LISSONI'S ARCHITECTURE

Piero Lissoni is the renowned architect and founder of Lissoni Architettura in Milan.

Lissoni is known for his use of sleek, bold lines and clean silhouettes to redefine modern spaces. His design efforts extend to The Middle House’s exterior façade, as well as the interiors of all its public spaces, guest rooms and residences.

The hotel’s exterior façade features a series of round aluminum louvers, which provide shade and privacy for guest rooms while creating a textured aesthetic that visually distinguishes the hotel’s two towers from surrounding developments. While louvers with their functional, uniform slats are a familiar sight in Shanghainese architecture, using round frames gives them a refreshing new spin.

While Lissoni’s signature is apparent in the subtle yet impactful combinations of bold lines, materials and colours, the overall theme is enhanced by décor and custom furnishing inspired by Shanghai’s culture of arts and craftsmanship, providing an intriguing marriage of old and new.

The architecture

DESIGN

For interior spaces, Italian designer Lissoni has taken inspiration from Shanghai’s rich heritage of craftsmanship and culture, marrying his minimalist style with classical Shanghainese elements.

Drawing from his decades of experience reshaping contemporary Italian furniture, Lissoni has created modern reinterpretations of traditional Chinese furniture for the guest rooms, including oriental-style nightstands, contemporary table lamps and wall-to-wall benches in the living area.

For the spacious residences, sliding wood panels facilitate a flexible living space. A warm and inviting colour scheme of white and cream is accented by bright pops of colour in the furnishings and décor, while the bathroom floor is paved in rich dark ceramic parquet tiles with brushed bamboo textures.
