Snøhetta | Heysen Gallery

The Heysen gallery located at Hahndorf in the Adelaide Hills pays homage to one of Australia’s most significant artist families. It is here that Hans Heysen first created his studio and family home, ‘The Cedars’, which has become one of the nation’s most significant artistic treasures.

The new design by Snøhetta will include a purpose-built gallery, art storage facility retail outlet and restaurant. By incorporating the surrounding landscape, the design will allow for a reinvigorated and immersive reading of the work of renowned artists Hans Heysen, and daughter Nora Heysen.

“Hans Heysen had a deep affection for, and played an active role in the conservation and protection of, the Australian landscape that he so passionately portrayed in his artwork. In-turn, the building will honour and protect the Heysens’ artwork and family story”
