Bei Restaurant at The Opposite House

Bei Restaurant at The Opposite House

Bei (meaning “north” in Chinese) is a restaurant based on northern Asian cuisine located in Beijing, China. Entering Bei, one is surrounded by a forest of trees, a visual shield from the outside. A second screen encases the public dining area, above which bird lights dance. Visible beyond the clearing are five white boxes, carved within to house the private dining rooms.
