To Summer Book Pavilion


B1 102a

10am - 10pm


Emperor Qianlong of the Qing Dynasty converted the West Warm Pavilion of the Hall of Mental Cultivation in the Forbidden City into the "Hall of Three Rarities" to house the foremost work by the Eastern Jin scholar Wang Xizhi, "Preface to the Poems Composed at the Orchid Pavilion," along with works by 134 renowned figures throughout history. Within the eight square meters of the space, countless poetic and literary insights flowed freely, demonstrating that the value of a study lies not in its vastness, but in its unique soul.

「To Summer Book Pavilion」 draws inspiration from Eastern aesthetic culture, crafting a spiritual space reminiscent of the Hall of Three Rarities, where personal treasures were kept. It houses the curator's favorite books and antiques. A book pavillion should not be limited to words, books, and paper; we bring together fragrance, aesthetics, and philosophical musings to welcome guests and host friends.
In the Forbidden City, the Hall of Three Rarities was the emperor's sanctuary of personal preferences, a space to house carefully curated treasures from past dynasties. Today in Beijing, 「To Summer Book Pavilion」offers an elegant corner where fragrance and words are intertwined, inviting you to immerse and find inspiration.
