Hotel Indigo on the Bund, Shanghai
Urban Hotel / China / HBA Singapore / Completed in 2012
The Hotel Indigo Shanghai on the Bund has a personality all its own-one that could not be replicated anywhere else in Shanghai. The boutique hotel brand's flagship location in Asia, the 180-room hotel is a vantage point from which to view and to participate in the community. Throughout, Indigo's design is about connecting the hotel to the neighborhood-one anchored by the river and its influence on commerce and connection. HBA's innovative design accomplished a true feat: connecting the ancient with the modern. The result is a youthful, comptemporary, inspired space that understands where it has come from and leads the way into Shanghai's design future.
