We design market-leading shopping malls across China and the APAC region

We think of shopping malls not simply as a series of functional interconnecting corridors, but as dynamic, customer-centric experiences in their own right...destinations that give you a genuine reason to stay and return time after time

In our shopping malls, the shops are not the only reason to make you want to visit.

We design not only from the perspective of architectural form and planning efficiency, but with experiential value and destination placemaking at the core of our thinking and with the customer at the very centre of everything we design. We like to ask ourselves: “If you took away all the shops, would people still visit?”

We have worked with the likes of K11, Swire and Capitaland to create some of Asia's most exciting and commercially successful shopping centres.

Here's what one of our happy clients had to say:

" Studio X are a dynamic and strategic team of thinkers who take time to understand and explore the limits of a client’s brief.

They offer retail development insights and provide unique perspectives in their design solutions. Studio X have been a great support to our retail development team and has proven to be flexible and fluid in adapting with the Client’s needs in our ever-changing retail landscape.

Sam and Rufus and their team are detail-oriented designers who can navigate a project from master planning through to operational and merchandise planning.

They understand the importance of maximising business needs whilst complimenting their design agenda with innovative and functional designs "
