Chengdu Sino Ocean Taikoo Li

In the competitive real estate market within China, the ability to immerse potential tenants in the details and lifestyle of a development apart is key to communicate the concepts behind it. We were asked to develop the showsuite content and design for the retail development of Sino Ocean Taikoo Li, in the rapidly growing city of Chengdu, with an eye to delivering a message about the quality of life and enjoyment that could be found there.

Art Installation at Art Basel 2014

Marc & Chantal tackled the opportunity of designing the Swire Properties Corporate Lounge at Art Basel for a third straight year with a goal to make it the most ambitious installation yet. The aim was to create a design that would be an engaging and meaningful lounge experience, then become a beautiful and playful semi-permanent installation at Taikoo Hui in Guangzhou. The concepts for the art piece were realised in coloured glass and mirror panels that immersed visitors in an optical playground.

From conception to finished product, the exhibition provided an insightful look into his unique method of combining traditional, hands-on design techniques with industry-leading computer technology.

Indigo

Creating a showsuite is an exercise in the art of illusion, imagination and persuasion. For their second project in Beijing, Swire Properties asked us to bring that kind of magic to the design of a unique sales experience. Indigo is a mixed-use development, with retail, commercial and hotel components, located in the up and coming Jiangtai district in Beijing.
