Founded in Shanghai in 2016, Grey Space Architects started as a locally-based architectural design team of growth, diversity and global mindset, offering interdisciplinary, whole-cycle and integrated design service on master planning, architectural design, interior and product design.
With education from Tongji University, the founding team has based the practice in Shanghai and developed their design philosophy exploiting this global metropolitan as a container of diverse historical and cultural events. While in Shanghai as the centre of cultural fusion, Grey Space has participated widely in regional architectural practice, while continuously exploring more diversified and international design strategies for more complex architectural and spatial design attempts.
Our design practice has been rooting in regional architectural and spatial exploration under global context, seeking for a more proactive site intervention incorporated with local culture, site conditions, functional requirements, indigenous materials and construction technologies, so as to realize genuine and concise architecture of locality.
Grey Space has always been balancing our projects in the whole design-construction process. More than formal aesthetics itself, we have been responding to the site condition and functional requirement while subtly breaking through from space, form, light, material and detailing, etc., giving meanings of a different level to the architectural form.
