Information in English

This western style red-brick building originally functioned as a dining hall for honored guests and employees of the Meiji Sugar Manufacturing Company and, along with the  Wooden Guest House, it served as the club for their Taiwan headquarters. Today, this centenarian building has been repurposed as a craft exhibition hall -- a space for artists to display their pottery, wood, glass, and metal art. 

Although the dining hall underwent four or five renovations, it continued to serve its original purpose under the various owners until the Madou Sugar Factory ceased operations in 1993. Today, the dining hall and the wooden verandah retain their original appearance thus preserving an important cultural heritage for future generations.

The dining hall is a simple wood and brick construction, a single-story, brick bearing wall construction with the wooden roof supported by a king post truss. The dining area for honored guests was in the east and employees in the west. The rectangular façade of the building contains most of the building’s notable decorations, especially above the doors and windows. One of the structures most striking features are pilasters supporting the gable porch in the Western classical style. Sadly, the parapet and triglyph above the eaves and atop the exterior walls have all but disappeared. The architecture of the dining hall shares many similarities with the Red-brick Office such as the arch openings, decorations (the keystone and sills) and the ground floor wooden windows. The original materials and style of the building have been, for the most part, preserved.
