A Life Individual

Thursday 27th April 2017

A Life Individual’ offers a rare peek into the homes of a diverse group of Space clients and their families.

Today, we meet surgeon and art lover Terry Wu. Terry is passionate about Australian art. This infectious passion is reflected in his various contributions to Melbourne’s art community (he sits on the board of Heide Museum of Modern Art, and the Australian Centre for the Moving Image), and is evidenced in the seriously impressive art collection on display in his inner suburban home.

With a bold addition / extension designed by local architecture firm Multiplicity, incorporating a brave colour palette and meticulously crafted details, this truly unique home perfectly captures Terry’s vibrant creative spirit.

‘I feel a deep responsibility to nurture and support cultural endeavours, both for the community and for our children’s future.’ – Terry Wu
