Chen Shih-yin's Fanzai Hall

     Set beside the Kuising building in Houpu, and occupying a large expanse of land, this Western influenced building was built in 1933.

   Typical of Kinmen, its construction also includes certain features influenced by the English Renaissance period (1558-1625). For example, the style of the windows at the front not only allows more sunlight to go in, but also offers a wider angle of view. Added to this, the elegant railings of the house and surrounding gardens are decorated with a variety of sculptures, all enhancing the distinctly European feeling.
