9. 東2 / 四連棟



9. E2/Silian (Four-in-Row) Building

Covered by Japanese creepers, the Silian building was built in March of 1933 for storage of red wine. Due to the expansion of neighboring roads from 1981 to 1987, the building was reformed into a four-in-row space. The rectangular building is made of reinforced concrete beams and bricks while the entrance is topped with gable. Arch windows, stucco washing windowsills and horizontal friezes go perfectly with the iron-trussed asbestos roof. With Japanese all around, the building remains cool and able to show various looks in different seasons.
