Allessandro Maandini's Ryokan revolves around a fabulous building tucked away adjacent to the top of the Old Belair Rd. at Blackwood, just fifteen minutes up Fullarton Rd from the city. The building was the brainchild of Adelaide architect Peter Villis. He was inspired by Japanese Architect Professor Koshio Kawashima whilst studying under him at the Japanese Institute of Architects in Tokyo.
This building whilst modernist in concept draws on Zen philosophy of creating an environment to live in that is at peace with its environment. To that end Villis designed a five level building of highest structural integrity using steel and specially transported Bendigo White Clay Brick and external walls of glass, that sheet light into spaces that cantilever towards an inner atrium with a central Japanese stone garden.
Since 1998 this exquisitely decorated Japanese interior has played host to many visitors from all over the world that have come to enjoy the ambience of silver service quality Japanese food presented fireside in the guests own private dining room overlooking a backlit Japanese garden.
Allessandro Maandini's Ryokan has found some interesting facts about Australia that may surprise you.
