Shanghai Pangu Tiandi Residence
Following on from the huge success of the Emporium Suites renovation, Bangkok, world-class architecture and interior design firm dwp continued working with City Realty, on a high-end residential development in Shanghai. The Panggu Tiandi residential development received a stunning 3-bedroom penthouse show unit, which sets a new benchmark for this region and market. The design theme of the show unit reflects that of a high-end retail boutique. A skillful play on haute couture luxury, coupled with an ultra-urban lifestyle and stylish comfort and convenience led to a sophisticated elegance. Specific details and finishes were selected to bring warmth, elegance and a unique ambience into the overall space.
dwp took to task the foyer, living room, dining room, kitchen, study, bedrooms and bathrooms, including the master suite. Having selected the props, artwork and accessories, including lighting from Bangkok, Thailand, dwp‘s team flew to Shanghai for the arrangement and management of all of the FF&E on site, as well as managed the transportation of the imported items to China. The success of this exclusive penthouse project stems from the team’s dedication, passion, commitment and extensive coordination and engagement with the very satisfied client.
A warm white paint tone, metallic charcoal-grey wallpaper, rich cappuccino coloured timber flooring, deep purple velvet, lustrous leather and champagne-gold feature lighting fixtures were just some of the chic materials, textures and accents, to this daring and devilishly classy décor and colour scheme. This sophisticated colour palette is witnessed in the living, dining and master bedroom. Customized, striped-pattern etching on backlit smoked mirror glass illuminates in the evening for a gorgeous glow, allowing a smooth shift in mood and ambience from day to night – one location, two appropriate moods. The black striped imprint across white Italian marble, echoed in a silky area rug, is also a key standout feature, making a similar continued pattern across two different finishes, for an innovative touch. Bedrooms 2 and 3 met with metallic champagne-gold wallpaper, warm grey coloured paint with gold molding trim, royal blue velvet furniture and black lighting fixtures.
The majority of materials and finishes for the interior construction were sourced locally in China, including some recycled finishes, in order to minimize environmental and cost impact on the project, further adding to client satisfaction.
