Architects Home Tour with Aboriginal Art. 19th July. (Wimbledon)

SJ Home Tour 180

About This Home Tour: Hosted by SJ and Richard Holden we will have the opportunity to combine touring the whole of this stunning architect designed house with viewing a selection of Central Australian Aboriginal Art (Tingari Arts)

SJ and her architect husband, Richard, (Holden Harper) bought a standard 1950s developers box house on Parkside Avenue in the 1990’s and proceeded to transform it so that it has become an architectural icon, of much interest to anyone interested in residential design. The house has been completely turned around and re-orientated towards the south facing garden and remodelled to include double height spaces and references to the dramatic and hidden sources for lighting spaces in Baroque churches; influences from the work of John Soane are also evident in the entrance and  main living areas.

The interior and garden are full of fascinating works of art, in particular a wonderful collection of Aboriginal art from Central Australia, complemented by the striking use of colour, texture and materials throughout, including a number of different coloured ceilings.

Date: 7.30pm to 9.30pm  Wednesday 19th July

Members are welcome to invite guests.
