Wintjiri Gallery & Museum is a key feature in the iconic Uluru resort at Yulara in the Northern Territory.
The Gallery and Museum was originally built in the mid 1980’s as part of the resorts development. After successfully operating for 35 years the buildings and the facilities were starting to show their age. The owner-operator Voyages, came to RDL to design and build a new fitout to suit their current needs and give the existing buildings a new lease on life.
Our design is a refreshed modern gallery that responds to is red centre context. The colours and plantings to the exterior give the sense of an oasis. While the interior materials and finishes have been carefully considered to create a neutral backdrop on which to display the vibrant works of the local Artists. The main gallery is a flexible multipurpose space that can accommodate a range of operations including functions, Artist residencies, curated tours and cultural learning. Contemporary multimedia displays are hidden in the bulkheads and the floorplan can be instantly reconfigured via the large custom movable display walls.
