A haven. A work of art. A legacy.

In 1998 Australian designer Stuart Rattle purchased the dilapidated Musk schoolhouse and surrounding grounds. Over the following few decades it was to become his most enduring project – a true labour of love, with every detail of the buildings and grounds carefully considered. A sanctuary where Rattle could freely express his own taste. Now, this tribute to the much-loved designer takes you through every room and garden, with stunning photography by Earl Carter and Simon Griffiths. A beautiful memento of an extraordinary person.

All royalties from sales of this book go to Friends of Wombat Hill Botanic Gardens.
