About Us

All 19 rooms in the Waterhouse are unique in terms of layout and décor. The ‘stairway’ rooms can provide a view of the hotel’s courtyard, while guests in rooms with French windows can admire the spectacular Huangpu River from afar. The underlying design concept for each room in the Waterhouse is based on the traditional Shanghai “nong tang”, or alley way. In the hotel, the boundaries between private and public spaces are blurred yet maintained. The guests, as a result, are able to experience the traditional Shanghais style of living in a modern and improved setting.

The Design Concept

The hotel’s design philosophy is based on a blurring or an inversion of internal & external spaces, creating a disorienting yet refreshing spatial experience for guests in search of something out of the ordinary. The public places allow glimpses into private rooms while the private spaces invite guests to peek into public areas. The result is a stay that both defines and distinguishes the visitor experience at The Waterhouse at South Bund.

Architect / Designer

One of the leading architectural voices in China today, the Shanghai-based Neri & Hu Design and Research Office (NHDRO) was commissioned to transform a non-descript riverside building into a daring interpretation of modern Shanghai, where old and new sit side by side.
