fast tracked renovation of the site completed on time and to a stringently controlled schedule and budget.
We have had the privilege of collaborating with a vast range of clients over the last 20 years or so and a large number have become repeat clients and close friends.  A few of the more public groups we have worked with since 1991 include:

Recently it was even listed as one of the top ten hotels worldwide by Shortlist Magazine in London.

In 2009 MLD completed a new flagship site for the Wego Motel Group in Taiwan and the firm is currently developing a new design direction for Jin Party KTV to be rolled out in numerous sites in China and Taiwan over the next 5 years.

In parallel with this MLD is in the early stages of planning a new venture to design and manufacture furniture and design accessories for sale initially in Taiwan but eventually, for export back to Europe and the UK in particular.
