Red Brick Building will be closed from October 1 due to the renovations
Renovation work on the Red Brick Building
The former Hokkaido Government Office Building (the Red Brick Building) is one of Hokkaido’s historical buildings, and has been designated as one of the nation’s important cultural assets. As 50 years have passed since its restoration work in 1968, deterioration of the building has been dramatically progressing. Taking the year of 2018 as a turning point which marked that this land renamed as Hokkaido, a large- scaled renovation will be conducted in order to preserve the historic value of the Red Brick Building which is a precious asset passed down from our ancestors, as well as to pass it down to the next generation.
Outline of the Renovation Works
Through the renovation, preservation and repair works as well as earthquake-resistant repair work will be conducted. A more “Barrier-free” design will be also adopted.
FY 2019 renovation works will be started FY 2022 to be completed
