A redevelopment of Yellowhouse, Martin Sharpe’s interpretation of Vincent Van Gogh’s vision of an artistic fraternity. The Martin Browne Art Gallery re-instates one of the sites historical uses. Intended as an oasis of light and reflection against the frenetic pace of Macleay Street, the design is subtly sculptural and deliberately restrained, to allow the art itself a generous amount of blank canvas.

The space unfolds dramatically towards a central opening to the sky; below this is a raised lily pool with darting fish (a reminder of the artists themselves) which provides a seat and focal point to the space.
