Blue House, a 4-storey balcony-type tenement block located at 72-74A Stone Nullah Lane, Wan Chai, named for the brilliant blue colour painted on its external walls. It is one of the few remaining examples of "Tong Lau" (唐樓) of the balcony type in Hong Kong. All the upper floors of Blue House, apart from 72 Stone Nullah Lane, are of timber structures. The two wooden stairs, with all the original elements intact, are well maintained. The building was part of a HK$100 million plan, unveiled by the Housing Society and the Urban Renewal Authority, to preserve nine Chinese-style buildings in Wan Chai that were constructed during the 1920s.
