Home and Gallery, Bemboka
by Allan Spira Architect

    

IN THE ARCHITECTS WORDS

The brief was for a house and gallery that could be used to showcase a large collection of Australian pottery, books and paintings. The building needed to be placed high on the block to capitalize on the river and mountain views, with broad northerly face and be sheltered
 
 

from the wind. From the road the building presents a modest single level facade with a welcoming verandah and glazed entry linking the home, gallery and deck and connecting via an open stair to the partially buried lower level bedrooms, storage areas and northerly garden.
