Lujia House is a model of Chinese and Western cooperation and compatibility. First look at the window: there are oyster shell windows in Lingnan, Manchuria windows, and Western-style cast iron flowers; then look at the wall: the green brick wall of Xiguan House, some of the walls are decorated with Chinese landscape wood carvings, brick carvings; finally, the door: the upper part is exquisite carvings, light and breathable, the lower part is carved with long and beautiful patterns such as bamboo leaves. From the color point of view, there are not only the passionate and unrestrained stained glass, but also the solemn and calm black paint gate. A rare boutique.
In the lobby, the staff instructed me to take the old man with me. They also said that the old man could rest in his seat. Sure enough, the chair had the sign of "love seat". The regular three-in-three structure, the painted brick carvings on the walls are exquisite, the attic opens regularly with explanations, and the courtyard is planted with bamboo green growth, with orchids in full bloom on the few.
Three relatives with the same family name, let alone the townsman, so the Lujia House must be visited. It's next to the famous lemon car dew, opposite Hengyou Yudan, walking in the direction of Dasanba from the front of the meeting room, looking up at the sign, it's easy to see. But when there are open hours, be careful not to be too late. It seems that you are not allowed to enter the arena at 4:00 or 4:30. Moreover, Lujia House may be closed for repair recently, so try your luck earlier. It's not very big and has a few entries, but all the handicraft is very fine. Don't just look at the size of the house. The most important thing is to look at the windows, beams, reliefs and so on. There is no such handicraft now. Don't shout or scream during the visit. Take care of the children and don't run around. The security guards are very conscientious.
The first one to go near Dasanba is the Lujia House. Located in No. 7 of Lobby Lane, also known as Jinyutang, is the old residence of the famous businessman Lu Huashao (Lu Jiu) family. According to the year of inscribing poems on the eaves of the courtyard in the left part of the house, it was completed in 1889, about fifteen years of Guangxu in Qing Dynasty. When they went there, they were performing. The hall was full of people, and the upstairs were not open. They couldn't visit three or two floors. They could only take a look at the hall. The exquisite windows were hollowed out and the stone carvings of the arch were made. Although free, but there is no Zheng's courtyard to look forward to.
Visits are free. Tour guides are available for a fixed period of time. Advance booking is required. But when we went there was a tour guide talking about it, and he just listened to it. The tour guide said that the ceiling here was the first in Lingnan area. Because according to the structure of ancient Chinese architecture, houses usually have beams, but the Lingnan area is very humid, the roof beams are mostly eroded by termites, so the roof beams are particularly easy to collapse. Therefore, the roof of Lujia's house borrowed from the Western architecture, built a floor at the bottom of the beam (that is, the current ceiling), and then placed between the beam and the floor the medicine to expel termites, so the roof beams of Lujia's house have been well preserved.
The Lujia House is not far from the front of the conference hall, where there are many forks. The way to the Macau Catholic Church is. Facade is relatively low-key, if not accustomed to looking for a World Heritage Sign, it is likely to pass by and miss. The area is not as big as Zheng's house, but the protection inside is better, especially the fine gray sculptures that can be seen everywhere. Every day there are regular free lectures, but unfortunately I go to the wrong time, with the lecturer, you can go to the second floor to visit.
