Building on Kengo Kuma’s iconic architecture, Kokaistudios’ recently reconfigured events area on LG Floor – Commune – for The Opposite House in Beijing combines elements of traditional Chinese architecture with inbuilt flexibility. Comprising a main space and connecting corridor, cleverly concealed sliding doors mean the lower ground level venue can be configured in multiple ways. A neutral backdrop for events of all kinds, a palpable garden motif nonetheless runs throughout the space, drawing connections with the hotel’s celebrated design legacy as well as the sunken courtyard garden in its immediate vicinity.
