This remarkable avant-garde space was created by Fender Katsalidis Architects, the same firm that designed the Museum of New and Old Art (MONA) in Tasmania, recognised as one of Australia’s great architectural achievements.
For Karl Fender, given free rein by close friends Colleen and Elias Jreissati, it was a labour of love. In Karl they knew they had someone who shared their obsessed with perfection. And he repaid their faith with a building of timeless grandeur.
With glorious views of the vineyard and the Yarra Valley across a spacious Village Green, the building and grounds also feature an array of wonderful paintings and sculptures by Australian artists.
