The Opposite House in Beijing unveils a reimagined experience

Beijing - The Opposite House, located in the heart of Beijing within the bustling Sanlitun neighborhood, unveils the completion of an inspired renovation, creating new experiences at its public spaces as well as dining and bar venues. Originally designed by acclaimed Japanese architect, Kengo Kuma in 2008, The Opposite House was the first House of TheHouse Collective by Swire Hotels, a group of refined, highly individual properties, each with its own distinctive character. Standing as the brand’s “House of Art,” the reimagined spaces at The Opposite House offer guests an urban sanctuary blending bold contemporary art with Chinese traditions that draw inspiration from Beijing’s creative energy, complementing to Sanlitun’s lifestyle hot spot and fashionable atmosphere.

The House’s redesign blends contemporary art with present-day culture, from the new lobby concept, to three new dining and bar venues as well as an immersive gallery space. The addition of Union, a modern-day salon and bar concept, invites guests to exchange ideas over craft cocktails inspired by the ancient Silk Road, while Jing Yaa Tang, Chef Li Dong’s Michelin-starred masterpiece, reflects the connection between traditional and modern Chinese cuisine. Superfly, the new casual Sichuan bar and restaurant features vibrant interiors inspired by local street culture and pop art, which is juxtaposed by Frasca, a sleek trattoria serving Italian classics by chef Marino D’Antonio.
