The Gallery Studio, our largest bedroom, was originally built as a cowshed in the 1970s but was later transformed into a gallery for Bawa to house his precious art collection. Transom windows capture Bawa’s iconic play of light and shade throughout the day, and just outside the entrance is a private courtyard with weathered ochre walls and gothic flourishes.
At the very centre of the suite sits a four-poster king-sized bed dressed in crisp linen, which gazes beyond a glass wall into the generous courtyard. In the granite-floored bathroom are a traditional freestanding Victorian tub and separate rain shower. This room feels private and secluded and is a popular option for couples and honeymooners.
The suite is located around 100 metres from the main house, beyond the Eastern Terrace.
