Episode 3: Communication as a form of architecture
House for Hiroko: A new residential build for a couple who wanted a Japanese inspired home in Canberra. Two of the non-negoticables included a tea pod, and bathing pod, both focal aspects of Japanese culture. A house largely composed of brick, a warmer internal palette and glass walls invites you to experience Hiroko’s Japanese heritage.
Project type: New build
Clients: Ken and Hiroko Yamanaka
Architect: Anthony Knobel Architect

House for Hiroko was also awarded the Canberra Medallion and Malcolm Moir & Heather Sutherland Award for Residential Architecture – HOUSES (New) in the 2021 ACT Architecture Awards.
