The former French Concession is one of Shanghai’s oldest neighbourhoods, an area rich with elegance and antiquity. Within this quaint enclave, stands an eight-storey residential building that blends the romance of the old with modern luxuries.

The luxurious serviced suites transport owners and guests back to the romance of early 20th century Shanghai. An interior designed to complement the international lifestyle of its residents without forgetting the charm of traditional Shanghai design elements.

Rich walnut timber, timeless marble, black lacquered rattan panels, and an earthy palette contrast and combine for a truly luxurious interior with considered Asian accents. One priority of this project was to make the space as open as possible. Enlarged windows allow natural light to fill the space, and walls removed to create an expansive living area – to include an open kitchen, dining and study. Each area has its own identity through subtle space demarcation, using an artwork and tv wall along with varied ceiling heights.

The result is a warm atmosphere, inciting a sense of comfort and relaxation, refined by a luxurious quality that flows throughout this spacious residence.
