One of the entrance to Dashilar Alley, one of the hub of Beijing Design Week where hipsters, designers, visitors and locals mixed for a week.

I am a good week, ok, 10 days late on this post. I know and I am sorry. Every fall, Beijing hosts an awesome Design Week and it concluded last 3rd of october. We saw some great designs, had an amazing time and discovered some clever new concepts, notably in Dashilar where a group of chinese architects designed an affordable yet stylish housing solution for the small structures of the hutongs. Beijing historical small houses located in the center of the city. They are usually old, decrepit and particularly un-insulated for Beijing extreme weather.
