The Waterhouse at South Bund by Neri & Hu  in Shanghai, China is a chic renovation of an industrial warehouse from the 1930s.

The dockyards neighborhood of the historic warehouse district remains outside.

 architecture

A brisk new concrete counter keeps a stiff upper lip, and an ironic chandelier poses an amusing contrast in decor.

 architecture

But irony aside, peeling paint and stained old concrete is just what the weary traveler has no energy for at the end of a tiring journey.

 architecture

Which is why the rooms upstairs come as more of a surprise.

 architecture
Suddenly you are offered a big hot bath in a glass box and a long night’s sleep on fresh white sheets – comfort!

It is almost as if the contrast is intended to maximize the relief.
5 architecture
Smoky glass is used in several rooms to screen off the shower or bath.

 architecture
Upstairs there are only a few reminders of the antiquated original dockyards structure, like this dark brick wall.

After the historical preservation downstairs, here comfort and peace reign.

Altogether a refreshing spatial experience for guests who seek the extraordinary.
