Located within a quadrangle courtyard in Beilucaoyuan Hutong in Beijing, La maison Xun, a Chinese style restaurant, has been put into operation quietly. Unlike other popular high-end restaurants today, it boasts its comfortable modern art and antique architectural pattern. Designer Liu Daohua of LDH Architects insists on respecting both history and nature. He brought people back to the tranquility in the memory of old Beijing residents in today’s bewildering aesthetics. Photography by Wang Ting from Dalian AsYouSee.
Different spaces assume different forms and meanings. For La Maison Xun, its design core lies in the introspective experience in aesthetics and art and also the intuitive sense of times. It allows you to feel the natural tranquility of the city in the life atmosphere of the ancient Hutong.
Entering into the quadrangle courtyard through the red gate, you can see Chinese traditional art elements such as gray tiles, wooden eaves, black walls, and ancient trees, which will bring people into those elegant years.
