Garden House

McCluskey Studio

Set on a tree-lined street in Victoria’s south-east, Garden House skilfully entwines a stately heritage dwelling with a contemporary glazed addition, crafting a cohesive, sanctuary-like family home connected to its established gardens.

Beyond, former incongruous additions are replaced with a double-height glazed ‘box’ that echoes the heritage home’s lofty proportions. Minimalist and light-filled, the addition effortlessly complements the original house, maintaining a focus on its charm and beauty, while delivering a luxurious volume for living and entertaining – central to the social nature of this family.
Built on the lands of the The Boonerwrung People of the Eora Nation.
