  • Built in the 1930s, the building covers a floor area of 520 sq m . It is a Spanish-style garden residence.

    The building has two floors and partially three floors. With a simple Spanish style, it has a low-pitched roof paved with Spanish imbrexes. There was originally a semi-circular colonnade on the first floor in the south. The walls are covered with light yellow sgraffito, while the doors and windows are partially decorated with curvilinear decorations commonly seen in Spanish architecture. The architectural plane is slightly zigzag. The first floor of the south facade has a triple arch doorway. The western outer wall protrudes forward, above is the second-floor balcony with railings decorated with curvilinear architraves and cement carving patterns. The center of the second-floor wall has a protruding balcony with cast iron patterned railings. The main entrance is an arched doorway, with multiple petal-shaped architraves on the door frame, a flower-shaped round window for daylighting above the door lintel, and flower beds beside the door and under the windows.

    The building was originally the residence of Li Jilan, Vice Minister of General Staff of the Nationalist Government and lieutenant general. After the founding of the People’s Republic of China in 1949, Wei Wenbo, Secretary of the CPC Shanghai Municipal Committee, and others lived here.

    On September 23, 1999, the site was announced by Shanghai Municipal People’s Government as a Heritage Architecture in Shanghai (under Class II Protection).
