16. 紅磚區   


   1917年(日治大正6年),「三井」與「鈴木」兩大財閥合資成立台灣精製樟腦株式會社。第二年,1918年2月,台灣精製樟腦株式會社併入日樟,成為「日本樟腦株式會社台北支店」,本店位在神戶,台北負責生產精製樟腦的「昇華工場」,就位在芳釀酒場的西北側,這就是今天的「紅磚六合院」。

    紅磚六合院不但是華山園區歷史第二悠久的建築,還是台灣現存日治中期從事樟腦加工提煉的現代化廠房中,僅有的兩處之一(另一為專賣局南門工場,現在變身為國立台博館南門園區);2007年5月又發現全台唯一留存的日治時期精製樟腦煙道,因此在同年10月被台北市文化局列為歷史建築,見證台灣樟腦產業發展的一頁。

 

16. Red Brick Area


In 1917, two major conglomerates Mitsui and Suzuki of Japan joint-ventured to found the Taiwan Camphor Company and later became the official overseas branch of the mother company in Kobe Japan in February the following year. The camphor factory located on the north-western side from the wine factory is today’s red-brick courtyard house.

The courtyard house is the second oldest building of Huashan and was the earliest modern camphor processing and manufacturing factory in Taiwan. The red-brick and   
the state-run South-Gate factory (now a branch of National Taiwan Museum) are the only two historic sites left today for camphor production. In May of 2007, the smoke duct in the factory was discovered and the Cultural Affairs Department of Taipei City designated the place the official historic site in October the same year.
