signing off whitehorse

Fiona Taylor is determined to be in Los Angeles in 2015. The 33-year-old gymnast from Box Hill’s Eastern Gymnastics Club is hoping to make the Australian team for the Special Olympics. Taylor has been unbeaten in Victorian special games gymnastics championships since 2001. ‘‘It’s down to lots of training. I’ve got the music of the routines I perform, so I can practise

at home,’’ she says. Taylor was named Whitehorse’s Sportsperson of the Year with a Disability on October 24 and said she was honoured to meet former swimming star Nicole Livingstone. Taylor is also the fourth-ranked Australian tennis player with an intellectual disability. ‘‘I’m grateful that I’ve done well. I’ve always listened to my mum’s advice which has been to try your best and stay focused.” \

hooping it up

It’s the vexed issue the Whitehorse Council had hoped would go away – a controversial proposal by the city’s newly elected ratepayers representative to force foreign-owned shops to display English language signs. But five months after the council handballed Peter Olney’s proposition to the Victorian Equal Opportunity and Human Rights Commission, claiming it did not have the authority to implement such laws, the commission has put the ball firmly back in the council’s court. In a letter to Olney, on October 31, the commission wrote: “The issue … appears to be a matter for council to decide based on whether it considers those with English as their primary language, who are seeking goods and services, are being disadvantaged due to business signs being in a language other than English.” It will now be up to councillors to decide if Olney’s proposal has any merit and if the city’s local laws need to be changed. In a municipality where, according to the 2011 census, close to 40 per cent of residents were born overseas, and more than 12 per cent speak Cantonese or Mandarin at home,

the issue has the potential to become a political hot potato that could divide the community. For now the council is playing for time, with Whitehorse chief executive officer Noelene Duff saying the council had heard about the commission’s response only last week and would need to formally consider the matter before commenting. Meanwhile Whitehorse mayor Andrew Munroe has made his position clear. “The face of Whitehorse has been evolving over recent years. The city is encouraging diversity, not trying to close it down,” he said. Olney, who was elected president of the Whitehorse Ratepayers and Residents Association on November 13, is forging a reputation as one of the Whitehorse council’s biggest tormentors. The 70-year-old Mitcham resident has written more than 50 letters to the council this year, questioning the legality of the local government system and criticising council’s apparent lack of financial transparency. But it is his signage proposal that could cause the most grief. He has argued traders should be given three years to change their signs and cover the cost of the replacements. His proposal was first covered in June by

this publication’s predecessor, Melbourne Weekly Eastern, and followed up by Channel Nine’s A Current Affair. “I’ve had a lot of people who said they support what I’m standing for,” Olney said. “Some people are upset by the amount of signage with language other than English. The fact that it is unintelligible to our wider community is of serious concern to many.”

He said if he does not get a satisfactory result from the council, he would single out a business in Box Hill and take them to VCAT, as a “test case”, to see if the tribunal would force the owners to change their signage. Unsurprisingly, the Asian Business Association of Whitehorse’s president, Andrew Yu, is against the proposal. He said traders in Box Hill welcomed everyone in the community but that it was up to each business to decide what signs to display. “If you walk through Box Hill you can see 90 per cent of the shops have signs in English and Chinese,” he said. “It’s not as bad as people are saying.” Melbourne University’s Dr David Nichols, an expert on the transformation of community centres, said Mr Olney’s proposal was illogical. He said the large foreign language shop signs in places such as Box Hill and Footscray helped migrants feel included in the community. “There are so many English shops that don’t say what they sell on the outside. McDonald’s doesn’t call itself the McDonald’s hamburger restaurant,” he said. “If you can’t understand the signs you can assume that you’re being excluded in some way, or you can go inside the shop and educate yourself.” \ KRISTIAN SILVA ksilva@mmpgroup.com.au

No. It’s the store’s decision. If people don’t like it, they can shop elsewhere.

noel kiely mitcham

No one should be forced. I do think shops should have signs in both languages.

illegal cigarette sales The Manningham Council has caught eight tobacco retailers selling cigarettes illegally to people under 18. The council ran a test purchasing operation in September, doling out more than $4500 in fines. Following a similar council sting in March, the owner of a Doncaster East tobacco shop, Xiao Ping Xu, was placed on a good behaviour bond and fined $750 by the Heidelberg Magistrates Court last month. Retailers can face fines up to $16,900 if the matter is referred to the Magistrates Court. \ Hockey on tHe Hustings Federal shadow treasurer Joe Hockey was in Mitcham last Tuesday as he hit the campaign trail alongside Deakin Liberal senate hopeful Michael Sukkar. While Hockey did not speak about local issues, he told a crowd of about 60 people at the Mitcham RSL that the opposition had a ‘‘four-step plan’’ if it came into government at the next election. Hockey said the opposition would slash spending, reduce taxes, improve productivity in the public service and support Australian businesses. \

The state government will pay back more than 3800 incorrect speeding fines to motorists snapped by a faulty red light camera at a Doncaster intersection. A report by the state’s road safety camera commissioner, Judge Gordon Lewis, found the traffic signals at the intersection of Doncaster and Williamsons roads had an incorrect yellow light phase between October 5, 2011, and August 7, 2012. The camera was first switched on in November 2010. The yellow phase – meant to last at least 4.5 seconds for north-bound vehicles – lasted only three seconds. “[Three seconds] is appropriate for any vehicles completing a right-hand turn but 1.5 seconds is too short for vehicles travelling straight,” Lewis said in his report. The state government will cancel fines issued to 3844 motorists penalised for driving through the intersection up to two seconds after the light turned red. Demerit points will also be reversed.

Minister for Police and Emergency Services Peter Ryan said the Department of Justice and VicRoads would work to refund fines and remove demerit points “in the coming weeks”. “The Coalition government believes it is fair that those individuals that were not afforded the appropriate warning because of the timing error should have their infringements withdrawn,” Ryan said. “The Department of Justice will identify each fine to be withdrawn and each person impacted will be contacted and any amounts to be refunded will happen automatically.” The Doncaster lights were one of eight intersections found to be faulty across the state. An investigation was triggered in October after the Magistrates Court dismissed a fine issued to Altona man Gordon Bishop, who received an incorrect penalty notice due to a faulty camera at Tullamarine Airport. \ KRISTIAN SILVA ksilva@mmpgroup.com.au

leAding the blind Doncaster resident Mandy Shuk-Man Lau (inset) hopes to help visually-impaired children around the world learn braille with a toy she has spent two years designing. Lau’s Reach and Match product was the only Australian finalist in the James Dyson Awards, an international design competition that recognises the work of engineering students and recent graduates. Lau’s invention aims to improve sensory learning skills of toddlers and pre-school students using removable symbols and tactile patterns.

‘‘I’m interested in how blind people understand their world by using their fingertips,’’ she said. Lau, 27, said despite the growing use of audio technology in classrooms, braille still played an important role in children’s learning. ‘‘If they just use audio it becomes passive, instead of being proactive and reading a book.’’ Lau said she would take the Reach and Match prototype to toy manufacturers overseas this summer and hopes to receive private and government funding to cover costs. \

George Pell is apparently concerned about protecting the institution or organisation ahead of the individuals and beliefs it professes to stand for, which is common in many organisations. But humans must come first. Perhaps Big George should read the words of Christ in the first four books of the New Testament for guidance. John doBinson towering problems So Manningham and Whitehorse are once again going to be the recipients of totally inappropriate development (Towering transformations, TWR, November 14). My only consolation

is that development in the suburbs should slow growth on the urban fringe. But beware developers, oversupply will catch you, just look at the empty apartments in the city. Whitehorse mayor Andrew Munroe must be an eternal optimist when he says development and subsequent population increases could be a “catalyst” for improved funding for public transport. Labor and Liberal governments have both shown their reluctance to invest in public transport despite overwhelming public support. lucille \ Box hill

Could it be that he really doesn’t know the extent of the abuse, or even its reporting? I remember watching his recent appearance on Q&A, seeing a man who clearly lives in a parallel universe. In response to a question, he used an example of children making their first communion. He said, “I remember we were preparing these young boys …”, and the audience broke into titters. Pell looked confused, and tried again: “We were preparing these boys …”, and the audience sniggered again. The cardinal, looking bewildered and perhaps even a little cross, pushed on, but the double entendre was clearly lost on him. What Catholic priest, who lived in the real word, could use a line like that and not hear its uncomfortable double meaning? Perhaps only a man who believes the horrors perpetrated by some ordained officers of his church could be made to appear any more awful than they are. \

Born in Britain, he sees himself as a Melburnian but has been spending most of his time in Sydney lately, where the hugely successful MasterChef juggernaut is filmed. His multiple TV shows, two restaurants, 2½ cookbooks, product ambassadorships and family keep him busy to a nearly comical degree, but to this day he still makes time to indulge in one of his great passions – fast motorcycles.

I

’ve been riding bikes since I could get a licence. I think in England that was 17. I used to work on the weekends and I was just saving for a bike, because I wanted to be cool, you know? I was going to impress the girls. Yeah, I never did. I always used to think that when I got a bigger bike, that’d impress the girls, but it was never big enough. Because by the time I did get a big bike, they wanted to be chauffeured around in comfort. “I saved my pennies – in fact, that’s how I got into hospitality and catering. I got a part-time job in a local hotel. We used to work Friday night, Saturday and Sunday and I saved up and bought a CG125, which was a Honda single [cylinder], pushrod bike. We’re talking a long time ago. “It was completely gutless, but it felt like magic at the time. I took my test as quick as I could, got myself trained and passed the test, and then I bought a GS250 Suzuki. After the 125, that felt like a proper-sized motorcycle. I realised about a year after that that it just didn’t have the guts. It would do about 70mph (120km/h) on the motorway and just run out of gas. So I bought what they used to call a ‘flying breezeblock’ back then, which was a Honda CX500. It was a beautiful bike, a poor man’s BMW, and again, that jump from 125 to 250 to 500, that just felt like a million bucks. “I would’ve got knocked off about five times in London – all low speed, cars pulling out in front of you as we were moving in between the traffic. I remember a doctor knocked me off my motorcycle once. I remember lying in front of the No. 8 bus from Willesden wondering why nobody was going to come and help me. “We’d buy all our spare parts from the wreckers and it was always trouble, because I had no money, and it was funny that there were always no left-side parts, because that’s the side that everybody fell off and slid on. So you’d go in looking for a muffler and they’d say, sorry, we’ve got the other side but we haven’t got that side. “To be honest, it was practical and it was the only way that I could afford to get around – and get around fast. I couldn’t really afford a car, being a chef back then, and even when I bought a car it was just impossible to get around London. So it was always a motorbike. “I bought a VF500F when I came to Australia. I bought it in Healesville. The guy told me it was a train ride and a taxi ride from the city – it was Badger’s Creek! So I got off at Lilydale and the taxi driver said ‘it’s going to cost you about 50 bucks to get to Badger’s Creek’. I was like ‘What? This bike better be good!’ – and it was. “I used to ride from Box Hill up into the Dandenongs every day – I worked at a place called Bernaducci’s – I used to love that little line up the Sherbrooke Road.

10 The weekly review \ november 21, 2012

There’s a little devil’s elbow, can’t remember what it’s called. I used to go up fast and down fast every day – and then I got to know the roads. I mean, in Victoria, obviously, there’s the Great Ocean Road, but coming back through Dean’s Marsh is just a cracker. I love that one and I love the Black Spur, but that road up to Lake Mountain is probably my favourite road in Australia, just absolutely beautiful. “Now I live in Sydney and I’ve been trying to find their equivalent. But you know, Victorian roads are bloody good – and that Lake Mountain road is well looked after because it’s a snow road. Halfway down there’s a beautiful vista right across the high country. “You can get out from work, go out for a ride, it’s what, an hour and a half, you can give it a good old squirt going up there and on the way back down you can stop and just listen to the birds and [inhales] take in a bit

“I’m not a psycho. I’m not a super-fast rider . . . I must be doing something right in terms of keeping myself alive.” of the countryside, then fang it all the way back down. “I bought a Honda VTR1000 from Peter Stevens. I loved the idea of having a poor man’s Ducati. I couldn’t afford a Ducati, thought it was a bit extravagant. I loved that bike – even now, it’s one of my favourite bikes. Most people would bag that and say it’s an old man’s bike, but I just think it was so easy to ride. I did the California Superbike School on that, up to level two. It was my plaything, basically. I sold that in 2002 and had a hiatus for about six years – just because we had a little girl and I never had time to ride it. “I got back into it after that and bought a Triumph Thruxton – again, avoiding the superbikes because I thought I was going to kill myself. Obviously you can kill yourself on anything, and then, ridiculously, I find myself on a track day on a Triumph Thruxton, thinking ‘why on Earth did I buy a Triumph Thruxton? Why didn’t I buy the 675 [supersport bike]? What’s going on?’ But I love it, there’s no frills about it, it’s got a lovely little feel. It’s got Staintune [exhausts] on it and they pop and backfire when I throttle off, and I just love the style and the fact that there’s nothing flashy about it. I commute

on it, pop up the coast for a coffee and I really feel like I’m part of that Triumph thing, that Triumph lifestyle. “My dad was always into Triumphs. He’s nearly 70. He came off and broke his shoulder and arm about four years ago. It was only the third time he’d been knocked off. He said ‘I’m getting too old. I can’t recover’ and that’s a shame because I wanted to do something together, go for a big ride together. That probably won’t happen now. “But my sister rides and her husband rides in the UK, so we’ve got to do something together at some point. When they came over to Australia, lucky enough I’ve got two bikes now. So Scottie and myself, he’s her partner, he took the Thruxton. I’ve also got a BMW K1300R, a naked bike, which is now my favourite. We went up the coast, up to Terrigal and back around the long way via Singleton and down the Putty Road. We swapped bikes every so often and it’s beautiful, it’s like getting out of a jet fighter and into a Spitfire. One’s instantaneous, fast, smooth, torque on tap and the other one takes a bit of a wind-up to get going, but it’s really supple and easy to ride – and you know it has limits to its capabilities but it’s a beautiful ride. “I went back to the Superbike School about two years ago and did level one as a refresher. Don’t quote me on the stats, but I think that BMW will do 240-250 down the straight, it’s just awesome. Then putting a question mark over whether you should go out on that last session of the day. Sometimes I just think I’m tired, I’ve been lucky all day, I’ve had a great day, I love it, but it’s time to have a cup of tea and go home. It’s a nice little decompression. “I don’t tell Channel Ten when I’m going on ride days. Last year we had a MasterChef party with all the Channel Ten celebrities, press, the whole thing. It was a George, Matt and Gary thing where we get up, give ’em the intro, tell ’em what’s happening this season, it’s a big event, cocktail party, Champagne’s flying. I had a track day booked that I’d never told them about. They told me the launch party was on say, April 15, and I thought, shit! That’s my ride day! I ain’t cancelling the ride day. “My wife does my diary and I told her, whatever you do, don’t tell them – just say I’ve got another commitment. They booked in to do rehearsals and, unfortunately, because I had ‘another commitment’ I couldn’t do them. I figured out it would take me 45 minutes to get back from Eastern Creek back to the house, grab my suit and get to the studio for make-up. I still had helmet hair when I did the opening speech. I was wired, absolutely wired. I was so wired that when I did the opening speech, the guys were asking ‘what’s the matter with you?’. I had to tell them ‘I’ve just had the BEST day. Gorgeous, 21 degrees, chewed a bit of tyre up on the Thruxton, tweeted some photos’. “I’ll leave that for track days, make sure I get it out of my system and then trundle home at 80Ks an hour on the M2 and go home. Then it doesn’t tempt me to pop a mono down Willoughby Road, and I like that. It’s a sensible approach to having fun. “A lot of chefs ride bikes. It’s more about working


unsociable hours, needing a good commuter and not having a lot of money to spend when you’re starting off in your career. So you end up finding people like Jacques Reymond, who’s been riding Ducatis for years, or Matt Moran, who also rides a Ducati, or you see some chef turn up on some crazy chopper incarnation with ‘EAT’ as his number plate – that’s Michael Moore. Or Colin Fassnidge, who rides an R1. It’s a nice little club actually. “It’s funny how bikes galvanise people. I mean, when I talk to [fellow MasterChef judges] Matt and George about things I’m interested in, like bikes, you just see them glaze over. I mean, they’re talking about tennis and golf, which I think is about the most monotonous game on the planet. I mean, I can handle nine holes with good friends and a golf pro to get me through it, but to go out and do that on a Sunday morning? You’ve got to be joking! I want to go for a ride! To those guys, they take the mickey a bit – it makes no sense to go out and risk your life on two wheels, whereas I don’t think they get any of the freedom or the thrill that it gives you riding a two-wheeled machine.

i

love a bit of alone time. Maybe it’s like a bit of a guy thing, but I don’t mind going out with a bunch of guys and not having a conversation about anything that important. Being in silence in your own crash helmet, enjoying the countryside, enjoying the thrill of the power and the open road. And when you get a beautiful road, there’s just something really – cleansing is the wrong word – something liberating about that. You approach a little bit of a bend in the road and you can see it’s going to be a nice sweeper or a series of sweepers and you can just give it a little bit of gas, and there’s this lovely sort of liberation for me of just letting that go. “Most of my life is surrounded nowadays by staff at my restaurants – I’ve got 75, 80 people working for me between the two restaurants. Limited amount of time, maximum amount of information. Sometimes it’s nice to go, you know what? I’m going to book that morning off and go out on my bike. It’s good alone time. There’s a few passions in my life – food, family, motorbikes. “I’m not a psycho. I’m not a super-fast rider. I’ve been a rider for a long time, so I must be doing something right in terms of keeping myself alive. I’m cautious and defensive in the city. In London, you had a choice, you’re either going to be a psycho, like the couriers – I remember riding along Park Lane one day and two couriers splitting either side of me, one bolting that way, the other bolting that way and you could hear them screaming as they went in different directions, they just basically raced each other down Park Lane – I could never do that. The day I got carried away I’d find myself sliding along on my arse on the tarmac. I had enough little reminders in London to keep myself safe. “On the open road I enjoy more to choose where I give it a bit of gas and where I don’t. Long straight road, think twice about feeding in the throttle. That’s preservation of licence more than anything else. Whereas, up the hill on a bit of twisty road, you can go for it, and chances are you’re going to have a great time if you ride smoothly. You’ll get to the end and have a great day. So I don’t know how I’d describe myself – cautious with the odd mad moment, how about that? It’s kept me alive so far. “I never look down on anybody who rides slowly. But anyone who asks, I’m happy to share what I know. Often I’ll just say ‘get yourself down to the Superbike School, or HART, or any one of them and just do the training’. “It sounds a bit Zen, but I try to live the moment. I pop my little tinted visor down and then nobody knows who I am. It’s quite nice.” \ lblain@theweeklyreview.com.au

BeauTy ScriBe \ DHAV NAIDU GETS UNDER YOUR SKIN

Y

ou cannot escape the smell of sulphur during a visit to Rotorua in New Zealand. My warm sulphurous-mud bath was by choice, though. The novelty piqued my curiosity. Maybe the taxman will accept it as beauty research. As I was rubbing the volcanic mud on my legs and upper body, I thought of facial masks. Don’t ask me why. Most facial masks are deep-cleansing and moisturising. They help increase blood circulation, tighten pores and impart a certain glow after use. The latter is one of the most important aspects of any masks – they slough off dead skin to reveal a brighter, younger skin. This means tighter, rejuvenated skin with a hint of glow. Regular cleansing will only remove surface dirt but using a mask once a week will draw out impurities from beneath the top layers of the skin. A mask also helps unclog pores so that your moisturisers and serums work more effectively. Besides facial masks being soothing or energising, the added benefit is the time spent going through the routine. The motion of applying, waiting and cleansing can be an effective stress reliever. Scrubs and masks are complementary, not substitutes. Using them together each week will help keep your skin in optimum condition. \ dnaidu@theweeklyreview.com.au

Antipodes Natural Aura Manuka Honey Mask (75ml, $51) – drawing from the traditional remedies of New Zealand’s Maori people, this rich, naturally scented mask powerfully draws moisture to the skin’s surface to intensely hydrate it. Love the scent of natural vanilla and mandarin, which lingers after using the mask.

When Ms Lauder first started her business, she wanted to give women choice and service. With the launch of Estée Lauder Beautiful Skin Studio, the company is continuing to provide that extra bit of service. There is ideal lighting and professional expertise at the studio to guide you in choosing the perfect foundation through to lipglosses. Who knows, if you are nice you could also bag some healthy samples. Make your way to Myer Bourke Street to find out more.

Ahava Time to Clear Purifying Mud Mask (125ml, $40) – purifies and renews the skin, making it look refreshed and ready for new challenges.

Marni, which is headed by fashion-set darling Consuelo Castiglioni, is finally launching a fragrance. The campaign, featuring Raquel Zimmermann photographed by Nick Knight, is set to launch in the northern hemisphere in February next year. The fragrance is rumoured to be a landmark composition that’s quite individual and not easily categorised.

Sisley Black Rose Mask (60ml, $160) – a miracle in a tube. It instantly refreshes, smoothes, plumps and energises the face. It can be worn under make-up or leave it on while you sleep and wake up to a treat.

ach week, as Kim Darcy arrives home to find her freshly delivered box of organic food waiting for her, she is supporting a wind farm in China. The fruit, vegetables, dairy goods and dry foods she’s chosen for the week are all sourced as locally as possible; Made In China would never been seen on a CERES product. But, by choosing to get her organic groceries delivered through a new carbon-neutral scheme offered by CERES Fair Food, Darcy is helping to pay off a year’s worth of carbon-offset credits bought by the group. “We decided to support renewable energy so we have invested in a wind farm in China,” explains CERES marketing manager, Eleonore Bridier, of the ground-breaking scheme. The carbon-neutral option, launched in September, was a natural progression for the Brunswick-based Centre for Education and Research in Environmental Strategies, which started out as a project to reclaim a wasteland, grew into a sustainable urban farm, and launched CERES Fair Food delivering organic produce in 2010. Initially food was distributed through a network of food hosts, who volunteered to receive several boxes that were then collected by nearby customers. Host pick-ups are dotted across Melbourne, reaching out to Werribee, Eltham, Box Hill North, Surrey Hills and Cheltenham. But as the idea spread “there was a demand for a home-delivery service,” says Bridier. “Food ethics are starting to become an issue for some who also want convenience.” CERES already had a policy of trying to keep the food miles of its goods as low as possible, growing many of the vegetables itself and then gradually casting its net wider as it sourced products unavailable locally. Adding extra delivery distance was not part of the plan, hence the need to offset the carbon cost. “We bought the offsets through a broker, and we’ll have to buy more next year,” Bridier says. To pay for the carbon credits, a fee of $6.75 is charged

Going neutral

preparinG for delivery

From hotels to couriers, printers to accountants, a growing number of businesses are reducing their impact by becoming carbon neutral. This is achieved by reducing the business’s carbon footprint as much as possible – cutting energy use, creating less waste and recycling as much as possible – then buying carbon credits to cover the remainder. The Alto Hotel in Bourke Street believes it is the first city hotel in Australia to become carbon neutral. The hotel has reduced its carbon footprint to an average of 11.8 kilograms of carbon per one-night stay, less than half the target set for hotels by Sustainable Tourism. A long list of actions taken to achieve this goal includes: l l l l

per delivery. The scheme has been an instant hit, with more than 100 new customers signing up in the first few weeks. CERES now receives orders for about 700 food boxes a week. “I do love coming home to my goodies,” Darcy says. “I’ve been ordering through CERES for about six months, but three weeks ago I moved to Southbank and an apartment with concierge service, so I switched to home delivery; it’s easier than collecting from a food host.” Working in hospitality – her family runs a series of city bars and restaurants – Darcy is quite particular about her food, its source, quality and ethical history. Buying “I like to know it hasn’t been artificially online is ripened or gassed or anything. You can also all about order dairy goods and eggs and household convenience stuff, and you know the products available are the ethical, moral and non-toxic version of the same products available in mainstream supermarkets.” As part of its “fair” approach, CERES offers a 50:50 split with its suppliers and employs staff through AMES (Adult Multicultural Education Services) and others who are disadvantaged in the job market. “Mathees, Somaya and Subesh have all completed a certificate III in transport and logistics, and Mathees in now a leading hand,” Bridier says. Buying organic is no longer restricted to the hard-core green fringe; according to the Australian Organic Market Report 2012, more than a million Australians regularly buy organic products, with 65 per cent of adults claiming to have purchased an organic product in the past year. This is now married to technology. “Buying online is natural for customers who want convenience,” Bridier says. “This service gives it an extra dimension.” \ jcanaway@theweeklyreview.com.au

elbourne design firms, with nine of the 16 awards, were the big winners at the Interior Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) 2012 recently at the Seymour Centre in Sydney. Major wins included Hecker Guthrie, which won the prestigious IDEA Gold Medal, and Billard Leece Partnership and Bates Smart for their work on the Royal Children’s Hospital. In the past decade, Hecker Guthrie has built an enviable reputation for its pared-back, Scandinavian-inspired interiors. The multidisciplinary studio based in Richmond is responsible for the iconic interiors of Ivy, Comme, Longrain, Bistro Guillaume, Outpost, Sensory Lab, David’s, The Millswyn and Claremont Tonic. In presenting the award, the jury applauded its ongoing consideration for the ways in which a project is put together. Hecker Guthrie was also awarded for its residential decoration on Park Street Residence in Melbourne, and was highly commended for the The Old Library restaurant in Sydney. Not surprisingly, The Royal Children’s Hospital was awarded the overall winner and the best public space awards. The hospital, which has already received multiple accolades around the world, is a state-of-the-art, world-class facility that shows the importance and value of nature in the healing process. Using large-scale artworks, a two-storey aquarium and a mini-zoo of meerkats, the hospital interiors aim to provide distractions through positive experiences and joyful environments. Celebrating their 10th year, the IDEA Awards, organised by Inside magazine, aim to honour and promote the latest innovative work in interior and product design. With more than 400 entries this year, the awards are proving to be one of the most important events in the design industry. \ fcarter@theweeklyreview.com.au

Residential decoRation \ Hecker Guthrie – Park Street Residence (Melbourne) When a young family hired Hecker Guthrie to design loose furniture for their inner-city townhouse, they could never have imagined how it would unfold. Renovating the kitchen, bathroom and joinery, Hecker Guthrie created spaces that are fresh, white and open, establishing a generosity of scale and texture that was previously lacking. Retail winneR \ March Studio – Baker D. Chirico (Melbourne) North Melbourne-based practice March Studio designed a Carlton bakery that takes its cues from the art of baking. Investigating baking methods from artisan baker Daniel Chirico, March crafted an interior with a simple purpose – to cool the bread fresh out of the oven, and to display it ready to be portioned and sold. While the design is practical, it’s also alluring. The whole shop has been imagined as on oversized bread basket, crafted from blond plywood that merges walls and ceilings in an undulating, sweeping, curve.

(eddie morton)

’ve never been one to conform. While my pigtailed playmates danced with each other imagining they were ballerinas, I dealt with the ever-changing cryptic rules of the playground by dreaming of being a lady pirate. A cardboard tube retrieved from a bolt of fabric was my cutlass; clinging to the monkey bars with one arm, I’d lunge forward and hack through imaginary ropes and villains with the other. I was in love with Captain Flint, the fictional pirate in Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island, and longed to be shipwrecked and hunting for buried treasure. Even now, when I’m somewhere on a spit of land near an old port or riverbank, I sniff around for a barrel or wooden chest crammed with a stash of doubloons. From the moment I step aboard a ship I’m having an adventure. There’s no back and front, only the stern, the bow, portside and starboard. A ship is a living thing; it breathes, sweats and responds to weather with a unique soundscape. The moans of heavy ropes pulling against the tide or chains rattling along the anchor are the stuff of long absences and faraway lands. Ships fuel our imagination and can effect the most transformative internal journey without even leaving the shore. The Polly Woodside is about as spellbinding a ship as you could ever imagine. This Belfast-built, three-masted, iron-hulled barque was launched in 1885 and given the owner’s (William Woodside) wife’s nickname, “Polly”. In 17 voyages between 1885 and 1903, the Polly Woodside made several brutal passages around Cape Horn with an operating crew, including master and mate, generally numbering fewer than 20.


Shipbuilding, containers and a home for those who roam

Got an Ironic Iconic idea? Email me

This was a testament to the crew’s skill, and also to the ship’s beautiful lines and speed. In good conditions, and despite her size, she was capable of travelling at up to 14 knots (about 26 kilometres) an hour. Like all great performers, she’s had a lifetime of reinvention. In1904 she was sold to a New Zealand firm and renamed Rona, operating mainly between Australia and New Zealand. Competition from steamships forced the removal of her mast and yards and she was towed to Melbourne to be used as a coal lighter. In 1943, Rona was temporarily requisitioned by the Royal Australian Navy, towed to New Guinea waters and used as a refuelling barge for naval ships. After World War II she was towed back to Melbourne and for the next 20 years was again used for supplying coal to other ships. Most importantly, through all these years she safely delivered her crew back to shore every trip. Finally, in 1968, then owner Howard Smith Industries sold it to the National Trust of Australia (Victoria) for one cent, for restoration under her original name. After meticulous research and the affection and dedication of several volunteers, the Polly Woodside was restored between1972-78 – not to sail again, but to be a museum ship on which everyone could discover the technical aspects of a 19th-century sailing ship and the experience of life aboard for the crew. Get the barnacles off your bottom, jump aboard this beauty and, shiver me timbers, by the time you jump off you may be sunburnt and bearded. \ boomboom@rachelberger.com Follow Rachel on Twitter @boom_berger

Duke & Orr’s Dock

The proximity of Duke & Orr’s Dock to the CBD is a reminder of the extensive shipbuilding and repair industry that once stretched for five kilometres along the south bank of the Yarra. Built in 1875, it’s incredible that the dock, gates, machinery and pump house are still basically intact. The dock is a grease monkey’s heaven – there’s a steam plant that includes the oldest known surviving installation of Victorian-built, under-fired tubular boilers in the metropolitan area and the only existing pair of Victorian-built tandem compound, vertical steam-pumping engines. Since 1978 it’s also the permanent home of the Polly Woodside. \

Port of Melbourne

The Mission to Seafarers,

717 Flinders Street, Melbourne Seafarers work for long periods away from their homes and families, often in isolated and dangerous conditions. The Mission to Seafarers Victoria is part of a worldwide organisation started by the Reverend Dr John Ashley in 1835. He was so moved by the harrowing lives of seafarers after a visit to the island of Steep Holm in the Bristol Channel that for the next 15 years, until his health declined, he dedicated his life to their welfare. The Victorian Seaman’s Mission was founded in 1857 and has been providing a safe place for rest and relaxation, friendship and counsel in times of need ever since. \

The Port of Melbourne is Australia’s largest and busiest container port and one of the nation’s largest general cargo ports. But it wasn’t always so – an underwater bar at the entrance of the Yarra meant vessels drawing more than about three metres couldn’t enter and were forced to drop anchor in Hobson’s Bay, or at the Port Melbourne Pier. Passengers and freight then had to be shipped up the river in smaller vessels, which charged a fortune for the trip to the city. Over the years, channels have been widened and deepened and embankments raised to lessen the likelihood of floods. The history of the Port of Melbourne’s development is a testament to the development of the city itself. \

Motoring \ ron easdown eXaMInes THe BeneFITs oF a reGULar servIce The drive belt is the big one, if it breaks you can basically wave your engine goodbye. Many drive belts are rubber and so go off with time as well as use. It’s something to be aware of if you’ve bought a second-hand car that has 80,000 kilometres or more on the clock. It’s a good idea to get big jobs like this done by an authorised dealer simply because they’ve done plenty before, they’re tapped into the manufacturer’s service bulletins, and they have any special tools that may be required. But lots of outlets can handle the minor servicing and, as long as they do it according to the service book, your car’s warranty will remain intact. This explains the huge growth in after-market service outlets despite the best efforts of car makers and dealers to keep you within their network. The interesting thing is that plenty of places within a large franchise can provide the same level of service as the authorised dealers. The franchise often has diagnostic equipment and special tools purchased second-hand from authorised dealers disposing of them, and they share it between their franchisees. It’s just a matter of letting them know you’re coming. \ editorial@theweeklyreview.com.au Things you didn’T know abouT moToring \ Formula one cars brake from 100km/h to zero in one third the distance of a normal car. The G-forces can distort the driver’s eyeballs.

Servicing is all about the stuff you don’t see

(supplied)

W

hen was the last time you had the car serviced? Unless it’s reasonably new your most likely answer to that, according to research done in the United States, is probably too long. The US magazine Consumer Reports surveyed 1700 people and 40 per cent of them said they were postponing maintenance or repairs on their primary vehicle, mostly because of ‘‘economic circumstances’’. Is this false economy? Certainly the motor industry would have you think so. Its line is that skimping on servicing means that small problems will become big ones. Yet it is patently clear that few car owners believe it. Only 9 per cent of those polled in the survey thought delaying servicing would present a safety risk and just 17 per cent said they would be afraid to take a long trip because of concerns over reliability or safety. We’ve probably all been lulled into a feeling of security towards our cars because modern ones are so much more reliable than they were even 10 years ago. It’s not hard to think a dealer is ripping you off when the car looks the same, feels the same and drives the same after a service costing hundreds of dollars. But servicing is all about the stuff you don’t see, such as fouled oil, clogged filters, worn brakes, old hoses and drive belts that have passed their use-by. If not changed regularly all these things have the potential to leave you stranded by the side of the road and there’s never a convenient time to break down.

iris teLLs a great story

\ 11-13 McCALLUM ROAD, DONCASTER, 3108

“L

et’s call her Iris,” said Marilyn to her husband, Max, on the morning they bought this house. She was in the thick of an Iris Murdoch novel and he was quickly in with a retort. “What a ridiculous name for a house,” he said. By the evening, Max had had a rethink: “Let’s drive round to see Iris.” And that is how this house got its name, set in stone, so to speak, in a plaque created by Melbourne sculptor Graeme Foote. The circular name plaque now decorates the gable of 11-13 McCallum Road, a house built in 2003 and purchased by the vendors a couple of years later. In line with houses built about that time, Iris has all the mod-cons that come with modern residential buildings, such as ducted heating and refrigerated cooling, security system and lights controlled by a computerised set-up. However, Iris is not your typical “thoroughly modern Millie”. She is a blast from the past with beautifully tender overtones. Unlike houses built in her time, Iris is embellished with details from earlier days when high ceilings, decorative cornices, deep skirting boards, tessellated tiles (in the bathrooms) and papered dado walls were de rigueur. The tiled front porch leads to a wide hallway with rich, red-brown, 18cm-wide Sydney ironbark floorboards that announce a warm welcome the moment you step in. They are also an indication of fine craftsmanship, for you will not hear a creak or whimper with your footfall. The long hallway, with four bedrooms to its left and a study, laundry and rumpus room to its right, leads all the way to the back of the house. The main bedroom (with en suite and walk-in dressing area) has arched windows with leadlight transoms matching the leadlight on the front door and overlooks Ruffey Lake Park. To take advantage of this pastoral vista, the primary living areas of this house – kitchen, lounge, dining and family room – are upstairs. In tune with the ambience of this house, the kitchen

has been designed in French provincial style with marble benchtops, tiled splashbacks and limewashed timber cabinets. Double ceramic sinks, a 1200mm Ilve oven and walk-in pantry combine to give this kitchen not just a pretty face but a formidable working heart. An island bench with jarrah worktop delineates the kitchen from the open-plan lounge and dining area. A large family room off the main living area adds a formal room to the open-plan configuration. The stand-out feature upstairs must surely be the spacious tiled terrace that looks out to the parklands and walking tracks of Ruffey Lake Park. The terrace, with pressed-metal ceiling and Edwardian-style floor tiles, is well protected from the elements and can be used year-round. Equipped with a Heatlie barbecue that is connected to gas mains, this terrace serves as a second kitchen and entertainment space, the vendor says. It is a lovely place for gatherings, meetings and dinner parties. “The chandeliers over the island bench and above the central staircase were originally in a restaurant at Daimaru, Melbourne Central,” the vendor writes in her detailed notes on the making of Iris. The house is more than a sum of its parts, she says. It is a constant reminder of how attuned the builder was “to the spirit of place that is here”. “Country-serene McCallum Road ... never fails to inspire gratitude and lift the spirits.” This property, on about 526 square metres of land, has views that will never be built out because there are no houses on the other side of the road, only parkland. The location is close to the City of Manningham amenities, including sports facilities, good schools, shops (Westfield, The Pines), Petty’s Orchard and the Yarra River in Warrandyte. The entrance to the Eastern Freeway is a short distance away and the bus stop for route 305 into the city is around the corner on George Street. \ SIEW-CHING GOH property@theweeklyreview.com.au

we lov e it

templestowe There are no lawns to mow at this 1160 square metre property. The outdoor areas are paved, garden beds are “mulched” with white pebbles and the only patch of green is a synthetic lawn in the backyard. This easy-care theme continues indoors with tiled floors in all the living areas (lounge, dining, family/meals, rumpus room). Carpets are restricted to the four bedrooms upstairs. The main bedroom has “his-and-hers” basins as well as “his-and-hers” showerheads. There is only one walk-in wardrobe though. Along with its easy-care theme, this house has a striking colour scheme of black and white as seen in its exterior profile and internal colours of dark stone atop white cabinetry in the kitchen and bathrooms. Highlight walls painted an orangey red provide accents in many rooms. The study, to the right of the entry, provides internal access to the garage; most other downstairs rooms connect to the garden. The open-plan lounge and dining area opens to the resort-style backyard, dominated by a swimming pool and spa, while the family room opens to a paved outdoors area at the side. A U-shaped kitchen, with a 900mm De’Longhi hob, separates these two areas. The huge rumpus room, with a stylish raked ceiling, also leads out to the pool and backyard. Other features include a timber-lined sauna, wet bar, roof-ducted central heating and open fireplace in the lounge. \ SIEW-CHING GOH

This solid four-bedroom family house was built in the 1980s and, nearly 30 years later, it is in immaculate condition. On a classic Templestowe corner block of nearly 785 square metres, it is well located for schools (walking distance to Serpell Primary), shops on King Street and shopping centres in Doncaster, and a local bus that stops on the corner. The neat topiary skills on display in the manicured front garden are indicative of the attention the property has received in its lifetime. The ground floor is designed for living and entertaining. It has a formal sitting and dining room, a large living room and an open-plan kitchen and meals area. Cream carpet,

chandeliers and drapes define the formal areas while floor tiles and downlights make for practical living in the open-plan area. Upstairs, four bedrooms and a main bathroom congregate around a central staircase. The north-facing main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe, en suite and small sitting area with its own window – perfect for reading a book in this parent’s retreat. The extensive garden wraps around the house on three sides. With three sheds, a water tank, two built-in barbecues and manicured lawn and garden beds, it is beautifully established. There is plenty of room for entertaining and running around. Even a cricket pitch would fit here. \ EMMA HOUGHTON

Brimming with conveniences and a north-facing courtyard, the low-maintenance living of this new subdivision will appeal to families and downsizers. The downstairs main bedroom at the front of the house gets plenty of northern light. It has built-in wardrobes and an en suite. All the bathrooms and the kitchen are well appointed with CaesarStone benches. The kitchen also has Bosch stainless-steel appliances. The open-plan kitchen, living and meals area is light and bright with polished Tasmanian oak floors and white interiors. Sliding doors lead to the private front courtyard with neat lawn. A separate laundry has its own small rear courtyard with washing line. Three carpeted bedrooms upstairs share a stylish main bathroom. They are all equipped with split-system heating and cooling units and two of them have spacious built-in wardrobes. Extras include a remote-controlled double garage with internal entry, alarm system, Foxtel cabling and ducted heating throughout. \ eMMA HoUGHtoN

The incline and size of this 734-square metre block has allowed a generous extension to the rear of this already spacious family house. Stone paving flanked on either side by a tiered rose garden draws you towards the entrance of this weatherboard house. The right side of the house is dedicated to the bedrooms and bathrooms, while on the left are the living and dining rooms and the open-plan family, meals and kitchen area. The original dwelling was built during the 1950s, and a few features such as ceiling roses and detailed cornices remain. Polished floorboards meet terracotta-like tiles in the kitchen. Eight angled windows in the meals area allow for almost 180-degree views eastwards, taking in the tree canopy at Yarran Dheran Reserve. The family room opens to a balcony, which overlooks the pool and a big backyard. The house was recently extended downstairs by way of a rumpus room, another bedroom, a bathroom, laundry and covered deck outside. \ lexi cottee

Technically speaking this 1990s house is part of a subdivision but, once inside, its spacious, open-plan design suggests otherwise. A big bay window in the lounge room is a natural focal point. This carpeted room is open plan to the dining room and, at the rear, the kitchen. A soft palette of creamy cupboards with timber furnishings creates warmth in the kitchen, which looks out onto a big lemon tree and back courtyard. Sliding doors in the dining room lead to a covered entertainment area bordered by a wall of variegated ivy. From here, wide timber steps lead down and around to the paved courtyard. The two bedrooms are on the right-hand side of the house. The main bedroom has a large walk-in wardrobe and a big bay window that looks out to an evergreen front garden. Both bedrooms share a large bathroom with a bath and separate shower. At the back of the house there’s another toilet next to the laundry, which also has an external door. \ Lexi COTTee

Rosstrevor Crescent has almost unrivalled cachet in Mitcham and is close to schools and shops. This 1950s-built weatherboard house is neat behind its velvet-like lawn, box hedges and character-adding fretwork on the front verandah. The rectangular-shaped house has a lot more space than its façade reveals. There are three bedrooms, two of which are on the left side and are separated by a bathroom that is all-white except for a timber vanity. The original hardwood floors feature throughout and combine with an all-timber outfit in the kitchen for a cosy feel. The L-shaped kitchen is part of a long rectangular room, which becomes the dining room and then family room as you make your way down the house. A brushed blue feature wall at the far end adds another dimension to the open-plan space. Windows line this elongated room and look out onto the backyard and a big, undercover deck area. There’s plenty of scope to develop this unusually and deceptively big block. \ Lexi COTTee
