After sell out seasons around the globe, Tim Ross and Kit Warhurst are thrilled to return to the Kirriemuir House in Geelong to perform their hit show.
For the last six 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.

Kirriemuir House by Studio 101
This beautifully designed 1960’s Mid-Century Modernist home was based on the Lend Lease model called the ‘Pan Pacific’ – designed by the architect Nino Sydney. Rumour has it that the original owners made an interstate trip to the Carlingford Homes Fair held in Sydney back in 1962 that featured a series of architect designed, affordable housing prototypes. They were so impressed by the Pan Pacific, they arranged for it to be built back in the Geelong suburb of Hamlyn Heights..
The stand out design elements included the elongated gable roof form and the combination of external materials of face brickwork, stone feature walls and breezeway blocks. Internally, the spatial flow was enhanced by the floor to ceiling glazing, a sunken lounge with open fire, raking ceilings with expressed beams and a free flowing plan that revolved around the central kitchen.
With developers circling, the home desperately needed some TLC and was purchased in 2012 by its current owners – Peter and Belinda Woolard of studio101: Modernist Architects + Interiors. Over time, they have sensitively restored and transformed the home and given it a new lease of life. Fitted out with vintage furniture from the owners private collection and vintage furniture store, the home has been enhanced for today’s lifestyle and ready to serve for another fifty years.
