The House Collective

The Middle Kingdom’s most charming and sophisticated selection of luxury hotels, the House Collective, belonging to Swire Hotels, is a relative newcomer to the luxury hotel scene – established in 2008. The House Collective’s four epically opulent hotels are entirely unique, each representing a personalized perspective on different aspects of China’s vibrant culture.

The Opposite House is an oasis of elegant tradition standing strong amidst the Beijing whirlwind and Upper House is a peaceful, serene space in the heart of Hong Kong’s infectious hustle and bustle. Chengdu’s Temple House blends tradition with contemporary style, a soaring 100-studio hotel accessible only by walking through a restored courtyard; Middle House, open in 2017, welcomes guests to the historic district of Dazhongli in Shanghai.

The House Collective’s concentration on creative architects and bold designs have given rise to an audacious, inventive brand.

The Opposite House

China | Beijing

Located in Beijing's stylish new Village at Sanlitun shopping and entertainment complex, the Opposite House is a unique small hotel designed by noted Japanese architect Kengo Kuma. While the exterior is clad in squares of varying hues of vibrant green, the 99 rooms and suites are soothing, decorated in warm, neutral tones and fitted with pale wood furniture and crisp white linens. Kuma says he intended for the blend to create the calm of an "urban forest." The hotel's name is derived from the Chinese term for the guest house in a traditional courtyard compound, which was located opposite the main house. There are a variety of restaurants and bars to choose from, in keeping with the hotel's Sanlitun location: Sureño faces on a sunken tree-filled courtyard and serves mediterranean cuisine; Bei (which means north) specializes in the cuisine of Northern China, Japan and Korea; Mesh is a dark and cozy lounge and bar, with excellent cocktails and an extensive wine list, while Punk, a "mini-club" is edgier and hosts local and international djs. There is no business center, but wi-fi is available in all rooms and public spaces. There is also a high-design spa surrounding a large and visually striking stainless-steel-clad pool, which offers massage therapies, a steam room, sauna and fitness center. Opposite House is 40 minutes from Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK).


The Temple House

China | Chengdu

Blending the traditional with the modern just like the city it stands in, The Temple House is a masterclass in elegant design. Guests enter through the lovingly-restored courtyard, dating back to the Qing dynasty, and the historic style is integrated into many of the building’s features. The hotel’s service, though, is slick and up to date, with paperless systems ensuring an effortless check-in so guests may relax in their elegant room, apartment or suite in no time. From local and international cuisine to tea and cocktails, the dining options are comprehensive and delicious, and with a spa, indoor pool, steam and sauna facilities and a state-of-the-art gym on site, every whim is taken care of. 


The Upper House

Hong Kong | Hong Kong Island

Opened in 2009, Hong Kong’s hip and luxurious Upper House is the sister hotel of Beijing’s Opposite House. Occupying floors 38 to 49 of the Pacific Place tower in Admiralty, Upper House was designed by architect Andre Fu, dubbed by Conde Nast Traveler as an “Asian design sensation.” His meticulous design is intended to evoke the intimacy and tranquility of a private home high above the hectic city. Each of the hotel’s 117 rooms, including 21 suites and two penthouses, has a dramatic harbour view or city view. Amenities in every room include an iPod Touch with custom music playlists, hotel and area information; 42-inch LCD TVs with surround sound, video-on-demand and PC, camcorder and MP3 connectivity; and choice of broadband or wireless Internet. On the property’s 49th floor, Café Gray Deluxe is helmed by chef Gray Kunz, featuring a 46-foot-long open kitchen and bar of the same length, as well as a private dining room for up to 12. Upper House’s atrium presents a 10-storey sculpture by Hiroshiwata Sawada, and each room’s decor includes a unique sandstone sculpture by Marvin Mintofang. There is also a gym with cardiovascular and weight-training equipment. Upper House is approximately 40 minutes from Chek Lap Kok International Airport.
