“Short Stays” is a new film project commissioned by The Opposite House, produced by independent filmmakers and producers Samantha Culp and Zhang Xianmin. In this creative experiment, three of Beijing’s most talented emerging filmmakers created original short films within the hotel itself, each with their own distinct vision.

The Opposite House is the first of a collection of hotels by Swire Hotels located in Sanlitun Village—a vibrant new open-plan shopping, dining and entertainment destination developed by Swire Properties. The hotel’s 99 guest studios, including 9 spacious suites and a penthouse duplex with a 240sqm roof terrace, are amongst the largest in Beijing. More than half of all the studios are over 70 sqm and all are strikingly simple with natural wooden floors and subtle touches of Chinese décor.
The House’s six-storey high atrium is also home to a permanent collection of contemporary Chinese art with rotating exhibits every three months. Celebrity sightings are not uncommon as the trendy and well-heeled come to dine in the restaurants and bars.
The name, The Opposite House, is derived from a Chinese translation which historically described the building located opposite the main house in a courtyard where esteemed guests would stay. The name also reflects the hotel’s southern location within the courtyard design of The Village at Sanlitun and highlights Sanlitun as a district of diversity and opposites—of tradition and modernity.
