Our Shanghai office is conveniently located in the heart of the city, just one block from historic Nanjing Road. Views atop the 51-story high-rise of Raffles Centre are unsurpassed, and this is the exact location we call home. Looking out onto the entire length of the Bund and its opposing skyline of Pudong takes everyone’s breath away; absorbing expansive horizons in an ultra-dense urban fabric.
The frantic pace of the morning commute quickly subsides as joyful personalities gather in our continuously growing space. A true highlight of our entrepreneurial spirit is seen within the dedicated and energetic team. Each person contributes a unique set of skills and experiences, adding to the immense diversity and depth we offer in our design solutions. Opportunity for creative exploration, integration of holistic urban principles, implementation of human-centered design, and the promotion of sustainability, are the drivers behind our presence in China. Sharing an international perspective allows for enriched collaboration across our firm.
Although every office boasts their main attractions, nothing compares to the food scene in Shanghai! There are more options here than most places in the world. We pride ourselves on our appetites for great design…and in great food! Shanghai makes for excellent culinary adventures—from casual lunches to dinners out when hosting our international colleagues. Celebrating everything from Earth day to Chinese New Year, we embrace all cultures in our SmithGroup family.
