The Opposite House

Hotels and Restaurants

Opened in August 2008, The Opposite House is the first hotel from Swire Hotels. With an emerald glass architecture designed by the world-renowned Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, the concept of The Opposite House is a mix of the modern and the traditional. Breathtaking from the outside and equally stunning within, the design is one of seamless space, allowing the 99-room hotel to convey a sense of serenity and calmness in the midst of the vibrant street life of Taikoo Li Sanlitun.
