Like the title said, this is a private apartment, but also a famous apartment too.
The private is, this apartment was builted in 1930s, and always kept it original appearance like what it used to be - a private apartment.
The famous is, a Chinese writer Eileen Chang Reyher ever lived there.
I came in there was just for a memorial things, for a writer- Eileen Chang Reyher.
I feel glad- because the apartment is still here. I hope the old Shanghai's history can be keep and going on.

Changde Apartment, located close by Jing'an Temple Metro Station, is one of the city's most remarkable pieces of vernacular art-deco architecture. It is best known to Chinese for its literary associations: Chinese writer Eileen Chang wrote several semi-autobiographical novels here in the 1940s. But for us, the main appeal is the wonderful art-deco architecture, with rounded "ocean-liner" curves visible on the balconies in particular. The whole structure has a look of streamlined early modernity, with the central section characterized by geometric lines.

There is not exactly much to do here, however. For those wanting to linger a little longer, we'd advise stopping in at the book-store on the ground floor or buying a cake or pastry and the patisserie next door. The building could easily be combined with a visit to Shanghai's famous Jing'an Temple nearby.
