Descripción

Designed by Spanish architect Abelardo Lafuente in North Sichuan Road (present day 2081-2093) for his friend and patron the cinema impresario Antonio Ramos.

The building is composed around four different staircases, with two apartments in each floor. A fourth floor was added later to the original three. The apartments, which open to the front and back facades, are organized around inner courtyards in the back, a typical element in Spanish architecture seldom used in China and which bestows the building its historical and architectonic interest.

Today, a board in the facade identifies the building as a cultural asset for its architectonic value and the fact that writer Lu Xun lived in the third floor in the 1930s.
