Located at Av. Conselheiro Ferreira de Almeida, the building that currently houses the Cultural Affairs Bureau is part of a notorious group of neoclassical buildings, erected in the early 20th century alongside the main road that extended out of the traditional city center. It is fronted by a continuous arcade façade, creating a transition area to mitigate Macau’s subtropical climate. Along its history, it served different roles, initially as an asylum, followed by the Portuguese school from 1924-1958, the Macau Health Services. After the handover, it had a major intervention with the preservation of the main façade and the construction of a new contemporary building behind it to serve as headquarters and office space for the Cultural Affairs Bureau.
