The Middle House is the fourth House under Swire Hotels’ award winning The House Collective, and offers 111 rooms as well as 102 serviced apartments under The Middle House Residences. The interiors of the House and apartments are by Milan-based architect and designer Piero Lissoni, with architecture by Lissoni Architettura, and Wong and Ouyang. The name The Middle House suggests a close connection to the other houses within The collective, each having a strong design collaboration and intent. The use of Middle is a nod to the hotel’s location Dazhongli, one of Shanghai’s historic neighbourhoods. ’Zhong' in Dazhongli is a reference to central in Chinese.
Located in the heart of Shanghai’s popular commercial district and in close proximity to the city’s fashionable Nanjing West Road, The Middle House continues the company’s philosophy of intimate luxury, delivered with highly-personalised service. The House offers many unique features, not least an abundance of outdoor spaces and terraces, providing an elegant and calm oasis amidst the dynamic backdrop of one of Asia’s most sophisticated cities.
