Hotels & Lodging: The Opposite House in Beijing

October 29, 2009

Designed by Japanese architect Kengo Kuma, The Opposite House takes its name from the guest house that sits on the opposite side of a traditional courtyard-style Chinese home. Aric Chen writes in the NY TImes, "Clad in screen-printed glass in pixilated shades of green, the Opposite House has the city’s chattering classes exclaiming over its generous rooms and dramatic, moodily lit atrium—all offering an aura of quiet and intimacy. The rooms are agreeably spare, with aromatic oak floors and bathtubs, cream-colored limestone walls, and gauzy curtains."
