Lou Kau was a Chinese merchant who owned several properties in the city. His house was believed to be built in 1889, during the Qing dynasty. It remained in his family’s possession until 1910.
As one of the few remaining xinguan-style mansions still standing in Macau, Lou Kau Mansion employs both Chinese and Western architectural styles: oyster shell windows, cast iron railings, hanging scrolls, and brick carvings.
