BACCARAT RESIDENCES [SHANGHAI, CHINA] DESPITE THEIR ADVANTAGEOUS LOCATION IN XIN TIAN DI, SHANGHAI’S PREMIERE ENTERTAINMENT AND LIFESTYLE DISTRICT, THE BACCARAT RESIDENTIAL TOWER’S DESIGN SCHEME LACKED SOPHISTICATION. RTKL transformed the two towers’ existing façades and reconfigured the development’s retail spaces, recreational facilities and residential interior layouts to appeal to local and international residents. The design scheme uses an elegant, pure-glass curtain wall system to express the project’s five-star. Existing ground floor hotel amenities were converted into retail stores and upgraded luxury residences to activate the surrounding streets and extend Xin Tian Di’s retail strip into the neighborhood.
