All things Architecture & Design


Oct 09, 2019

A small group of mid-century enthusiasts recently gathered in Killarney Heights at a Safari (c1962) by Lend Lease, architect Nino Sydney. There are currently only 18 examples of the Safari, and our host Martina’s family home is an excellent example in original condition. Stephen Batey then led a walking tour of the nearby Killarney Heights ‘Parade Of Homes’ 1963 display village site, to find original homes that still exist. This was followed by an open house at The Cedar House courtesy of Marcus from Modern House. We completed the days activities with a social evening in the lounge room of a lovely modernist home, thanks to our hosts Marc & Sue. A special thankyou to all our hosts and everyone who participated and attended, see you all again next year for some more MADness!
