About Shikumen

Shikumen is a traditional Shanghainese architectural style combining Western and Chinese elements that first appeared in the 1860s. In the Western sense, shikumen structures are best described as lane houses or town houses. The typically three-story structures once predominated in Shanghai; however, they’ve since given way to modern high-rise housing. Many shikumen were demolished over the years to make way for redevelopment. Those that remain tend to be historic preservation areas or redevelopments designed to incorporate the shikumen style. Prominent examples of preserved shikumen include Shanghai’s Tianzifang and Xintiandi areas.
