Man About the Lovig House by Charles Duncan, Melbourne, Fri 23 Nov

Straight from a sell out season at the Sydney Opera House, Tim Ross and Kit Warhurst are thrilled to perform their hit show at Lovig House in Melbourne.

For the last five years they have taken temporary possession of architecturally significant buildings and skillfully blended comedy, storytelling, music and design in a mold 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 breathtaking Lovig House by Charles Duncan.

Lovig House by Charles Duncan (pictured recently at the house above)

The Lovig House was designed by Australian architect Charles Duncan, a proponent of organic Wrightian architecture, inspired by the work of Frank Lloyd Wright. The home’s floor to ceiling windows and sliding doors are a classic characteristic of Wrightian architecture, unifying the landscape with the interior. There is also timber flooring, ceilings and timber panelled walls with exposed brick columns throughout.

Duncan was one of a number of young Melbourne architects who designed Wrightian style homes in the 1960s, including David Godsell, David Chancellor and Rex Patrick, Geoffrey Woodfall and Kevin Knight.

In 1965, Duncan was awarded the Royal Australian Institute of Architect’s Single House award for the Williams House in Heidelberg.

The Croydon North home was built by Melbourne builders Fasham Johnson. It was not the last collaboration between Duncan and Fasham Johnson – Duncan designed two low energy display homes in Mills Parks and Taylors Lake in the 1980s that were constructed by Fasham Johnson.
