Time Out-Beijing apartment shots

Time Out-Beijing kindly requested to include our apt in their February Property Section, "Apartment porn". Below is the result:

"Roseann Lake peers behind the doors of one Beijinger's stylish Sanlitun abode Although she spends most of her work-day finding ways to prevent and resolve deadly conflict, Stephanie T Kleine-Ahlbrant, Northeast Asia Director for the International Crisis Group, comes home to a peaceful abode brimming with motley art, as we discovered.

Why the compound?
When we arrived in Beijing in July 2008, we chose the Sanlitun Diplomatic Compound for its family-friendliness, sense of community, excellent location and retro-chic character. Being able to play volleyball in the living room is big plus. Plus, we werenít going to be caught dead in a villa in Shunyi or a glass-and steel high-rise in the CBD. The place was pretty run down when we first saw it. We restored the floor ourselves with the help of a designer friend. The management didnít help, but it didnít object either."
