RONG ZHAI

Located in Shaghai, Rong Zhai is a 1918 historic mansion built for the distinguished family of Yung Tsoong-King a century ago and recently restored by Prada. Since 2011, Milan-based global fashion brand Prada has been working with renovation specialist Architect Roberto Baciocchi on an epic revival of the home, one of Shanghai’s finest Western-style garden villas.

The result is as an emblem of Miuccia Prada and Patrizio Bertelli’s admiration of Chinese aesthetic heritage and a deep commitment to the city of Shanghai. The mansion serves as a unique site for the company’s diverse activities in China. The restoration of combines the experience in historic building, an abiding belief in the value of traditional handcraftsmanship, and a dynamic collaboration between Western architects and Chinese scholars and artisans.
