DXMID Designed Spa for The Iconic Twelve at Hensan in Shanghai.

The hotel, Architecture is done  by Mario Botta, Luxury collection Hotels. from Marriot International. 1000 sqm

Italian architect Mario Botta created the residential-style retreat designed in modern-Chinoiserie style. The design of Twelve at Hengshan is said to draw inspiration from the area’s “history and traditional Chinese hospitality,” said to have been updated with romantic flourishes and contemporary amenities. Botta’s portfolio of structures includes the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art and the Samsung Museum of Art in Seoul, South Korea.

The hotel’s contemporary architecture provides a contrast with the atmospheric neighborhood lanes, preserved art deco buildings and restaurants, boutiques and galleries in the surrounding area. Incorporated within the low-rise heritage district, the hotel comprises a five-story rectangular building surrounding an elliptical internal garden. A large entrance portico facing Hengshan Road with a sheltered semi-circular driveway provides a dramatic entrance stage. The front portico also houses the hotel dining venues and meeting facilities.

The façade is dressed in more than 20,000 natural terracotta tiles baked and imported from Italy. Terracotta is a popular trimming on many of the historic buildings in the area, most notably the former American International School on Hengshan Road. It is also a natural and eco-friendly material.
