Appreciation towards OFFICE AIO for providing the following description:

Read & Rest精品酒店置身于北京繁华忙碌的市中心内,力图在舒缓感官与诱发好奇心间取得平衡点,以此作为其倡导的高品质生活方式核心。

In the context of Beijing’s busy modern city life, Read & Rest Boutique Hotel at its core is an attempt at promoting a quality lifestyle that is balanced between feeding one’s curiosity (Read) and bringing calmness to one’s senses (Rest).

OFFICE AIO为酒店设计的空间,旨在引导人的心境进入一种平和悠闲的状态,为丰富和交流心智作铺垫。


OFFICE AIO’s spatial design aims to prime one’s state of mind into a calm and leisurely state, pertinent for knowledge and inspirations to be absorbed and exchanged between rests.

Upon arrival, the façade is hollowed out to create a double-height retreat from busy street activities. A dramatic telescopic portal is designed to allow guests to slowly progress into the humble hotel entrance, across the intimate lobby, and into the library. Through this passage of scale and space the guests can let go of their sense of time and reach a state of enlightenment much like entering a utopian fairy tale.

A Secluded Experience in the Hutong


The design creates a library with a central corridor and study alcoves shaping a space for peace and concentration through temperate repetition, rhythm and symmetry. This sense of temperance is carried throughout the hotel with sparse planes, minimally sculpted spaces, muted color palette, and natural veins of timber and stone. Collectively, they form a holistic experience that helps soothe one’s senses, from public areas to all the guest rooms.

客房以石膏打底,采用浅色暖灰色调,增强了隐秘感,犹如一个“安静小窝”。就此反射的光线柔和缓弱,并由暖色调的黄铜和天然橡木随类赋彩。 墙身原有的大敞口窗户被保留了下来,并改装成玻璃窗,让日光洒入整个房间,为胡同里的景致定格。 每一个窗口都配宽而长的木架台,意在让人就坐放松身心,享受阅读的乐趣。

Like a “quiet nest”, the guest rooms are toned and textured in a light shade of warm grey plaster to enhance a sense of seclusion, where reflections of light are softened, mitigated, and accentuated with tones of warm brass and natural oak. The original large openings are kept and refitted with large panes of glass to frame the ever-so-intriguing hutong scenes, and to allow daylight to penetrate the rooms. Each window opening is coupled with a generous and continuous wooden ledge intending for one to unwind and enjoy reading.

The resulting hotel carries the client’s and OFFICE AIO’s belief in simplistic and essential living.
