Over the years At Home has opened the doors on a variety of fabulous architect designed residences, where tour participants get to experience the spaces and talk to the architects and clients about how the houses are designed and constructed.
Tour participants often ask questions about what materials and products have been used in the homes. All About Architecture thought it would be interesting to our readers to focus on some of the people, products and materials we discover at our @home tours.
This month 'Discovered @home' is featuring interior designer Jase Sullivan.
Jase collaborated with Clinton Cole of CplusC Architectural Workshop on Welcome to the Jungle House, which was featured in Septembers @home tour.
This is the second home he has worked on for CplusC, both of which have been shortlisted for Best Residential homes in the world at the World Architecture Festivals Awards for 2018 and 2019.
Jase began to pursue his passion for interiors several years ago, after a successful career as an international model. He may also be familiar to some of you already from his television show appearances. He was the winner of Channel 9’s renovation television show, homeMADE in 2009 and has more recently been a host, judge and mentor on 'The Block'.
Over the past several years he has worked with a variety of celebrity clients and collaborated on award winning houses with companies such as Arent & Pyke.
Welcome to the Jungle House features collectable vintage furnishings that have become something of a trademark for Jase's design practice.
Much of the furniture and lighting selected for Welcome to the Jungle House was imported from Italy and sourced from a vintage furniture supplier in Melbourne. Furniture was selected for practicality and comfort for a family with young children.
Signature lighting pieces, such as the below vintage eyeball floor lamp, add quirky individuality to the spaces and are lovely examples of the functionalist aesthetic of the 60s and 70s, made famous by lighting designers like the American Robert Sonneman and Italians Achille Castiglioni and Pier Giacomo Castiglioni.
The AAA enjoyed meeting Jase and would like to thank him for taking the time to join Clinton Cole of CplusC at our @home tour of Welcome to the Jungle House. We look forward to seeing more of his work.
