Safulak Art Village is located in Hsinchu County's Baoshan Township, on No.63 Shanhu Road. "Safulak" is the former name of Baoshan Shanhu Village, and it is a hilly terraced land with sandy soil. The soil and water conservation is often neglected, and after heavy rains, floating sand can be found everywhere in the creek, hence the name "Safulak", which means "sandy lake". The art village was built in the year 1974, and contains three cultural and historical buildings. One of the brick bungalows in the area built during the Japanese occupation era was the former residence of Mr. Gu Yaoji.
