KENGO KUMA & ASSOCIATES : THE OPPOSITE HOUSE

“The Opposite House Hotel opened in the summer of 2008 in Beijing’s vibrant Sanlitun district.
Designed by Kengo Kuma & Associates, the hotel’s 99 contemporary guest rooms are among the largest in Beijing with more than half being over 70 sqm. The rooms are strikingly simple with natural wooden floors and subtle touches of Chinese décor, lending each one a sense of place.
The name, The Opposite House, is derived from a translation of a Chinese word, which historically described the building located opposite the main house in a courtyard where guests would stay.
The Opposite House is the first of a number of hotels being developed in China, Hong Kong and the UK by Swire Hotels, which will all be distinctive hotels, individually named and each uniquely designed by renowned architects and designers.” – the contemporist
