AAA At Home With the Architect


This month 'At Home With the Architect' takes a step back in time and celebrates Mid-Twentieth Century Modernism. Visit the Institute of Architects Sulman Award winning home built by architects Russell and Pamela Jack in 1957.

We've varied our usual program a little for this special event. Taking place on Saturday 24 August, we've specifically timed the visit to coincide with the Fifties Fair at Rose Seidler House, which takes place the following day.


Rusell and Pamela Jack's family home was inspired by the simplicity and craftsmanship of Japanese architecture and the philosophy of Organic Architecture, which integrated buildings sympathetically with its site and surroundings.

Our host for the afternoon will be interior designer and design lecturer Annalisa Capurro. She bought the house directly from Russell Jack four years ago and has kept the houses features intact. Her collection of original modernist decor complements the style of the residence.

This year Annalisa successfully lobbied to have the house listed on the NSW State Heritage Register. She is an expert on Mid-Twentieth Century design and is currently writing her masters thesis on the architecture of Russell Jack.

As this house is privately owned and not normally open to the public, you won't want to miss this out on an opportunity to explore this delightful home!
