Jakl's spaceship

Miles Jakl

When you’re in Canberra, it could be worth dining out on Red Hill at architect Miles Jakl’s 1964 spaceship restaurant, reopened in 2007 as Onred . The Oz reckon the lamb’s liver is worth checking out, if you’re into that kind of thing.

From what I can tell, Miles is still practicing in Los Angeles. Canberra House says the building was extended at some point by Enrico Taglietti.

Further on Miles Jakl, his only other commission in Canberra was a fine house in Deakin for the restaurateur owner of the above building, which he designed in 1967 prior to moving to LA.

I am ver grateful to see my father’s legacy live on in the wonderful structures that he designed. He was very prolific, very gifted as a visionary and true artist and had the amazing talent of integrating his artistic concepts with total functionality and practicality. his clients loved him as an architect and as a humble, kind and gentle person, always anxious to please them. He is very much missed RIP
