Real Estate service / product line "MENG HOUSE™" by Peter Hsiang-Kai Meng 孟祥凱 - 75th decendant of Mengzi (c. 372—289 B.C.E.) who was a Ruism philosopher, which is described as tradition or simply a way of life.  Mengzi is best known for his claim that “human nature tends good" and people should "dwell in benevolence and righteousness."  It is reflective of Confucius teaching "when you choose a living environment, how can you consider yourself wise if you don't choose a residential area that is full of kindness and virtuous?"  Mengzi's mother is often held up as an exemplary female figure in Chinese culture. One of the most famous traditional Chinese four-character idioms is 孟母三遷 (pinyin: mèngmǔ-sānqiān; literally: 'Mengzi's mother moves three times'); this saying refers to the legend that Mengzi's mother moved houses three times before finding a location that she felt was suitable for the child's upbringing. As an expression, the idiom refers to the importance of finding the proper environment for raising children.  The trademark graphic is actually the "Meng" Chinese last name character symbolizes a human above the house.
