MAN ABOUT THE HOUSE II
Following a sell out season in 2016, Tim Ross and Kit Warhurst return to Sydney to continue the launch of their brand new show.
For the last four years they have taken temporary possession of Architecturally significant buildings and skillfully blended storytelling, music and design in a mood breaking format that has seen them literally sell out houses across the globe.
Following rave reviews for the recent film series, Streets of Your Town, Tim and Kit welcome you to the unique The Dome House built in 1963 by architect Stan Symonds.

The Dome House by Stan Symonds Architect
Situated with picturesque views of Middle Harbour in Seaforth, The Dome House is representative of Stan Symonds architectural career. Semi-circular balconies cantilever externally and internally – from bedrooms above a double height living area. A spiral staircase, inside-outside circular pond and domed roof and ceiling are all iconic of the time. Completed in 1963, the house has undergone tasteful additions, including a new circular pavilion on the grounds, designed by Symonds as a smaller separate home and a more recent addition over the carport. Nestled in amongst the newer ‘McMansions’, this modernist home is a wonderful example of sculptural and geometrical architecture.
Stan Symonds (1933-) studied and lived in Sydney. With a career spanning more than 70 projects, he is best known for his work in residential houses and small commercial or multiple housing blocks.
