Indulging in the clients’ passion for gardening, a new double-height conservatory has been placed in the beautiful gardens of Minallo, a grand residence built in 1891. The new garden room provided a catalyst to re-orientate the ground floor living areas, providing better connections with the garden to further enhance the home.

JAWS Architects were commissioned to progressively renovate and enhance the Minallo home, the brief developed from a desire to connect each living area of the house better with its large garden. The work involved a new open plan kitchen and dining room with the installation of casement doors and windows. A pantry store and laundry were discretely positioned behind a glazed link which connects to a new double-height garden conservatory.

The indoor-outdoor room nestles into the garden, opening fully to a large deck. The view from this room creates a compelling vista upwards, towards the sky and to large trees beyond. The living room has altered from a thoroughfare into a restful room, with a new bay window creating a direct visual connection across the deck to the beautiful garden.

The new conservatory sits adjacent to the 1891 house, with its thick masonry walls and discrete openings. The building reads as a pavilion in the garden, designed as a lighter element, but with detailing that references the original building. The scale and detailing of the building refer to the proportions of the main house, utilising thick rendered masonry walls and finer steel plate framed glazing to abstractly reference the fenestration and massing of the existing house. The new link and storage elements separate the conservatory from the house, allowing it to read as a pavilion in the garden.
