December 10th, 2012 – The elegant post-renaissance building, No.3 The Bund, has become a chic Shanghai destination since its recent renovation. The building has been filled with sleek new dining spots such as Jean Georges, Mercato, and Neri & Hu’s striking new top-floor restaurant New Heights. Partners Lyndon Neri and Rossana Hu, along with their creative team, collectively make up Shanghai-based design firm Neri & Hu Design and Research Office – who elegantly simplified the spaces’ industrial design features to create the lively modern brasserie.
The restaurant has 160 degree city views, which can be seen through the frosted glazing or on the L-shaped terrace. Neutral-toned materials such as Terrazzo, wood, and bronze, gives the space a harmonious feel, only small punches of color make their way into the space with bright green columns in the restroom. The restroom, is perhaps one of the more exciting features at New Heights, where floating bronze partitions with large number graphics on the door create the bathroom stalls. Above the playfully designed restroom stalls is a metal-mesh ceiling that gives patrons a glimpse of the pipes and duct work above, which is painted bright green to add another element of depth to the design of the space.
