Interaction with guests

A siheyuan (Chinese: 四合院; pinyin: sìhéyuàn; Wade–Giles: szu4-ho2-yüan4) is a historical type of residence that was commonly found throughout China, most famously in Beijing. In English, siheyuan are sometimes referred to as Chinese quadrangles. The name literally means a courtyard surrounded by buildings on all four sides.

Throughout Chinese history, the siheyuan composition was the basic pattern used for residences, palaces, temples, monasteries, family businesses and government offices. In ancient times, a spacious siheyuan would be occupied by a single, usually large and extended family, signifying wealth and prosperity. Today, many remaining siheyuan are still used as housing complexes.

我出身在美丽的新疆,那是一片充满传奇的土地。大学所学的专业是酒店管理,后来在酒店工作,曾经在上海为五星级酒店做供应商。在10年的酒店从业经验中,萌发了想要自己开一家特别的小店想法。因为非常喜欢北京这座城,喜欢北京的四合院,于是毅然决定离开上海,来到北京,租下了一个当时很破旧的四合院。投入了自己所有积蓄,从材料的购买到设计到与工人的沟通,我一个人搞定!想想还是很佩服自己。如果你想看看什么是真正的四合院,一定要来我的梦想院子。
I was born in a beautiful xinjiang, that is a piece of land full of legend.
University major is hotel management, and later to work in the hotel, once do suppliers for a five-star hotel in Shanghai.
In 10 years of experience in hotel industry, the germination of the idea want to open a special store.
I really like the city of Beijing, like the siheyun of Beijing, so he decided to leave Shanghai, came to Beijing, rented a courtyard was very old.
Spent all his savings, from material purchase to design to the communication with workers, I a person!
Think about or admire myself.
If you want to see what is real courtyard, must come to the yard of my dreams.
