A Casa do Mandarim - The Mandarin's House is the former residence owned by eminent modern Chinese thinker Zheng Guanying and his father Zheng Wenrui. This house was built around 1881 and it has the characteristics of traditional Guangdong's residences. Yet, it also features a fusion of architectural influences from western cultures, making it a unique product of Chinese and western cultural interchange.
The Mandarin's House is very large, occupying an area of 4000m2 on which are buildings and open spaces designed in various architectural styles. The entire complex has more than 60 rooms in total. Around 1950s to 1960s, the descendants of the Zheng's family moved out to live in different places. The Mandarin's House was then rented out. At one time, there were more than 300 tenants packed inside the complex, constituting to poor living conditions. The carrying capacity of the complex was pushed to limits.
Sometimes is hard to find Macanese music in Macau, but here I have found a CD of the Chinese Orchestra of Macau.
