Recently opened, The Temple House in Chengdu is the latest edition to the House Collective by Swire Hotels

Joining The Upper House in Hong Kong and The Opposite House, Beijing, the project has opened in the new Sino-Ocean Taikoo Li development in the heart of the city. Designed by world-renowned architecture firm Make Architects, it incorporates 100 guest-rooms and 42 adjoining serviced apartments, all of which sit around the preserved, traditional courtyards next to the thousand-year-old Daci Temple.

Understated luxury pervades every corner of the hotel

Modern design is coupled with traditional Chengdu architectural elements such as timber, brick and stone steps, with bamboo trees framing the entrance to the hotel. The aesthetic of The Temple House evokes the modest houses that were provided for scholars who came from across the globe to study at the Temple. Humble, understated luxury is an integral part of the entire concept, with Mark Passmore, general manager of The Temple House noting, “The Temple House is a modern hotel that celebrates its historic location. We aim to provide discerning travellers with residential-style accommodation, where they can enjoy an authentic Chengdu experience.”

The hotel is located around the restored courtyard which was built in the Qing dynasty
