Add:900, Sanxin Rd N.
Thames Town in Songjiang is very English in architecture. After exploring it for hours on your legs, you can’t resist the temptation to enter a bookstore and do some reading to rest your legs. Zhongshuge is such a bookstore at a quiet street corner. Its décor is a mix of Chinese and Western elements. Nice quotes in different languages are on a glass wall covering its facade.
The two-story building has a central court surrounded by bookshelves, reminding one of the Chinese character 回. The pillar in the middle is covered with mirrors to reflect the theme of “Reading in heaven.” Cushioned seats are set between bookshelves for people to sit and read or get lost in meditation. There is a meeting room on the second floor for seminar or salon activities.
