Splash of Architecture

The Waterhouse at South Bund is a new hotel in the historic Shiliupu district of Shanghai.  It features 19 rooms, a destination restaurant, rooftop cocktail bar, and a warehouse-style event space.  I love the contrasting industrial elements with the sleek materials and warm woods.  The entrance literally unfolds from rustic wooden beams, and the windows are a series of punch outs with framed wooden openings.  This is a great example of how the architecture and interior of a building work hand and hand with each other and blend seamlessly together.
