The Waterhouse

Barbie loves that homes come in all varieties. There's so many different ways to live that even a dreamhouse could be inside of a hotel. Much like art there are a million ways to create a home and sometimes even the ones that look the same are very much different. So Kens and Dolls does your house look like someone else's?

The Waterhouse

Designed by Chinese architects NHDRO this disused Japanese army headquarters in Shanghai  has become a hotel. While it maintains the building's stripped concrete and brick walls the design also adds a new Corten steel extension on the roof. The Waterhouse is comprised of four story's nineteen rentable rooms and a beautiful view of Huangpu River. 

Would you live in The Waterhouse? 

Barbie would. 

Kisses, m.
