HSa originates from a native ideal about humanism, i.e. to create a brand-new design partnership paradigm so that excellent talents, while pursuing their respective ideals, can work together to create extraordinary value. Over the years, in spite of constant expansion of its business portfolio and diversification, HSa has never changed its core spirit of humanism. In terms of the brand image, “HS” is a combination of the initials of two Chinese characters where “H”, short for “Han” in Chinese, refers to the extensive and profound traditional culture, and “S”, an abbreviation for “Si” in Chinese, refers to constant thinking and researching. In combination, “HS” is intended to show a integrated commitment to provision of the best architectural design services in the local market of China.
In contrast to the centralization model of traditional Chinese design institutes, HSa adopts an entirely different model by allying different professional teams for different design businesses, including planning, construction, structural engineering, MEP engineering, landscape, interior design and its recently established BIM digital design business.
