Beijing: The Opposite House

Got lots of impressions from recent trip to China.

This exclusive design hotel / art space in the Sanlitun area in Beijing is worth a post:

A very interesting exterior and interior, with the use of new material like glass, metal and concrete combined with old, like the wonderful ancient door and majestetic floors logs.
