Shang was a vision held by WTL Design CEO and Design Director, Lilian Tian. She wanted to create a workplace that celebrates community — one that embraces technology and design, and encourages passion. As the founder and principal of her own design firm, Lilian wanted to create an environment in which her employees and teammates could flourish. A space they would be proud to enter every day and that would enhance the quality of both their professional and private lives. It quickly became apparent that breaking down barriers and creating a community of multi-discipline, multi-functional spaces was the answer. Shang was born, not only as a working place – but as a living space.

WTL Design took on the task of renovating the existing hotel building. This building was perfect for the new work community Lilian had envisioned. It is centrally located in the city with plenty of great indoor and outdoor spaces. The team undertook the demolition, design and construction of the newly purposed building under the title of “SHANG”. The five stories making up the building are filled with events, retail and f&b outlets, office space, co-working clubhouses, and guesthouses.
Special attention to the communal spaces makes this project shine. Every occupant of the building feels their private home-at-work is well cared for and equally important. To top that off, there is no shortage of collaborative spaces throughout the building to encourage inter-company relations.
WTL loves their new home surrounded by handpicked neighbors and a bustling community. Feel free to drop by; we’ll give you a walk around!
“We created SHANG as an ecosystem — embracing work, life, and leisure it takes our vision of interior design to the next level by controlling and integrating style, function and program.”
