Gallery: Shanghai’s Hotel Waterhouse is a Striking Modern Renovation

 

As its name implies, the Waterhouse started out as a port warehouse located on the banks of the Huangpu River. The immaculate reconstruction played a sensitive role in maintaining the feeling of the open and simple building. Each room is utterly unique, although they have all the modern refinements of an upscale hotel. The building is designed with a very open plan; public and private spaces merge in the the many preserved passages and the new bright and airy courtyard.

    very nice overall look for the hotel
    but would have been better if photos of it’s interior are added..the lobby for example.
