Waller House

Immerse yourself in the lives of those who lived, created, loved, and lost in Waller House.

Napier and Christian Waller’s murals, mosaics and stained glass paintings adorn prominent buildings in Melbourne and their work is represented in major galleries. Their Ivanhoe home and studio has been left intact as a memorial.

The history of Waller House is often associated with the life and career of noted Australian muralist, mosaicist and stained glass artist Napier Waller. Less is known however about the women who also worked within these walls. Christian Waller worked alongside her husband to establish this superb Arts and Crafts style home, whilst also pursuing her own successful career.
