Art Deco in Sumedang

In the same compound with Prabu Geusan Ulun Museum Sumedang, Even before we enter the area, standing proud a less old building than the rest of its neighbor a massive structure with complex roofing.
I have no information about this building, when it was built, who's the architect and so forth; only that people call it Gedong Kabupaten ( Regency Office ). It's a typical Indonesian art deco architecture; simple stepped forms and repeating geometrical patterns, married with the traditional style roof and local ornaments (mostly adopted from Hindu temples) as embellishment. You'd see such style also in Bandung, capital of West Java. Gedung Sate, for instance, has the same concept with this building. Anyone can share more info about this?
Anyway, whatever it is, it's a beautiful building.
