The Upper House, Hong Kong | Hotel Interiors Fireplace | Travelshopa

You might be inclined to wonder which hiding spots are responsible for such magnificent views of Hong Kong’s “skyscrapered” city coupled with state of the art interior design. We’ll let you in on our little secret shall we? Perched at the top of Pacific Place – a glossy shopping complex in centrally located Admiralty – is the sleek modernist’s dream come true.

True to its architect’s vision, The Upper House is a small luxury hotel reminiscent of a private residence. Designed by Asia’s most sought-after interior designer Andre Fu, The Upper House sits on many lists of top hotels around the world.

The mere ascension towards the uppermost floors presents a voyage in itself – transporting you from the bustling Hong Kong streets into a hushed environment of calm and tranquility. A portrait of modern elegance, The Upper House’s aesthetic is minimalist and spacious, providing a luxury that the dense overcrowded city can only dream of affording. Every aspect from design, proportion, and materials, down to the choice of contemporary artworks is calculated to conjure an uplifting experience.

To the side showcases a small collection of local jewellery designer, n i i n, that spells unique design and raw creativity with a penchant for the chic and wearable.
