Lukang Shiyilou
Shiyi-lou is also called “Paoma-lou.” It locates inside Lukang’s Jincheng Lane; it is Xia-Jia Trading Company Qingchang Chen Family’s residence. In the front of Shiyilou, it was the old Wufu Da St. (No.147 and No.149, Zhongshan Rd.) Shiyilou has the structure of two shop fronts, two structures, and one yard. In the house of the first structure, there is a stair well for catching the natural light and ventilation.

Shiyi-lou refers to “ancient Qin, board game, poem, wine, painting, flower, moon, chess, tobacco, and tea.” In Lukang Zhuzhi Poetry once mentioned that, “the wind cannot go to the Jiuqu Lane, and scholars spend leisure time reciting poems in Shiyi-lou”; the statement illustrated that Shiyi-lou was a place for poets and writers to get together in old times.

There is a gun tower beside Shiyi-lou; it was street fortifications in early years. The gun tower’s wall was designed to have three gun holes and two lookouts for overlooking the street’s activities, helping to defend pirates and bandits. Shiyi-lou’s rear door also had two door leaves. The wooden doors were covered with iron sheet. Layers of protections were set to ensure home safety.

Below the gun tower, we can see pottery jars arranging in a row; those were containers for wine-making or pickling in old days. The empty jars were used to make jar walls, giving consideration to both beauty and ventilation. In 2003, it was registered as a historic structure. Grand Lukang Shiyilou-1
