The mansion is located in Shanghai Lujiazui, most prosperous business district and embraced with all the world famous sky-scrappers. The client is a eclectic lady, who feels tense to live in urban life, so, enjoying the panoramic view of Huangpu river seems to be the best thing for a rest. Fascinating Parisian elegance and comfortableness is what she dreamed about, which is also what we’re going to bespoke for her.


For the layout, the original division of the mansion—the living room, bedroom, and dining room—has been re-organized in a refined way according to level of privacy. The original study was changed to walk in closet and integrated with the original built-in closet, the master bathroom and the master bedroom to form a entire suite, which can create a private family life unit with the daughter’s room; The study room, dining room, semi-open kitchen, and auxiliary area form another semi-private living unit. Both sides living units is integrated and transited by living room and hallway, where artworks are displayed. In this case, the family life flow and privacy level are re-considered.


In order to display Parisian elegance and comfortableness, the concise postmodernist furniture has been applied to the elegant and refined Parisian theme. The mixture of the various materials and fabrics—marble, wood, brass, velvet, stainless steel, wool, cotton and linen, and nylon—present a casual and sophisticated finishing effect. The interior decoration is inspired by classic French elements and brighten hues at same time—the white plaster wall decorative lines with ceiling curved light strip, the natural marble floor pattern with classic fireplace, and the specially master room curved wall with red wood flooring pattern—outline the Parisian elegance. The furniture selection is inclined to both comfortableness and artistry. Other than modern furniture, 18th-century antique mirror bought in the Paris antique market, the ginger & jagger eclectic marble shell lamp, a African artist sculpture, and the brass wall lamp designed by artist Paul T. Frankl and so forth, all of them are shaped the spacial identity, which is the combination of artistry and comfort makes the space ambience softer and more imaginative.


As client’s imagination, her mansion is facing the river with spring blossoms. We use design to interpreted as keeping elegant, sophisticated, simple but charming.
