The study hall is a medium size Qing (清) vernacular building having a two-hall-one-courtyard plan of three bays. The open courtyard is between the halls and flanked by two side chambers, one on each side. Through staircases at the main halls’ side rooms, the library on the first floor can be reached. A footbridge is connected the library to the upper storey of the Ching Shu Hin (清暑軒), a guest house of the family, next to the Hall. It is in symmetrical design with the altar at the far end of the central axis in the middle of the main hall. The building was constructed of green bricks with its walls and columns supporting the pitched roofs. The recessed entrance has fine granite door frame, wall bases, wall corners and lintel above which is the finely carved stone name board of the study hall. The entire building is with richly ornated decorations. Its ridges are with mouldings of auspicious floral treasures and geometric patterns. Wall and gable friezes and fascia board are with paintings and carvings of fruits, flowers, treasures, scrolls and other motifs.
