Magistrate's Court Turned Into an Art School 法院變藝術學院

Magistrate's Court Turned Into an Art School

The North Kowloon Magistracy was built in 1960 and it had served the Kowloon district of Hong Kong for 44 years before it was closed and later converted into the Hong Kong campus of Savannah College of Art and Design. The building was one of the few surviving examples of neo-classical and stripped classicism architecture in Hong Kong, therefore making it an important historic building in Hong Kong.

北九龍裁判法院建於1960年並服務九龍區四十四年至2005年關閉。2009年,美國薩凡納藝術設計學院投得此建築物的使用權並成立香港分部。北九龍裁判法院屬西方新古典式多層建築,香港現全此風格的建築物已所剩無幾, 是香港重要的歷史建築物
