Attractions near the San Want Residences
Explore Songshan Cultural Park
Built in 1937, this old factory produced tobacco and wine until 1998 and is now Taipei’s cultural and creative hub. The large commercial warehouses have been converted into chic white-walled gallery and creative spaces. Outside, the lush gardens make perfect performance areas. In 2011, this park was the venue for Taipei’s Arts Festival and the World Design Expo; the old warehouses providing limitless options for the visual arts and design industry.
While the main building carries the simplistic lines associated with Japanese architecture, the gardens outside were inspired by Baroque style. The fountain is especially popular with visitors – its voluptuous feminie sculptures are said to be based on female workers at the plant during its creation.
