CitizenM – Shanghai Hongqiao
CitizenM has landed in one of the most exciting up-and-coming business areas of Shanghai: Hongqiao, in the Minhang District. Concrete designed the interior of the freshly built 303-room citizenM hotel.
CitizenM is part of a larger area development at the Ziteng Road metro station where offices, hotel and the MixC shopping mall are being built. The project is located in the west part of Shanghai between the middle and outer ring road near the Gubei District also known as Korea Town.
The design for the public space is a destination in itself in order to be a place to hang out for hotel guests and the users of surrounding offices. It’s meant to be, in addition to the usual lively lobby for our guests, a place for all participants of the new area. The large societyM on the first floor makes the hotel also a place for people to sit down and work.
