Wooden Official Residence
Information in English

This Japanese style wooden structure began as the residence for the Meiji Sugar Company’s chairman during the Japanese colonial period and, after 1950, under the Taiwan Sugar Company, it served as the residence of the factory general manager and later the second temporary staff quarters. Today, the spatially simple traditional wooden structure is used as an art and culture exhibition area.

The residence was built with the close attention to detail typical of Japanese houses of the period.The main structure is made of Chinese cypress that continues to infuse the residence with its fragrance after 100 years. The roof is laid with elegant, black Japanese-style tiles.

Although the residence’s initial design included only the middle section, additions to the east and southwest were added during original construction to enlarge the building. The connections on the wooden roof truss where these portions were added are still visible. There were several renovations and additions after 1950, but there have been no significant changes to the building’s exterior. The residence has three units, each with differing trusses; the middle section has the largest, then the east wing, followed by the west wing with the smallest truss.

The area surrounding the Wooden Official Residence is a peaceful expanse of land with both European and Japanese style courtyards. Two stone lanterns in the Japanese garden lend an atmosphere of simplicity and elegance to the domicile.
