Mandarin's House


Mandarin's House (Chinese: 鄭家大屋; Portuguese: Casa do Mandarim) is a historic residential complex in São Lourenço, Macau. It was the residence and family home of the late Qing theoretician and reformist Zheng Guanying (1842-1921). He completed his masterpiece of Shengshi Weiyan (Words of Warning in Times of Prosperity) in the house. Mandarin's House occupies an area of 4,000 square metres (43,000 sq ft), which is amongst the largest family houses in Macau.

Mandarin's House was built in 1869 (Eighth year of the reign of Emperor Tongzhi) by Zheng Guanyin's father Zheng Wenrui. Zheng Guanying and his brothers gradually enlarged the complex since. It was built largely in Cantonese style but is noted for its fusion of western architectural elements.
