A Beijing Hutong has been converted into the nation's first magazine library, offering guests a pleasant environment to sit back and enjoy some digestible literature.
What makes this library so unique, aside from its contents, is its modern architectural design, in which it pays homage to the residence's roots by preserving some elements from the original structure. Located next to a picturesque canal, the facility, dubbed, the Spring Whispers Book Club features an interior that's both modern and updated as it uses steel framework and features a clean color palette of light wood and white.
Perfect for spending an afternoon, this revitalized building offers visitors a variety of sitting areas and a bar that offers drinks and light snacks.
