In April, Apple opened its new 175-acre Apple Park in California, one of this practice’s latest designs. Partners at the business, led by founder and chairman Lord (Norman) Foster, 82, bought back a 40% stake from private-equity firm 3i for £108m in 2014. Strong growth in the Middle East pushed international sales to £233m. Last year it employed 1,480 people, but in April it announced plans to cut nearly 100 jobs, primarily in London, as part of a restructure.
