If you ever get the chance to visit Susanna Swee at our office in Shanghai and are wondering where to grab a good meal in the vicinity, you’re in luck. Susanna knows all the best dining places in town. And her interests outside of work don’t stop at her love for food. She has a penchant for organizing events and as a hobby even co-founded and designed her own modern oriental fashion line, which was featured in shows across Malaysia and Singapore in the early years. Susanna is all about immersing herself in creative pursuits to inspire her work and how she lives her life to the fullest.


Strong client relationships are built on trust – trust in our process and trust that we get the right team together to deliver.

While she currently calls Shanghai home, Susanna went to school and university in the UK and has worked in countries across Asia. As Executive Vice-President Asia, Susanna is no stranger to the fast-paced nature of her role. She has since Jan 2016 taken over the role as Managing Principal Shanghai. With an MBA and practical experience in running her own businesses, she’s a true entrepreneur at heart and will get involved in all aspects of projects from creating strong client relationships and business development, through to leading design teams on architecture and interior design elements of various sectors especially mixed-use developments and healthcare. Her ability to marry creativity with a strong business acumen is her strong suit and contributes to our efforts in building businesses in Asia.

Susanna joined B+H in Jan 2010 and has more than 25 years of architectural and interior design experience.
