Paper is the new communal workspace, social club and private oasis for the modern thinker. For the dreamer who seeks structure, the creative who needs tools, and the influencer who wants company, welcome to your new work oasis. 



Location, location, location.  Paper is located on Huaihai Middle road, a historic landmark block in the heart of the French concession, Shanghai.   Our facilities are housed within a 5 story beautifully restored 15,000 square ft. warehouse which sits on a small original 1930’s lane.  The façade of the building is tiled with beautiful Italian mosaic, creating an iconic 3D image of a crumpled sheet of paper - in lieu of our company name.  The inside of the building has been completely gut renovated and curated with only the finest in modern décor, featuring beautiful furniture + lighting by top level design brands from around the world.


Our communal workspace - elegantly curated with boutique modern furniture, eco-friendly design and state of the art technology - is supported by individual desks, private multimedia presentation rooms, dedicated small-team offices, conference rooms and executive hotel suites available at hourly or daily rates.  The entire building will feature lightning fast WiFi provided by H3C, the fastest and most reliable Internet network in China at 1000 mb/s.  Additionally, all members will receive executive administrative support, concierge services, on-site IT support, as well as printing and scanning services.  We want you to stay ahead of the game.
