Haitai Int’l Building

We converted a high-rise hotel managed by Shanghai government to a new modern office building. Without changing the total floor area, floor-area ratio, total height and it’s structure, we redesigned the entire exterior, interior, and MEP, to ensure the performance required for a modern office requirement. We also reworked the building’s exterior to resemble a single glass sculpture, realizing a completely new image.
