The architectural drawings of Goon(郡) office buildings in Japanese colonial period collected in the national archives of Korea, were recently made as digital images, and their annotation published. On these basic research materials for the buildings a few papers were published. The purpose of this study is to investigate the tendency of the buildings’ new construction and their architectural characteristics such as structure, scale or elevation composition. It used literature research method, i.e. analysing the digital images, the annotation, official documents between the Japanese government-general of Korea and To(道), and related articles of newspapers or journals. It found that the buildings were begun to newly construct from early 1910s, very early compared to To and Pu(府) office buildings, but the new construction were not sufficient from the point of total Goon’s number(218). The reason of the early new construction is estimated that because the Japanese Government-General of Korea rearranged Goon in 1914 and 1915, therefore new buildings were needed in newly designated locations for the buildings. The structure of the buildings were mostly made of wood or brick, the size of them has very big deviation but no tendency toward time or region. The elevation composition of them was applied that of public offices in Japanese colonial period, and affected from the prototype scheme in 1910s by Government-General of Korea until 1930s.
