This building, called Stadacona Hall, stands in the Sandy Hill neighbourhood, near a number of other embassies and diplomatic missions. Built in 1871 for a lumber baron, it was home from 1878-1883 to Prime Minister John A. Macdonald and his family before their move to Earnscliffe, another manor of the era. It has housed other diplomatic missions, and today serves as the High Commission for Brunei Darussalam. A High Commission is the same as an embassy, just used for those countries within the Commonwealth. It first took part in Doors Open last year, and its return again this year was welcome.
It is a beautiful building, both inside and out, though I took no shots inside, as there was a note last year about photo restrictions and I assume the same applied this year. Inside there were staffers speaking about the country, and tourism brochures. Brunei is divided into two parts on the island of Borneo, occuping a small portion of the island which is otherwise taken up by Indonesia and Malaysia.
