Beijing’s hutongs, the iconic alleyways of ancient China, are no stranger to adaptive reuse. We’ve seen siheyuan, the winged courtyard houses that flank the alleys, renovated into everything from boutique shops to restaurants, but ARCHSTUDIO’s recent hutong transformation in Beijing stands out from the pack. The Chinese architects retained the historic Qing Dynasty-era facade but transformed the interior into a beautifully bright and modern teahouse.
