A bit of an escapist post today rather than one on somewhere I’ve actually been (still in holiday dreaming mode post-Sydney break!). I love the look of this hotel in Beijing, The Opposite House.
Designed by a Japanese architect, Kengo Kuma, it only opened in August last year. With 99 rooms and some seriously chic looking restaurants and bars, it also houses a contemporary art space (pictured above).
While the eating and drinking spaces (like the one pictured above) are a bit more decadent, the guestrooms are light and minimal, and I particularly love the standalone oak bathtub (how zen!).
And here’s the outside – a funky cube (hmmm, reminds me of the Olympics’ Water Cube – is this Bejing’s shape du jour?).
