Back when Huai Hai Road was still called Avenue Joffre, a wealthy Chinese entrepreneur built a villa on this street. As his wealth increased, he added a second villa, identical to the first. The stately buildings are now home to Dunhill, Vacheron Constantin, and the exclusive KEE Club. In 2008, Kokaistudios architects were hired to renovate the Twin Villas. They brought renewed sparkle to the fine wooden floors, staircases, and stained glass windows and turned 796 Huai Hai Lu into one of the city’s most exclusive addresses.
