Yuanguyunjing Restaurant (wuyuanRoad)

Beijing Hutong meets Shanghai old western style house
The restaurant is a small gray building, tall, straight and simple, with some European style details, which has a typical post-modernism style. Although the façade is shabby, it looks elegant. In particular, the two big trees in the courtyard add color to this small building. I remember that Emperor Huizong of Song Dynasty had a painting of “listening to the guqin”, which was simple and concise, with three people sitting opposite each other under the pine tree. One person plays the guqin and other two people listen. This scene just fits the current situation of the courtyard. The sense of picture is hard for designers to find.
