For­mer Ku­lang­su Mixed Court (Hui Shen Gong Tang 会审公堂)

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.
