Cundall was appointed by Hakkasan as building services engineers for the world-renowned upscale, modern Chinese restaurant at the Bund, Shanghai. Cundall collaborated closely with a multi-national team of designers, project managers and construction teams throughout the design and construction stages to create a luxurious surrounding for Hakkasan’s newest location.

The stunning interior space of Hakkasan Shanghai restaurant includes the main restaurant, main bar, Ling Ling Bar and five private dining rooms. Some of the highlights of the interior design include a lacquered lattice of carved Chinese screens known as the “Cage” that envelops the dining area.

The building was original built in 1923 for Standard Chartered Bank’s China headquarters, Cundall therefore had to create mechanical and electrical design solutions compliant with heritage requirements whilst achieving the client’s space design ethos of “ethnic design using luxury material”.
