Description

Designer/Maker: Mortimer Lewis (attributed)
Construction years: 1839-1840
Physical description: Garryowen Estate and House (the latter is now called the NSW Writer's Centre):
Garden:
Callan Park House (fmr. Garry Owen)'s siting and setting:
In the northern part of the ridgetop zone is the area immediately surrounding Garryowen House, which faces north towards Iron Cove, its former carriage loop to the north now grassed with scattered trees. The house was built on a curved earth terrace projecting from the slope (the edge of the sandstone ridge where the land begins to fall away at the top of the slopes) with commanding views over Iron Cove (1991 Heritage Study of Rozelle Hospital). The trees comprise (spotted gums, jacarandas), a Cape plumbago hedge (P.capensis) to the east screening the 1880s Kirkbride Block of Callan Park (Rozelle Hospital). To the west Garry Owen's garden front continues to face a surviving remnant of its pleasure garden (framed by the 1880s James Barnet-designed sandstone cottage) with a huge evergreen/southern magnolia/bull bay tree (M.grandiflora), a red semi-double (marbled/blotched white) Camellia japonica cv. and other smaller shrubs (Stuart Read, 22/7/2013).

To the rear (south) former service yards have been paved over around various wing extensions and other buildings - there is little sense of former garden or yards to the rear.

Fragments of the house's once long, serpentine driveway to the south to Balmain Road remain, although altered (Stuart Read, pers.comm., 6/2017).

It retains some early estate and garden layout, showing the influence of English pattern books on laying out a garden - with axial approach to the front door with a carriage loop. Garryowen also retains some early plantings, such as an old (1.5m trunk girth) evergreen or Southern magnolia /bull bay, (M.grandiflora) and a Camellia japonica cv. (double rich ruby red with a fleck of white) west of the house's main garden front (western side) in front of Garry Owen Cottage (1880s). Four mature jacarandas (J.mimosifolia), 3 cabbage tree palms (Livistona australis) and a cedar wattle (Acacia elata) are to Garryowen's north. A Cordyline stricta, a Western Australian peppermint (Agonis flexuosa) and a hedge of Cape plumbago (P.capensis) are to the house's north-east. To the north-west (closer to Garryowen Cottage) are a Bunya pine (Araucaria bidwillii), 3 Bhutan cypresses (Cupressus torulosa) and a Norfolk Island hibiscus tree (Lagunaria patersonia. To the west are more jacaranda trees (Stuart Read, pers.comm., 6/2017).

Garry Owen / Garryowen House (now the NSW Writers' Centre):
This, the first building on the (entire Callan Park) site, c.1837-39, was originally a grand private residence and prominent in Leichhardt society (1991 Heritage Study of Rozelle Hospital).

The house has two main front rooms (drawing room and dining room) accessed through sliding doors from a central hall, enabling the opening of both right up into a large single ballroom, similar to that of Government House (which Mortimer Lewis had implemented, overseeing the plans prepared by English architect, Edmund Blore. It shows Lewis' architectural trademarks, such as reeded, rather than fluted mouldings in the tops of window cases, floor skirtings are panelled, French doors onto the verandahs (onto the entrance front (north) and garden front (west) sides of the house (these doors were later changed by James Barnet to hung windows). The octagonal asphalt paving blocks on the verandah floors are a trademark of James Barnet, also seen at his Police & Justice Museum near Circular Quay and South West Rocks Lighthouse. The Library and another room are divided by sliding doors. A gardener's cottage has 6 rooms (Griffin, pers.comm., 2013).

The original small cottage has been incorporated into the present mid-Victorian two storey building. Later additions have been made to the east and south. The formal stair hall has a fine Neoclasical interior and central domed ceiling, with stained glass inserts and a cantilevered sandstone staircase, with iron and timber balustrades, two wall niches on the southern wall. There is a centrally placed entrance on the north elevation with elegant fanlight and classically detailed moulded entablature. It is constructed of rendered brick ashlar coursed single-storey verandah with timber supports and posts, corrugated iron roofed. The main roof is of galvanised iron, hidden behind the parapet. Extensive brick additions to the east which have been rendered and painted (1992, Preliminary Heritage & Conservation Register - Central District Area Health Service).

The rendered brick building has a five bay elevation to the north and three bays to the east. A single storey corrugated iron verandah along full length of both elevations and supported by a series of chamfered square timber posts. Floor of unusual hexagonal bricks. Galvanised iron roof is hidden by a low parapet. The stucco walls lined to simulate stone blocks (RNE).

The house was adapted as an asylum in 1875/76 prior to the building of the Kirkbride Block and though altered and extended is substantially intact (ibid, 1991).

Extract from Preliminary Heritage and Conservation Register - Central District AHS (1992):Description
Construction - Rendered brick ashlar coursed single storey verandah with timber supports and posts; corrugated iron roofed. Main roof of galvanised iron hidden behind the parapet. Extensive brick additions to the east which has been rendered and painted (CDAHS, 1992).

Garry Owen Cottage (1880s)
Adjacent is a (sand)stone cottage designed by Colonial Architect James Barnet as part of the 'Kirkbride Design'. The stone cottage is sited on the edge of Garryowen's earth platform, and together with the group of Convalescent cottages (zone 5) forms part of the deliberately composed picturesque setting for the Kirkbride Block. Also a small male attendants' cottage designed by WL Vernon is a neutral element in the zone and is a good example of its type (ibid, 1991).

Directly north-east of the cottage is a large Norfolk Island hibiscus (Lagunaria patersonia) tree, unfortunately toppled in a storm in 2015. Its stump is re-sprouting. Further north is a large mature Bunya pine (Araucaria bidwillii) and to the cottage's north-west an orchid tree (Bauhinia x variegata) (Stuart Read, pers.comm., 7/2017).
Physical condition and/or
Archaeological potential:
The 2002 Tanner & Associates CMP (section 3.3 Historical Archaeological Assessment by Casey & Lowe) identifies (in figure 3.10) buildings considered to have potential. These all belong to the initial years of the hospital period (pre 1900) covering the original hospital buildings, initial additions and changes. Zone 4 is the Kirkbride Block & Garry Owen House precinct. Underground tanks occur in both areas. Garry Owen was known to have more outbuildings. The primary archaeological resource is seen as the standing buildings and sites of demolished buildings and outbuildings and their capacity to provide information about their original configuration and associated archaeological deposits such as underfloor and yard area deposits. Changing building configuration is particularly relevant to the changing nature of care for the mentally ill.
Date condition updated:22 Jul 13
Modifications and dates: 1839 Garry Owen House built.
1885 Kirkbride Complex built.
1988 Major changes from the "Barclay Report" of 1988. Upgrading works at Rozelle Hospital, including restoration, refurbishment and selling of some land to fund the works.
1991+ Construction of a new psychiatric complex located off the south-western corner of the Kirkbride block, and the use of the Kirkbride block for psychiatric care was subsequently phased out (Wayne McPhee & Associates, 2006).

1992 feasibility study to accomodate the Sydney College of the Arts (University of Sydney) in the Kirkbride block and subsequent rezoning and development of the facility. At the end of 1992 it was proposed to lease the Kirkbride block to the University for occupation by the College of the Arts. The University undertook extensive conservation and adaptive reuse works to accomodate the College within the Kirkbride buildings.

Garry Owen House has been restored for use by the NSW Writers' Centre. In May 1990 the Special Projects Section of the Public Works Department prepared a report on Garry Owen House for the Ministry for the Arts. This examined the cultural signficance and existing condition of the building and estimated cost of repairs. This was the basis for the restoration now complete. (Tanner & Associates, 2002).

History

Historical notes: Before European settlement the Wangal clan or band lived at the site and their territory extended along the Parramatta River from about Petersham westward. The Wangal were part of the Eora or Dharug tribes. Due to a small pox epidemic between 1789 and 1790 and European land development, only about 50 people from Dharug families were living in the Sydney area by 1900. (Wayne McPhee, 2006).

Rozelle Hospital site forms part of Leichhardt Municipality, a district formed by 15 land grants between 1789 and 1821. The areas west of the peninsular were slow to develop, however the later land grants were instrumental in developing Rozelle Hospital (Wayne McPhee, 2006).

There were 2 small grants to Francis Lloyd who received 50 acres in 1819 (Portion 112, Parish of Petersham) and Luke Ralph who received 50 acres in 1821 (Portion 113). These adjoining grants stretched from Long or Iron Cove to Rozelle Bay. To their west, Lawrence Butler received 100 acres in 1819 (Portion 114). These grants by the 1840s were in common ownership and became Garry Owen estate, later known as Callan Park.

To the west of Butler's grant was John Austen's 100 acre grant which he received in 1819 (Portion 115, Parish of Petersham). This estate was initially called Spring Cove, but by the 1840s was known as Austenham. The two relevant houses on this estate were called Austenham or Kalouan and Broughton House. The Garry Owen estate was separated from the Broughton House/Austenham estate by a line formed by the extension northward of Wharf Road. (Tanner & Associates, 2002).

Callan Park was originally owned by Crown Solicitor and Police Magistrate John Ryan Brenan. Brenan's residence, Garry Owen House, was built about 1839 and possibly was designed by Colonial Architect Mortimer Lewis. it is one of the oldest surviving houses in the area.

In 1841 Brenan bought an additional three acres west of his estate and built Broughton House, which he then sold with its extensive grounds in 1845.

The construction of Pyrmont Bridge in 1857 and Glebe Island Bridge in 1862 and the Iron Cove Bridge in 1880 opened up land to the west of Rozelle and generated speculative subdivision. Although large estates were rapidly subdivided, the houses and original curtilage of Broughton House and Garry Owen House remained rare survivors within the grounds of Rozelle Hospital. (Wayne McPhee, 2006).

In 1864 Brenan sold the estate to Sydney business man John Gordon. Gordon renamed the property Callan Park and in 1873 subdivided the land for auction as a new waterfront suburb. The Callan Park Estate was purchased by the Colonial Government of New South Wales, led by Henry Parkes, and Charles Moore, then Director of the Botanic Gardens, was entrusted with designing the grounds.

Moore travelled extensively during his long tenure as curator of the Botanic Gardens, and collected rainforest trees from Northern NSW and palms and kauris (Agathis spp.) from the Pacific Islands. Moore's legacy can be seen at Callan Park/Broughton House in the mature Moreton Bay fig, (Ficus macrophylla), Port Jackson fig, (F.rubiginosa), Bunya pines, (Araucaria bidwillii), hoop pines, (A.cunninghamii), kauri pines, (Agathis spp), palms such as the very tall cotton palms/ Washingtonias, (W.filifera and W.robusta), Canary Island date palm, (Phoenix canariensis) and pygmy date palm, (P. roebellinii), giant bamboo clumps and other rainforest trees. A notable specimen is the rare Coolamon or rose apple, (Syzygium moorei), named after Charles Moore, growing east of Broughton Hall's rainforest gully plantings along the creek line.

Garry Owen was purchased in 1874 by Sir Henry Parkes for use as an annexe to Gladesville Mental Hospital in 1874.

From 1876 it was the training centre for Gladesville Hospital nursing staff (Collins, 1991).

The magnificent Kirkbride Block of sandstone and brick buildings and courtyards was completed in 1885 for the Callan Park Psychiatric Hospital. This complex is now the campus of the Sydney College of the Arts. Garry Owen House is now used as the NSW Writers' Centre.

During the first world war changes to mental health care were instigated and in 1914 patients could only be treated if they were committed into one of the major institutions. Broughton Hall was resumed by the Government for repatriation care and this function became one of the main functions of Callan Park with additional facilities built in the grounds.

During the early years of the 20th century health professionals pushed for early intervention in mental illness. In 1921 Broughton Hall opened as a voluntary admission clinic, which, through later years under Sydney Evan Jones, became the largest voluntary facility in Australia. The use of gardens was an integral part of the patients' treatment and paths, ponds and bridges were built throughout the grounds.

Major changes to the Rozelle Hospital site were an outcome of the "Barclay Report" of 1988, which emphasised the need for a balance of services between community and hospital-based services. Upgrading works at Rozelle Hospital, including restoration, refurbishment and selling of some land to fund the works, were a direct result. Construction of a new psychiatric complex located off the south-western corner of the Kirkbride block was commenced in 1991, and the use of the Kirkbridge block for psychiatric care was subsequently phased out. The Central Sydney Area Health Service began to investigate alternative uses for buildings with heritage significance, in addition to assessing the future use of under used facilities throughout the hospital. (Wayne McPhee & Associates, 2006).

In 1990 the Historic Buildings Group of the NSW Dept. of Public Works prepared detailed conservation guidelines for the Kirkbride block to assist in assessing the feasibility of its use by the University of Sydney for the College of the Arts. In 1992 the Property Services Group undertook a feasibility study to accomodate the Sydney College of the Arts (University of Sydney) in the Kirkbride block and subsequent rezoning and development of the facility. At the end of 1992 it was proposed to lease the Kirkbride block to the University for occupation by the College of the Arts. The University undertook extensive conservation and adaptive reuse works to accomodate the College within the Kirkbride buildings.

Garry Owen House was restored for use by the NSW Writers' Centre. In May 1990 the Special Projects Section of the Public Works Department prepared a report on it for the Ministry for the Arts. This examined the cultural signficance and existing condition of the building and estimated cost of repairs. This was the basis for the restoration now complete (Tanner & Associates, 2002). The Hon. Peter Collins MP, MInister for the Arts opened it as the NSW Writers' Centre on 23/9/1991 as a centre for NSW writers (Collins, 1991).

For much of the twentieth century the complex has been managed by the Department of Health providing a range of health/ psychiatric care services, a centre for the NSW Ambulance Service. Towards the late twentieth century health services have been increasingly scaled back on the site, and many buildings have been left empty.

In the 1990s Rozelle Hospital vacated Kirkbride complex and in 1994 the Sydney College of the Arts, part of Sydney University, took over (Greenland, 2015, 17).

Currently the site accomodates a number of mental health functions. Rozelle Hospital primarily operating from the Broughton Hall Psychiatric Clinic buildings, together with support functions, it occupies over 100 buildings on the site. A number of buildings on the site are leased to other organisations including Sydney College of the Arts, The NSW Writers' Centre, a child care facility and the headquarters of the NSW Ambulance located at the corner of Balmain & Wharf Roads. As a result of changing trends in mental health services, the hospital has contracted to a current 275 bed psychiatric teaching hospital serving, in the main, the centre and inner west areas of Sydney, together with accomodation for a group of war veterans. (Tanner & Associates, 2002).

The Callan Park (Special Provisions) Act 2002 was allocated to the Minister for the Environment and will be administered by OEH. The site has multiple uses such as the Sydney College of Arts, NSW Health, NSW Ambulance Service, various non-government organisations and open space which has been managed by the Sydney Harbour Foreshore Authority. It has been the subject of a master-planning process. OEH is liaising with the Department of Planning and Environment on the transition of resources that support the current management arrangements of Callan Park (OEH Chief Executive Officer memo, 29/5/15).

4/6/2015 unanimous agreement by the Legislative Assembly which called on the State Government to implement (i.e. establish and appoint) a Trust for Callan Park was received with applause (Burge, 2015). The Assembly called on the Government to work with a Trust to finalise the Callan Park Master Plan, noting the principals of the current draft, and to ensure the Master Plan includes a sustainable long-term funding model to secure the protection of Callan Park in perpetuity. Soon after June 2015 management of Callan Park was transferred from Sydney Harbour FOreshores Authority to the Office of Environment & Heritage (OEH). OEH is preparing a discussion paper on the future management of Callan Park for public consultation for three months, before it decides on its final recommendations for the site (Greenland, 2015, 16-17).

Sydney College of the Arts, faced with falling enrolments, is planning to abandon Kirkbride complex and move the college to their main campus in Paddington by the end of 2017 (ibid, 2015, 17).
