Has there ever been a better time to be seduced by the optimism of the mid-century? 

 

We don’t think so, and that’s why we are opening up some of the best mid-century modern homes in Australia for a series of intimate live shows. 

 

Join comedian and professional design nerd, Tim Ross and acclaimed musician and composer Kit Warhurst for their brand new show, The Mid Century Project

 

These two besties can’t wait to open the doors to some extraordinary homes for an old-fashioned shindig full of hilarious stories, fantastic songs and maybe even a tiny bit of dancing.

 

For over a decade they have been taking architecturally significant buildings and turning them into temporary theatres and skilfully blending architecture, comedy and music. 

 

Tickets are strictly limited for this show, please book now to avoid missing out. 

 

Ross and Warhurst are comedic geniuses, highly talented singers, and great lyricists. Five Stars.”

Wilson Beach House by John Railton - 1968 

Envisaged in 1968 by Brisbane architect John Railton as a simple “box” for relaxed coastal getaways, Wilson Beach House on Queensland’s Sunshine Coast surpasses modest ambitions and instead offers an enduring example of elegant and expressive Australian design.


Wilson Beach House was created in a context where the relaxed weekend lifestyle of a beach house typically offered a clear distinction from the formal character of a permanent home.


The house’s sectional arrangement is divided into a double-height space for casual occupation towards the beach, while bedrooms are placed at the street side above working spaces such as the kitchen, bathroom and garage. By using part-height walls around the bedrooms, the entire upper ceiling plane is visible, sheltering occupants within a singular volume. John envisaged the walkway that connects the bedrooms as an internal verandah, where people could survey the communal areas below or look out towards the ocean.
