In 1963, the Reeds commissioned David McGlashan of McGlashan and Everist to build a home that had a sense of mystery and romance, and one that would house their growing art collection—a ‘gallery to be lived in’. Join a volunteer guide and learn about the design and construction of the iconic modernist building.
