Practice Ideology

MDO is an award winning interior and architecture practice based in Shanghai founded by Jaycee Chui and Justin Bridgland in 2014. The office approach is highly spatial, exploring scale and proportion, and creating journeys and stories rich in detail, material and light.

MDO works with high-end residential, exhibition centres, hospitality and office projects, and clients include the top Chinese residential developers. Their projects are in mainland China, HK, Edinburgh and the Middle East and have received international recognition. Today the office works at different scales and disciplines including interior and architectural design, lighting, furniture and graphic design. This multi-disciplinary approach allows MDO to pursue a holistic vision to their projects.

With backgrounds from Hong Kong and the UK, they excel at integrating different cultural contexts into designs. And they emphasize the notion of “transformation” in design practice and work to create diverse experiences via the combination of space and emotion.
