Shimao Grand City is located in between East Nanjing Road and People's Square, where is the heart of Shanghai and the transportation hub in downtown, gathering people from all over the world. Since built in 2004, Shimao Grand City has been the landmark in this region. Kokaistudios was invited by the client to renovation and redesign the podium of this large-scale building. After extensive study and analysis, we came up with the "theater" concept. There will be radical changes taking place on the facade, entrance and over-all layout. This project is currently under construction.
