Program Info

Imagine a home designed and built especially for your family to grow, evolve and create memories in, over a lifetime. Join a lively conversation between architects Lindsay Clare, Kerry Clare (Clare Design) and Stuart Vokes (Owen and Vokes and Peters) about great Australian homes designed to last a lifetime. The 1987 Thrupp and Summers House (above) by Clare Design is featured in the new book The Forever House: Time Honoured Australian Homes, published by Thames and Hudson and edited by Cameron Bruhn and Katelin Butler. Presented as part of the Brisbane Open House program (11–12 October 2014), this event is generously hosted at Hassell’s Brisbane Studio. Copies of the book will be available to purchase at the event through Folio Books.
