No. 366 Shi Men Yi Road, Jing’an District, Shanghai, China
Imagine a very high-end, calm oasis in the buzzing hive of Asia's most dynamic city, that feels both refreshing and traditional. That’s The Middle House. In the Jing’An district, known for its upscale boutiques and an ancient Chinese Buddhist temple, the hotel oozes both glamor and heritage.
The building’s exterior features innovative, round aluminum louvers, providing shade and privacy to it’s 111 spacious, misty-hued rooms, while creating a textured façade you can’t fail to recognize if you're trying to get back there. Inside, renowned Milanese designer Piero Lissoni has devised a modern masterpiece of sleek, bold lines and clean silhouettes. Pay particular attention to the curved stairwell of metal and wood, which he likens to an unraveled egg. Artwork and sculptures dot the property, some are signature Lissoni, others feel quintessentially Shanghai. (One ought never be predictable.)
The clutch of top-notch restaurants on property deserves a mention, as does the splendid spa. Rooms themselves are everything you would hope for in an oasis. All have freestanding tubs with views, Lululemon yoga mats, and bath and body products by Bamford. Bravo, Swire!
