Sydney Museum has published the video of an interesting interview with Peter McIntyre about his 1955 ‘butterfly’ House in Kew, Melbourne

 

“The home of architects Peter and Dione McIntyre … symbolised the spirit of the new Melbourne house in the mid-1950s … Form and colour raised the spirits of the converted and deliberately jarred the unconverted into recognition that war was declared on conservatism” Robin Boyd, Australia’s Home.
