Jing’an Residence is a minimal home located in Shanghai, China, designed by Mason Studio. The multi-generational families that inhabit these townhouses, together with a minimal design approach, redefines accepted notions of luxury within the urban context of Shanghai, China. Each townhome is a pure expression created to be a lasting home for generations; one that values quality and craftsmanship over ostentation. The environments prioritize natural light, the use of the highest quality finishes and refined construction detailing to express how essentialism redefines traditional perceptions of luxury. By playing up natural materials like wood and marble – and sculpting light directly into the interior design – Mason Studio has done just that. Their luxury townhouses in the Jing’an neighborhood in Shanghai emphasize modern minimalism, and stand out for their use of the essential elements only.
