This is a kids art/animation studio on a hutong street in THE drum tower area! Here is the center of Beijing, the quiet deep soul of the city. We built a loft can host 2Adults+1Kid (friends, travelers, families, creative ones, and maybe you :)
【Welcome!】Here is for the people who love art and love kids. We think exchange ideas` stories and knowledge is more important than stick with some traveling style, that's what we learned from our trips and why we built a loft just for host people since day one. Come over and have some mellow time with us. We will make sure you in comfortable.
【Shared space】Yes! This is a shared space. Because: 1`The place for guests to sleep is a loft. It’s a private area, just don't have a door to close. So we better not call it 100% private:) 2`Some time in studio may have some classes or weekend workshops in the day time during your stay (contact me to know the exact schedule). So you may not be here alone at those times.
【Private home】BUT! NOBODY WILL BE IN STUDIO AFTER 8PM. ONLY THE AIRBNB GUESTS AT NIGHT TIMES. So to be more precise. This is a day time sharing space and night time privet home.
You can use our bikes or skateboards to explore the hutong streets. and some of the art tools if you are interesting in. Just don't take anything from the boxes without telling. And computers are not available for visitors.
If we are not busy, we will willing to join you or you can join us on: good food, cool events, one-day trip out of Beijing, art shows, films, snowboarding, outdoor sketch, middle night cycling…… or just good conversations :)
【No kitchen】We DON'T have a kitchen because the safety reasons. Gas is not safe for a kids studio. but we do have an electric hot plate and a counter top oven to cook some basic food.
【Security camera】We have two cameras, one by the front door, one in the computer room. They are only face to the door to see who is coming in. That's all. No cameras in any other space.
【No smelly food】请不要在屋里吃榴莲!
【Class schedule】The loft is over a classroom, so it's not 100% private. On school term season (Sept to Jan and March to June) there are classes at 5pm-7pm on SOME weekdays and weekend workshops in the day time. On school holiday season (July to Aug and Feb) there are classes at 9am-4pm on SOME weekdays and weekend workshops in the day time. So you may not be here alone at those times. But every night there is nobody here from 8pm.
No smoke inside!
No parties and events!
Need take a photo of one guest's ID or Passport.
I'm a freelance illustrator & animator. Half late night worker, and half outdoor crazy :) In Beijing, I offer whatever I have to the travelers who pass Beijing for a short time, but also welling to know this city by a deeper level. And that give me a chance to meet more great people who is doing their amazing works. When I travel I love to take it slow, this way I can make some drawings and discover more.
