Over a decade after it was originally conceived, the ambitious InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland Hotel is opening to the public. Located in an abandoned quarry in Songjiang, about 30 miles from the city center, the 337 room hotel features panoramic views and several floors that are submerged underwater.
JADE+QA, under the guidance of Martin Jochman, designed the concept and facade. The award-winning design calls for 19 floors, 17 of which plunge down into the depths of the quarry below ground level. Two of the 17 underground floors are actually submerged in a 33-foot-deep aquarium.
One of the most stunning architectural features of the complex is the glass “waterfall” that spills down the side of the quarry and houses an atrium. A glass “waterfall” runs the height of the 19-floor building, housing an indoor atrium.
The InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland Hotel is located in an abandoned quarry and includes an adventure sports center. The InterContinental Shanghai Wonderland is accepting reservations for November 20, 2018 onwards with prices starting at ¥3,380 ($487).
从最初构想的开始历经逾 10 个年头后，上海佘山世贸洲际酒店 (InterContinental Shanghai) 诞生了，这家“奇境”酒店正式开业和对外开放。酒店位于松江一个废弃的采矿坑，距离市中心大约 30 英里，设有 337 间拥有全景的豪华客房，而几层楼皆位于水下。
另外，最令人惊叹的建筑特色之一是玻璃“瀑布”，它从采矿坑一侧倾泻并形成一个中庭。上海佘山世贸洲际酒店位于一个成功“点石成金”的废弃采矿坑，同时是一个探险户外活动中心。酒店从 2018 年 11 月 20 日起接受预订，价格从 3380人民币起跳 (487美元)。
