Aesop WF CENTRAL House 19 Store


House 19

10am - 10pm


Nestled within the storied confines of Beijing’s Wangfujing area, renowned for its royal mansions and sweet water wells, Aesop WF CENTRAL House 19 marks the brand’s first foray into China’s capital. Conceived in collaboration with Atelier Suasua within a siheyuan—a traditional   Chinese courtyard residence—the design honours the historical structure of House 19, which is a replica of the residences once owned by a cousin of the Qing dynasty’s emperor. The interiors are populated with classical Ming Dynasty furniture and contemporary  elements, while the outdoor space takes its cue from the ancient practice of creating shaded, communal spaces for respite from summer heat.
