HWCD is an international design practice, based in Shanghai, with offices in London and Barcelona. We offer a wide range of design services: from urban design to mixed-use; luxury hotels to high-end residential projects; from conceptual to construction drawings.HWCD has always been guided by a belief that the quality of our surroundings has a direct influence on the quality of our lives, whether that is in the workplace, at home or in the public realm. Allied to that is an acknowledgement that architecture is generated by the needs of people – both material and spiritual – and a concern for the physical context and the culture and climate of place. Equally, excellence of design and its successful execution are central to our approach.Our goal was to create a truly global practice firmly rooted in the communities we serve, while drawing on international expertise and design talent. Our offices provide a world-wide reach for international clients. We strongly believe that in an increasingly globalised market place, architecture should benefit from a contextualised response that acknowledges the cultural and environmental specificity of its region. With an International team of partners, we have unrivalled local knowledge and experience from around the world. Therefore we are able to advise clients in a way that provides the advantages of both a local and global approach. This belief and our commitment to establishing sustainable practices in communities both large and remains as true today as it was when the company was first established.At present, HWCD co-operate with many top developers and local governments. We provide premier quality service to our clients and will never stop adapting or improving through our positive and impressive attitude.
