Never Blue at the Blue Mansion in Penang, Malaysia

Exploring the lavish former residence of Malaysia’s Cheong Fatt Tze.

The whole mansion has five courtyards, 38 rooms, and 220 windows. As if that’s not lavish enough, the perfectly-cut tiles and intricate ironwork were all sourced from England! There were stained glass windows following the Art Nouveau style. Feng Shui was strictly observed during the construction of the mansions, with its location and interior piping system carefully designed to adhere to the principles. The whole structure is a thorough work of art, inside and out.
