The Gulangyu Mixed Court, designed in was built by the English Presbyterian Mission in early Modernist style after permanently leased this parcel of land in 1915. After being sold twice, this building became the residence of the “Sugar King of Java,” the Indonesian born Xiamenese Huang Zhonghan. The Kulangsu Mixed Court rented this building as their office during the 1920s and 30s.
Today, the building is a private residence complex, but it’s still a head-turner of an architectural achievement, and easy to appreciate from the outside.
