Fine Cafe & canteen

Fine Café & canteen is located in a traditional Hutong area near Gong Wang Fu, a prince’s mansion of the Qing Dynasty. In this renovation project, the architects intend to highlight the contrast between history and modern life, and between traditional Beijing architec­ture and European style.

Like many old residences in Beijing, the building is dug on level ground, descending about one metre. To take advantage of this extra space, a loft is built to divide the café into a lower space dominated by tradi­tional Chinese style and an upper one by European ele­ments.
