Description (Sold Out)
The architectural partnership of
Jansen & Treloar designed a series of extraordinary luxury modernist
houses in Adelaide’s southern foothills in the late 1960s and early
Bellevue Heights Modern opens the
doors to the Oxlade House, a flamboyant, cruciform-shaped home built on
the greenfield slopes high above Flinders University in 1970.
Casting off preconceptions and thinking from
first principles, the architects also drew inspiration from the low,
horizontal, organic structures of Frank Lloyd Wright, Walter Burley
Griffin and Bruce Goff.
Join an exclusive tour of this expansive
family house and discover its thoughtful binuclear planning and
exquisite detailing of brickwork, rich timber joinery, Woodtex ceilings,
exposed ornamented trusses hung with intricate lamps and spectacular
stone-and-glass cullet walls.
