Outline

The Isahaya Museum of Art & History is in the historical and cultural center of Isahaya City. The interior and exterior of the museum were constructed by replicating the historical architecture of Isahaya with local materials and methods. There are walls made of Isahaya Stone, wooden vertical lattice seen in traditional townhouses, and Bengala (Indian red ocher rouge) reproduced through stuccowork.This design aims to not only pass on and preserve Isahaya’s historical and cultural heritage, but also reflect the philosophy of the museum, which will be a place for promoting culture and art.
