A new Swire hotel due to open in Shanghai at the end of 2017 has been named the Middle House as the fourth property in the company’s House Collective division. It is part of the mixed-use development HKRI Taikoo Hui on Nanjing Road (West).
The Middle House will offer 111 rooms as well as 102 serviced apartments known as the Middle House Residences, with interiors for both by Milan-based designer Piero Lissoni and architecture by Lissoni Associati and Wong and Ouyang.
Swire says the Middle House continues the company’s philosophy of “intimate luxury, delivered with highly-personalised service”. Features include an abundance of outdoor spaces and terraces as a contrast to the bustle of one of Asia’s most sophisticated cities.
Swire Hotels is continuing its collaboration with New York-based chef Gray Kunz, with the restaurant Café Gray Deluxe and a menu inspired by dishes from the award-winning Hong Kong location.
Swire Hotels managing director Brian Williams said: “Following the success of the House Collective in Hong Kong, Beijing and Chengdu, we are excited to introduce the Middle House to Shanghai for guests who seek a different and personalised experience.”
