As a luxurious mansion built for 21st Century living, Mandarin Court (Jiu Jang Tang) villas have inherited the spirit of traditional Chinese courtyard residences, which is most vividly expressed in their spatial articulation, interplay of light and spaces, and the subtlety in material usage. Yet, despite the strong cultural resonance, the design of the villas has rejected outright on any revivalist gesture or pastiche symbolism. Instead, an uncompromisingly modern and unpompous approach has been taken to honestly reflect the times where the buildings belong.
