Hospitality, Restaurant

Highline is an all day dining, lounge and bar located in the Ascott Serviced Apartments in central Shanghai.

The design is a refined and minimal creation, drawing inspiration from US mid-century modernism though an LA luxe filter.

The program and site were challenging: the dark, low ceilinged space was to function as an all-day venue for both hotel guests and visitors.  Fortunately, an expansive terrace adjoins the space and we were able to extend the dining room onto this terrace, creating a sunlit skyroom, which forms a transition between the intimate dining room and the spectacular views from the terrace.
