Japanese Room

The Japanese Room was conceived in 1963 by staff member Professor Shigeru Yura as a contemporary interpretation of traditional Japanese interior design. Reflecting the Faculty’s long-standing connection with Asia, our treasured Japanese Room and Terrace have been sensitively restored and elevated to the top floor of our new building. Opening onto a terrace with superb views of the campus, the Japanese Room is a contemporary interpretation of traditional Japanese interior design. This elegant space incorporates elements of the original 1960s design by Shigeru Yura, with minor modifications to meet current standards for lighting, ventilation and audio-visual presentation.

The Japanese Room is a contemporary interpretation of traditional Japanese interior design and comprises a unique meeting space. The room contains many preserved elements and furnishings from the original room in the old Architecture building, which means that meetings in this room must adhere to the policies and procedures outlined below.
