CULT FAVORITE BOUTIQUE BRAND The House Collective, of Swire Hotels, is opening its fourth property, The Middle House, this month in Dazhongli, one of Shanghai’s oldest neighborhoods, on the southern side of Nanjing Road West. Its rounded, aluminium louvered exteriors create a stylish, environmentally friendly façade that modernizes traditional Shanghainese architectural elements—a thought process the hotel’s award-winning designer Piero Lissoni brought to the spacious, minimalist, Chinese-accented interiors as well. The yoga classes by Lululemon, the heated indoor pool and the complimentary in-room maxi-bar speak to today’s generation of have-it-all travelers. Devotees of the original Upper House in Hong Kong can look forward to another seasonal-European Café Gray Deluxe on site, and a similar calming nouveau-Zen aesthetic throughout the whole property.
