Within his project to develop Coral Gables, George E. Merrick decided that he would design small communities, or villages, within Coral Gables with different international influences.

Chinese Village: inspired by Oriental architecture, all houses are linked by a common wall, creating a unique compound. Architect: Henry Killam Murphy. 1926-1927. Contributing properties: bounded by Sansovino Avenue, Castania Avenue, Maggiore Street, Riviera Drive, and Menendez Avenue.
