Shek Lo

Shek Lo

Situated to the east of Tsung Kyam Church, Shek Lo was built in 1925 by Mr Tsui Yan-sou, who was also the founder of Wah Yan College. The two-storey building is a blend of Chinese and Western architectural styles and has a lawn at the front. Despite its colonial-style characteristics, the building has a traditional Chinese pitched roof supported on wooden purlins and battens and covered by Chinese clay tiles. Other notable features include the courtyard and also the layout of the rooms, which is similar to that of traditional Chinese residences. Located in the middle of the parapet of the roof is a semi-circular brick wall engraved with the characters “Shek Lo”.

This private property is not open to the public.
