  • No.190 Yuqing Road, built in 1936, is a garden residence of the modern architectural style.


    The residence is composed of a main building (three floors) and an auxiliary building (originally two floors). Its form is simple, and the check-patterned wall surface is painted with cement mortar. A corner of the main entrance is built on stilts to form a porch, and the second and third floors are set back to form a terrace. There is no excessive decoration on the facades, basically presenting the modern architectural style. However, the decorative geometric patterns on the columns and the cast-iron railings of the interior stairs reflect the influence of the Art Deco style.


    Former Shanghai mayors Chen Yi and Ke Qingshi both lived here. It is now used by a municipal kindergarten.

    On September 23, 1999, the site was announced by Shanghai Municipal People’s Government as a Heritage Architecture in Shanghai.
