Australia House


Perception of this gallery, studio and atelier in Japan alternates between the familiar presence of a rural dwelling and that of an art object. The mysterious blackened timber exterior contrasts to the warm honey-coloured timber interior – providing an unexpected sense of welcome and warmth. A synthesis of Japanese and Australian architectural traditions, elements of both the Australian Georgian farmhouse and the Japanese Minka are present.
