The Waterhouse at South Bund, Shanghai

4 of 12

With its super-raw industrial look and modern trimmings,
this 19-room hotel in the Shiliupu dockyard district mimics Shanghai’s old-new
dichotomy. For its three-story-high lobby, architects Lyndon Neri and Rossana
Hu kept the original 1930s warehouse concrete walls intact, added new steel
columns and beams, and for a touch of anachronistic elegance, suspended a grand
white paper chandelier designed by Studio Job for Moooi.
