    The Middle House, located in the heart of Shanghai within bustling HKRI Taikoo Hui building, has officially opened embracing a ‘modern-day Shanghai’…

    The latest addition from Swire Hotels, The Middle House, provides guests with an intimate and urban sanctuary in Shanghai, one of the world’s most dynamic cities in the world.

    “We are really excited about The Middle House. Each of our properties embraces the spirit of its home city, and The Middle House exemplifies modern-day Shanghai,” said Brian Williams, Deputy Chairman of Swire Hotels. “The Middle House is our fourth hotel in The House Collective, which welcomes world travellers who seek a luxurious yet unique and personalised experience during their stay.”

    The Middle House adopts an Italian vision blended with a local twist and modern aesthetic to standing elegantly above the city skyline. The spirit of modern-day Shanghai is palpable through the 111 modern studios, varying from 50 sqm to 100 sqm, a gallery suite and a Penthouse – all influenced by celebrated architect Piero Lissoni‘s sumptuous and sophisticated interior design. The design draws inspiration from the city’s rich heritage of craftsmanship and culture, marrying minimalist style with classical Shanghainese elements. Throughout the property, guests will find cultural touches and artwork inspired by Shanghai.

    The Middle House also features a 660sqm top-floor Penthouse overlooking fashionable Nanjing West Road. The immaculately designed two-bedroom suite offers private terraces, a lounge and an exclusive event space with a private kitchen – an ideal venue to celebrate special occasions and host dinner parties and product launches.

    Wooden staircase

    The hotel’s residences range from 55 to 110 sqm. An example of Lissoni’s bold lines, sleek silhouettes and modern take on the city is found in one of the apartment’s wooden staircase, which spiral down rough and rustic wall surfaces.

    The Middle House also presents a mix of cuisines and dining options with three gourmet restaurants and bars: Café Gray Deluxe, Frasca and the soon-to-open Sui Tang Li.
