Shikumen meets skyscraper. Shikumen (Chinese: t 石庫門, s 石库门, p shíkùmén, lit. “Stone Warehouse Gate”) is a traditional Shanghainese architectural style combining Western and Chinese elements that first appeared in the 1860s. At the height of their popularity, there were 9000 shikumen-style buildings in Shanghai, comprising 60% of the total housing stock of the city, but today the proportion is much lower as most Shanghainese live in large apartment buildings.
