Three on the Bund

Shanghai, Peoples Republic of China


Project Management

Three on the Bund is one of the wonderful buildings that make up one of the world’s great streets, The Bund. Built in 1916, Three was the first steel framed building built in Shanghai.

The neo-classical exterior of the historical 7-storey building essentially remained unchanged however, the 14,000 m2 interior underwent a complete refit.

The client wanted to include the “best” ethnic and local cuisine, the “best” galleries for Chinese and Asian art and the “best” design and fashion boutiques to return Three to the standard of cultural and commercial activity that the Bund once knew.

Michael Graves, one of the world’s most significant architects, designed the refit.

Gammon Construction appointed Foxton to manage the design and construction of the US$20 million refit.
