about this place

The Former French Mission Building (Chinese: 前法國外方傳道會大樓) is a declared monument of Hong Kong. It is located at 1, Battery Path, Central. It currently houses the Court of Final Appeal of Hong Kong. Originally a mansion called Johnston House, the building was altered in the 1870s and 1880s to a three storey building. The present three-storey building was built in 1917 after the previous structure was acquired in 1915. The building is probably based on a previous structure near the site known as "Beaconsfield", but it is clad in red brick rather than an all white facade. It is constructed in granite and red bricks in Neo-Classical style, dating from the Edwardian period. The building was onced used by HSBC and once home to the Russian Consulate. The building is built on a podium due to the hilly area of Government Hill.
