Lou Kau Mansion – The historical traditional house in Macau

The building was built around 1889 as a home of Lou Kau, a prominent Chinese merchant. Lou Kau Mansion is a two-storey, traditional grey-brick courtyard house, with the architectural characteristics of a typical Xiguan Chinese residential building.

The building has been listed as part of the historic center of Macau and a protected property in 1992. In 2002, the Macau Bureau of Culture started the maintenance for the building and was eventually opened to the public in 2005.

The house is Chinese in its structure, while some of the decorative motifs also incorporate subtle western influences / Image source
