Discipline: Interior Architecture

BBK35 is a hospitality project located in a traditional Chinese courtyard house in BaBoukon Hutong, Beijing. Siheyuan is a fundamental component of traditional Chinese building typologies. It grows and transforms into variety ways that evolved before and after the China Revolution. It reflects the typical Chinese pattern of building and hierarchical level of thought, and the theory of yin and yang. The key elements of the Five Phases were applied to create a narrative of the traditional family atmosphere in the space. It is a mixture of historical remnants and contemporary culture.

  • TARGET GROUPS Consumer / User

  • TARGET REGIONS Asia, Europe, North America

  • DEVELOPMENT TIME up to 12 months

  • DATE OF LAUNCH 2016

This small intervention in a traditional Siheyuan house offers accessibility not only to an existing basement, but also to the history of the place itself. New architectural interventions often seem to translate the structural and formal logic of the existing structure yet frame it with a contrasting approach and a consistent contemporary abstraction. Lines not only connect interior and exterior spaces, but also new and old, public and private areas of the guest house.
