PINOT GRIS

(Jim Tannock)

hink of New Zealand wine and two grapes come to mind – sauvignon blanc and pinot noir. There is, of course, greater diversity to the wines of the land of the long white cloud. “the whole A range of alternative grape varieties have natural been planted up and down the country and at a recent tasting of wines from all corners acidity is key” of the country, it was the aromatic whites that really stood out. It makes perfect sense that aromatics should shine – the greatest mark New Zealand has made on the wine world is the aromatic sauvignon blanc. But where sauvignon blanc production is concentrated around the Marlborough region, other aromatics are thriving across the country. The key to the success of these styles is New Zealand’s cool climate, which allows grapes to fully ripen while retaining good levels of natural acidity. “We’re a little skinny country with warm days that really cool down at night – the grapes don’t get too hot in the sun,” says Saint Clair winemaker Hamish Clark. “The whole natural acidity is key. It’s what gives us HAMISH CLARK our [aromatic wines’] retention of fruit flavour.” Keep an eye out for the following aromatic varieties in GewÜrztraminer the New Zealand section at your local wine shop. This pink-coloured grape, a native of France, has GrÜner Veltliner hallmark lychee and ginger characters and, when grown Austrian in origin, “gru vee” is an aromatic white with in cool climates, its high alcohol levels are balanced with perfumed and peppery aromas and full-bodied mineral, good acid levels. citrus and peach flavours. “Grüner veltliner is a cerebral “Gewürtz does well from Hawkes Bay down to wine for me,” says Marlborough-based Clark. “We have Waipara in the South Island,” Clark says. similar climates and growing conditions to Austria and AlbariÑo it’s exciting that grüner is being planted everywhere A native of Galicia in Spain and just over the border in from Hawkes Bay to central Otago.”

A mutation of pinot noir that has its roots in France, pinot gris is made into a crisp, flavourless white in Italy, where it’s known as pinot grigio. Gris is known for rich stonefruit and spice flavours and texture. You won’t find many wines labelled as pinot grigio in New Zealand. Its winemakers recognised the full-bodied, fruit-driven style the New Zealand climate helps create is closer to gris than grigio. “Pinot gris is being produced from central Otago all the way up to Hawkes Bay,” Clark says. “They’re all quite different, which is exciting. Central Otago

tends to be a little tighter and focused in white pear spectrum. They become more opulent the further north you go. “Marlborough is somewhere in between. In some years we get the classic white pear aromatics and in other years it pushes towards the quince spectrum.” Pinot gris is the most widely planted and popular of the aromatic whites behind sauv blanc, which Clark puts down to its easy drinking nature. “If you take it to a party, it’s usually the first wine to go,” he says. “It’s not oaked or, if it is, only lightly so, so it has general mass appeal.” \

northern Portugal, albariño is characterised by a saline minerality, along with fruity and floral characters of citrus, peach and green apple. “There are a few people having a play with albariño. They’re only small plantings and it’s an alternative white variety that shows real promise.” \ bthomas@theweeklyreview.com.au Online only »

Food \ KENDALL HILL REVIEWS STOKEHOUSE POP-UP

T

(Darrian Traynor)

he Stokehouse is risen. It seems only weeks ago the landmark St Kilda restaurant was destroyed by fire and everything was lost. All the tables (bar one) and chairs, the glassware, the entire cellar of 1000-plus bottles, even staff keys and wallets. Within 24 hours the heritage 1920s building had been razed. All gone. It was just weeks ago, of course. January 17. Even if you’re not remotely interested in the Stokehouse story, what happened next has been pretty remarkable. Little more than a month after the blaze I’m driving down Jacka Boulevard, past the Royal Melbourne Yacht Squadron and the St Kilda Sea Baths, half expecting to see some temporary, wedding-style marquee at number 30. But the Van Haandels, Stokehouse’s polished owners, would never have gone for a common or garden canopy. This is the mother of all marquees. The pop-up Stokehouse is a soaring structure of stretched white polymer that seems to fill every inch of the void left by the fire. At the entrance, a verandah carpeted in fake grass sports giant plywood wheelie bins brimming with leafy oak branches. Sustainable architect and florist to the stars Joost Bakker fashioned the botanical arrangements. Inside, vases are stacked on rusted metal shelving to decorate and divide the space into more intimate areas. Without trying to read too much into Bakker’s flourishes, I’m thinking: new shoots, fresh start. All that white and green, the putty-coloured bentwood chairs, timber-look flooring and a double-height wall of glass onto the bay give the space a pleasant conservatory feel. The views are unobstructed and better than ever before. “It’s good to be back!” beams the woman at the faux marble reception desk. I tell her I’m surprised the Serrano ham with grilled peaches marquee is only single storey. It looks so lofty from outside. “It’s too windy down here at the beach to do two avocado and some wafer-ish croutons for crunch.

Fresh figs with honey ice-cream. I would have liked more fig – it’s diced rather than whole, and quite sparse – but the honey ice-cream makes me happy. It tastes like leatherwood, fragrant and full-flavoured. There’s also a bavarois-like mousse of fig and fromage blanc, and a trail of almond praline crumbs for a surprise toffee crunch. Lovely stuff. Diners can pop into the pop-up only until Mother’s Day, after which the rebuilding begins. Get it while it’s hot (but not too hot, obviously). \ khill@theweeklyreview.com.au To read more reviews www.theweeklyreview.com.au/food

E

mma Alberici’s parents are part of that extraordinary generation of Italians who came to Australia in the 1950s and, through sharing their culture – notably their food, their wine, their coffee and their dolce vita approach – enriched our country. I think I’m right in saying Italian food has become our national cuisine, such is our attachment to it. But any Australian of Alberici’s generation who grew up amid Italian culture will tell you the same story – this Italian thread wasn’t as pervasive in our community in the 1970s as it is now. “When I rocked up at school with my rape and sausage sandwiches (rape, pronounced rah-pay, is a mustard green) I was so embarrassed. I’d crave Vegemite. My mum used to fry the rape off with garlic and sausage pieces and I’d get that crammed in my sandwich.” Back then, when Alberici was a small girl, Melbourne wasn’t all that comfortable being multicultural. “In earlier times there was still the whole ‘wog’ moniker that was put on us,” she says. “But I went to a Catholic girls’ school where 75 per cent of the class was Italian, so I didn’t feel so out of place any more. It was part of my story. We were surrounded by Italians.” Alberici, 44, is in her hometown for the holidays. We meet on one of those shining Melbourne days she hasn’t seen much of since moving to Sydney 20 years ago to take up a job with Channel Nine. And, as always, she’s happy to be back. “I think Melbourne’s got a lot of heart. When I first moved to

“i thought i was up for a big journalism job, but instead i got offered a job photocopying” “The wave is happening all over again because I’m hosting my cousin’s sons, now on their way to Australia to seek work, with youth unemployment in Italy at more than 50 per cent,” she says. “They’re from Milan, in their 20s. Almost exactly the same age as my parents were when they arrived.” Alberici studied journalism and economics at Deakin University in Geelong, and then Italian at Melbourne University. In 1990, she secured a cadetship on the Herald-Sun newspaper, where she worked for four years. “I thought I was up for a big journalism job, but instead I got offered a job photocopying and getting lunch for people,” she says with a smile. It was a good grounding. “In my first year I earned $9760 gross. Looking back I think that was quite character building. I was very lucky to have my family and a part-time job with my father at the Victoria Market.” Franco Alberici worked for 25 years at the market, where he had seven stalls. Right through uni, Emma helped sell fruit and vegetables. “I lived at Geelong and Torquay and I’d come home and work Thursday, Friday and Saturday with him,” she says. “I was asked in my

Questioner Sydney everyone was calling me a Mexican. I didn’t find there were the same abuse terms for people from Sydney. I think Melbourne’s more comfortable with itself.” As for Melbourne’s famed Italian food culture – well … “Nothing compares to my mum’s cooking,” she says. “I find it hard to eat out, Italian, because it’s a hard measure against my mother’s cooking.” Alberici, co-host of the ABC’s flagship current affairs program Lateline, today reflects on her parents’ journey to a new life in Australia. They met on a boat travelling from Italy in 1955. Her father, Franco, was from a little town called Boretto, near Milan, and her mother, Anna, from the island of Ischia, off Naples. In Melbourne, where they both settled, they stayed in touch. “My dad was actively pursuing her,” she says. “As she tells the story, she gave in. “They always tell the story that dad had two pounds in his pocket, and so was a two-pound Italian. He was one of eight children, six boys and two girls, and they’d done it pretty tough through the war. He was coming to Australia in search of work.” Franco Alberici, a cabinetmaker by trade, helped build the Snowy Mountains scheme. “He was invited here to help construct the country, really,” she says. (Franco died of lung cancer 22 years ago, aged 58). Alberici’s mother came to Australia for her brother’s wedding. “Her brother was the station master at Flinders Street, and he married one of the ladies here,” Alberici says. “So mum and her sister came out for the wedding and decided to stay.” The Albericis lived in Fitzroy and Thomastown then moved to Milan for two years before returning to Australia. Emma grew up one of three girls and attended Our Lady of Mercy College in Heidelberg.

interview for the Herald-Sun – by Piers Akerman – mostly what it was like working at the market. People talk about the fact that it’s who you know. I didn’t know anyone. He was supremely interested in the people I was meeting and what I was doing, and it was terrific.” The long – and early – hours were also character building. “The fact that my dad used to walk into my room on a Saturday morning at 4am and turn the light on and walk back out again. That was his way of waking me up. That toughened me up.” Alberici started at the ABC in 2002 hosting Business Breakfast and moved through various news shows including The 7.30 Report. For four years she was the ABC’s Europe correspondent. “That was the job I aspired to all my life,” she says. “Having the Italian language … and I’ve always loved Europe and I’ve travelled extensively there and I wanted to work there. So it was without doubt the pinnacle of what I’ve done.” Her fluent Italian was immeasurably useful when covering one of the running stories of that time – the saga of Italian billionaire and then prime minister Silvio Berlusconi. She filed many stories about his exploits and two Foreign Correspondent stories on the Berlusconi regime. “It was a story that kept on giving,” she says. “My husband and I made a pact when we went overseas that we would only holiday in Italy. Europe being so vast you can see so much but so little, so we decided we’d see Italy as well as we possibly could.’’ She enjoyed living in London but, like any true-blue Melburnian, missed good coffee. “London – being as close as it is to Italy – is quite culturally bereft compared to Australia, where we had this post-war migration of Italians. Italians came to England a lot later, so the poor

old English haven’t had the advantage that Australia’s had. You can only find a good coffee in London if it’s served to you by an Australian, or a Kiwi.”

A

lberici, along with Tony Jones, holds a critical role in our cultural landscape. Lateline is an agenda-setting, intelligent exploration of news issues with time on its side. “I have the incredible advantage of interviews that go 15-18 minutes, which I think is probably the longest interview on television,” she says. “It comes with great responsibility and I feel the weight of that.” It’s been a sharp learning curve. “I didn’t know much about politics, I have to say, when I first came back from the UK, so it was a curious role to be given,” she says. “I was probably one of the few correspondents who hadn’t spent time in Canberra. So I was a little overwhelmed by the role. Two years later I think I’m just now settling into it and understanding politics a bit more. “I do still ask some dumb questions. I asked [federal shadow agriculture minister] Joel Fitzgibbon what a [government] whip was. Not what it was, but what it did. I found myself listening quite intently to the answer.” Going out live to a politically savvy audience is a high-wire act. “You’re very exposed and I felt that very much in the first year as I was trying to negotiate my way through politics pretty much for the first time after 20-odd years as a journalist.” There’s also an element of sexism, at least in the reactions she gets. “When Tony Jones asks a hard question, he’s tough. When Emma Alberici asks a hard question, she’s a bitch. And I think that can be difficult to overcome as a broadcaster.” Does she have to be tougher than the rest? “No, I think quite the opposite. I think you have to find a softness. The best interviews are the ones where you don’t put the interviewee or the public offside and I think that’s a fine balance that we all attempt to tread. “We want the information for our viewers without upsetting the person we’re interviewing, while at the same time keeping the audience engaged. It doesn’t serve anyone well to have any of those stakeholders upset.” Her job, of course, is to keep people from prattling on or pushing their agenda. “Of course everyone’s pushing an agenda otherwise they don’t come on the show. They have something to say. My job, as I see it, is to challenge them to justify their position, to explain their position beyond their slogans or their prepared lines. People want more than that.” And balance is essential. “If you look at social media, I can do an interview and get labelled a stark-raving leftie by one bunch and an absolute paid-up LNP [Liberal National Party] member by the other. And [if that happens] I think I’m doing an OK job.” Alberici has for 11 years been married to Jason McCauley, a sound recordist, who has recently left Channel Nine’s 60 Minutes. They have three children aged nine, seven and six. “It’s not until you have kids that you realise how blessed people are when they go to work at nine and finish at five or six.” How have they managed it? “Well, that’s assuming we have managed it,” she says, smiling. “There’s been a lot of travel in our lives since day dot. Jason’s just left 60 Minutes because we both can’t be working the hours we’ve been working. He was away 25-30 weeks in 2013, and that’s a bit tough on the kids. I had my time in London, he had his time for a couple of years on 60 Minutes and now we’re regrouping, trying to work out the next fine balance.” As one of the ABC’s most influential operators, balance is something Alberici knows something about. \ pwilmoth@theweeklyreview.com.au

When broken-hearted council worker Sam (Mathew Baynton) witnesses a spectacular car crash on his way to work, he is drawn into a Hitchcockian conspiracy involving a kidnapped wife, a lost phone and several mistaken identities. Sam is, clearly, out of his depth. But we get the feeling that is somewhere he is used to being – he’s the sort of appealing, somewhat gormless no-hoper the Brits do so well. When he meets the even-more-hopeless but enthusiastic Phil (James Corden), the pair embark on an unlikely mission to save a beautiful woman, probably. Inspired equally by slacker bromance Shaun of the Dead and thrillers such as Homeland, this is a funny comedy with a complex, breathless plot. Shaun is an apt comparison, I feel, because there’s a cinematic energy to the production that recalls the work of that film’s director, Edgar Wright. Baynton is immediately endearing, looking something like a hungover meerkat as he stumbles from one near-disaster to the next. His partner Corden (most recently seen in opera flick One Chance) is as engaging as always, his daft-sidekick patter reminiscent of a less-irritating Ricky Gervais. Together, the pair might just delude themselves into becoming heroes. Sharp, clever and genuinely hilarious, this is a darkly comic gem. \

The Monuments Men \ Opens March 13, Rated M, 118 min » www.monumentsmen.com

Hollywood seems to be running out of ways to tell stories about Nazis. In the wake of a limp adaptation of The Book Thief comes this tale of wartime art theft and desecration. George Clooney recruits an all-star cast of middle-aged pals in an attempt to prevent Hitler stocking his private museum with Europe’s greatest treasures. This rag-tag bunch have been left behind by the war – too old, too infirm or too drunk to be heroes. Seizing their last chance, they undertake basic training and infiltrate occupied France. The core premise should, at least, make for a fascinating tour over familiar ground. As it is, Clooney’s film feels like reheated leftovers from far finer meals. Its scattered collection of sentimental scenes never quite resolve into a coherent story. Part of the problem is the film resists its potential silliness, mistaking itself for something much worthier. This should be a more convincing version of Indiana Jones 4, with the archaeologists racing cartoon Nazis and Russians. Instead, it plays out as a lightweight Saving Private Ryan. Rife with clichés, The Monuments Men left me wondering why we’re still making World War II films. With recent examples merely recycling or renovating old tales, maybe it’s time Hollywood – and the rest of us – finally moved on. \

New York pianist Kris Bowers describes himself as a musical omnivore. On listening to his debut LP, it’s hard to disagree. Musicians are forever overstating their eclecticism, but Bowers’ take on piano jazz is one fed by a love of film scores, ’70s synth-soul and ’90s hip-hop. Purists might baulk at this free-ranging approach to their genre, but there’s no doubting Bowers’ talent for jazz is immense and sincere. The 10 tracks here draw equally on Nat King Cole, Oscar Peterson and Miles Davis (with a dash of Kanye West, perhaps). The laid-back WonderLove is Sunday afternoon R&B, Drift is hypnotic and atmospheric, and #TheProtester is sprawling and chaotic – a glorious mess, evoking Bitches Brew. \

ath Woolcock always wanted to be a nurse. But after completing two years of a bachelor of nursing and midwifery degree at La Trobe University, she decided it was not for her. Far from being put off by the “gory” aspects of the job, Woolcock didn’t like the lack of opportunity to develop meaningful relationships with the patients. “I loved all the different units, particularly the epidemiology and practical classes,” she says. “I remember vividly giving my first flu and Clexane injection – it was fantastic.” But the staff ratios were frustrating and patients were often gone before Woolcock could develop a rapport. “I didn’t know where they ended up,” she says. “The continuity of things I found difficult. “I have the utmost respect for nurses, in their professionalism, work ethic and care of patients, but I decided I couldn’t face the third year of the course, which involved extensive hospital placements.” Woolcock decided to become a teacher and hasn’t looked back. The move was typical of this natural sportswoman’s practical and optimistic outlook. She makes the most of every situation, whether it is on the sporting field, in her job at Camberwell Girls Grammar School, or in life. Woolcock’s family has faced its share of challenges, but she has used them in a positive way. Her own drive ,and the determination that she has observed in her mother and sister, have helped her quickly establish herself as a respected netball player, coach and administrator, and now teacher. Now 28, Woolcock grew up in Vermont and then Hawthorn. Her sister Lauren, 24, is studying for her master’s degree in TV and film production at the Victorian College of the Arts. Their parents, Diane and Robert, ran a footwear business until Robert died when Woolcock was just seven. Diane continued to work in the industry to support the girls. It was not easy because Lauren has cystic fibrosis, which requires regular medical attention. None of this stopped them living life to the full. “She is very sporty too,” Woolcock says of her sister. “We just went different ways I guess. She’s very creative.” At school Woolcock loved sport and study. She was “a bit of a joker” but kept out of trouble and tried a bit of everything. “That’s the beauty of smaller schools with all the opportunities that you can have; you’re not competing for spots,” she says. “I was mainly into sport.” Netball, which she took up in primary school, became Woolcock’s passion through the Boroondara Netball Association (BNA). She is still involved as a player, coach and administrator on the BNA committee and Victorian Netball League Boroondara Genesis Committee. Throughout high school, Woolcock played netball on weekends, developing her skills as a goal shooter in the

local representative team. She also played tennis and plenty of backyard cricket. The time spent time visiting hospitals when her father was sick and Lauren’s regular visits to the Royal Children’s Hospital inspired Woolcock towards becoming a nurse. “From a very early age I always knew that I wanted to work within the field of health science,” she says. “I always found the human body fascinating, the physiology and the anatomy. My ultimate aim was to do paediatric nursing.” After changing tack and moving to Deakin University, Woolcock completed a bachelor of physical education with a minor in health, coaching netball and working in holiday programs while studying. Her aim was to work at a Girls Sport Victoria school. GSV is one of Victoria’s largest independent school sporting associations, with almost 15,000 girls in its member schools. During her fourth year Woolcock joined St Michael’s Grammar’s associate teacher program, where student teachers do their rounds and coach the school’s sport teams. After attending an all-girls’ school, this invaluable experience gave her a feel for a co-educational environment. “It took me out of my comfort zone,” she says. The hard work paid off. As soon as she graduated, Woolcock won a job as physical education (PE) teacher at Camberwell Girls Grammar, a GSV school. Teaching PE to girls in years 7 to 10 was only natural for someone so heavily involved in sport already, but she was still a bit nervous. The relaxed manner of Camberwell’s former head of sport encouraged Woolcock to hit the ground running – literally. “We had a very similar philosophy on PE and sport and participation and how we approach things,” she says. “Ultimately it’s about participation. [Winning] is a bonus.” Sport is not compulsory at GSV schools but it is hugely popular at Camberwell Girls, which fields teams in 18 sports and has 16 netball teams that play on weekends in the Boroondara competition. This in turn strengthens its interschool GSV teams. Woolcock, who was year 10 co-ordinator last year and taught VCE health and human development, runs the netball program with colleagues Cathy Poyser and Kerry O’Callaghan. Last year their year 9/10A team won its GSV zone competition and the school’s sport achievement award. In 2011 Woolcock and the Camberwell PE team introduced an intern program like the one she did at St Michael’s. It quickly grew from two applications in 2011 to 16 in 2013. Several interns are taken on each year to help with the sport program, coaching, camps and excursions. Some have already secured teaching jobs. The program has worked well, allowing Woolcock to

play a mentoring role and giving others the opportunity to learn. “The school benefits a lot as well,” she says. After a break in 2013, Woolcock plans to play netball again this year. Team sport has always had a special place in her heart and she is passing this on to a new generation. “I was always a team sport person,” she says. “(I love) the camaraderie, the teamwork.” Teamwork is also important at school, where Woolcock must be super-organised to fit everything in. She is often on campus by 6.45am to take 7am fitness and well-being sessions such as yoga, pilates, strength and conditioning work or running. When she isn’t working or caring for her spoodles Harry and Hugo, Woolcock loves to travel. In 2013 she joined a school history and science tour of the US. Over Christmas Woolcock flew to England and Europe, but didn’t expect to see too much sport in the depths of its winter. Back home, the school’s new

“You get to form really good relationships with the girls. You get to know them really well. We try to instil good morals” sports field and sports/science academy was nearing completion and Woolcock could not wait to use it. A naturally competitive sportswoman, Woolcock has also taken up touch football, keen to give everything a go even if it means throwing a ball backwards. “It’s interesting because it’s one of those sports that goes against all my natural instincts,” she says. Woolcock is keen to build on the school’s health and sport programs as head of PE and year 9 co-ordinator. She is always learning and refining her approach.

“I like to think of myself as relaxed, approachable and good-humoured,” she says. “Sometimes I may be the only one who laughs at my jokes. However, the learning experience has to be fun and meaningful to be effective. “A vibrant, active classroom can be a productive classroom, and I think discussion, peer work and interaction is pivotal in the learning process.” As well as teaching them, Woolcock encourages her students in sport and life. As a year level co-ordinator she is perfectly placed to do both.

“That’s been very, very rewarding, a lot of fun,” she says. “You get to form really good relationships with the girls. You get to know them really well. We try to instil good morals.” Woolcock also reminds her students that while life – and sport – can be competitive, there are many ways of following your dreams. She found her dream job after trying something else first, which gave her life experience and another perspective. “Ultimately there are so many pathways,” she says. “Do what you love and love what you do. Many people will change their direction in life, probably more than once, and that’s all part of the fun! “I wouldn’t change my pathway into teaching. The experiences I gained in nursing have been invaluable and I draw on the skills and knowledge on a daily basis.” \ ccritchley@theweeklyreview.com.au

Conditional love is critical EDUCATION \ Fans must not blithely follow their celebrity idols, writes Rose Wilson-Harrison

love media. I spend (waste?) hours on Tumblr and consume whole seasons of TV shows in a matter of days while drooling over the cast in between episodes (Teen Wolf, anyone?). I love to read and listen to music. I have always loved these things, but I haven’t always consumed them critically. One thing I’ve noticed in the world of fandoms and celebrity worship is that media literacy (otherwise known as critical thinking) is not well received by a lot of people. Pointing out that Steven Moffat’s version of Doctor Who is sexist will provoke defensive responses such as “Nobody cares! It’s not real life!” People don’t want the things they love to be ruined; I get it. But you can still love something (or someone) if it isn’t perfect. The point of media literacy is to be aware of messages that are damaging. If it turns out to be so bad you can’t enjoy it, well, that’s not really a loss (I’m thinking Robin Thicke’s hit song Blurred Lines here). Mostly, it’s possible to be aware of the negative aspects while still enjoying the media itself. Try to absorb media consciously: reflect on it and listen to other people’s opinions. Unconditional love of celebrities could align you with views that are damaging – be prepared to admit they have said or done something wrong.

Consider Jennifer Lawrence: everything she says is held up by her fans as relatable and funny – even when she makes jokes at the expense of the transgender community (naming her cat after transgender writer and musician Chaz Bono as a joke) or anorexic colleagues (saying she does not want to look like a “prepubescent 14-year-old boy” – in other words, someone with a serious eating disorder).

Fans condone and replicate this behaviour. What we need is to be able to distinguish between the good and bad things J-Law says, rather than blindly embracing everything. These people are role models, and the media shapes the way our society views things. Groups that lack representation in the media and are treated as a joke by celebrities, often have higher rates of suicide and abuse. A Department of Health and Ageing report found that Australia’s lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex and questioning young people are up to six times more likely to take their own lives. Media isn’t solely to blame for this, but it could become part of the solution. Sometimes all I want to do is consume media without thinking. But if we want our society to change how it treats minority groups, we can’t do that. They say we “digital natives” are better at critical thinking than previous generations – let’s put that to good use. We need to hold our celebrities and TV shows accountable for the messages they promote. \ editorial@theweeklyreview.com.au Rose Wilson-Harrison, 18, lives in Diamond Creek.

straight from the art

(Scott McNaughton)

Another View, Site 1 The red-granite and brass paving inlay flashed into my face one morning as a beam of sunlight leapt from its brass contours. The area around Parliament House was empty; I stopped to savour the silence and staring at me from the ground up was Melbourne’s history. The inlay by Ray Thomas and Megan Evans (1994) is part of Another View Walking Trail, created to recognise the shared history of city sites. This paving inlay uses Ceremony, a painting from the 1980s by Wurundjeri ngungareta (headman) William Barak, to acknowledge the history of the site as a traditional ceremonial ground and meeting place for the people of the Kulin nation. \

belong to everyone. Yet, most of the time we don’t notice symbols around us because we’re too busy tapping an increasingly smaller, lighter and more powerful device. At Enterprize Park, on the northern bank of the Yarra River, just west of Queens Bridge, Scar – A Stolen Vision (2001) is a collaborative work by indigenous artists inspired by the tradition of tree scarring. To stand here is to be in the midst of a living past that connects spirit and matter. Scar trees are created by removing bark to make canoes, coolamons and shields, but also for sacred purposes such as indicating a burial site. They can be found all over Australia, marking the historical presence of indigenous people and their connection to country. The installation is symbolic of scar trees in the landscape. It’s no coincidence the term “scar” denotes wounds, healing and memory – concepts also embodied in the installation. Artistic director Kimba Thompson brought together seven visual artists to create works that convey tradition and highlight continuity with past practices. Karen Casey, Craig Charles, Glenn Romanis, Maree Clarke, Ray Thomas, Ricardo Idagi and Treahna Hamm worked on 30 pier poles recycled from the Docklands. By carving, burning, painting and reshaping the poles, each artist has uniquely communicated their personal story of history and their connection to it. In a world where symbols have been replaced by brand logos, these contemporary scar trees give us an insight into traditional culture and practices while creating an opportunity to stir our curiosity. \ boomboom@rachelberger.com Follow Rachel on Twitter @boom_berger

The Travellers Nadim Karam’s installation, made from stainless-steel tubing and glass panels in 2005, is near a former Aboriginal meeting ground and the landing point for many early migrants. The Sandridge Bridge, built in 1888 (originally constructed in 1853), is the third on this site. It’s an especially potent combination; the location, the bridge – a symbol of travel and crossing from one destination to another – and the 10 sculptures, each about 7½ metres tall. Nine of the figures are motorised and they journey along the bridge. The Travellers reminds us of our multicultural society, with disparate groups often looking from afar at each other. \

Weathervanes Daniel Jenkins said of his 1993 sculpture: “I want people to look up and smile!” Indeed, each of the four whimsical weather vanes – a horse, pig, fish and bird – set high on tram poles to spin with each gust of wind, is guaranteed to put a grin on your face faster than any medication. Each animal represents a specific aspect of Melbourne: the bird symbolises the city’s parks and gardens; the horse symbolises culture and sport; the fish refers to our waterways; and the pig represents the city’s hope and future – and our sense of humour. The technique is repoussé; metal is beaten from its underside to give shape and relief to the design. \

or 20 years, Bluetrain café has been a favoured meeting place for Melburnians and tourists visiting the Southgate precinct. With its Aussie fusion cuisine, informal atmosphere, bustling interior and views across the Yarra to the city skyline, the café has become a popular Melbourne institution. So moving Bluetrain to a new home was a leap of faith. It happened when a refit was called for to freshen the venue and help grow the business. When Studio Equator design studio was engaged to create a new look, founder and creative director Carlos Flores says it was clear Bluetrain needed a bigger space. Eight months later, work began on a Southgate space that is the new home of Bluetrain. The restaurant’s designers had to create a vibrant space without losing the buzz Bluetrain was known for. “It was vitally important that the old atmosphere was kept in this new place,” Studio Equator interior architect Ben Fretard says. “It took confidence to make this move but customers are happy and say they feel this place has the same Bluetrain atmosphere. The place is packed and people are spending more time and money at the venue, so I think it’s been a very successful project.” The new-look Bluetrain has been divided into separate spaces. A red, yellow and blue colour palette, graffiti art and geometric graphics integrate each area. “The previous Bluetrain was a large open space, like a big open cafeteria. But big spaces don’t work any more; people prefer smaller spaces,” Flores says. Fretard adds: “The different zones mean you can have people watching football on the TV in the sports bar, other people having dinner in the main area, or people enjoying a coffee in the lounge area, and there’s a different ambience in each of these zones.’’ The sports bar has a large flat-screen TV, stools and high tables, and custom-designed geometric flooring. Lattice steelwork throughout the bar area reflects the geometric patterns throughout the restaurant. “We wanted to create a space where you know you’re inside the sports bar area,” Fretard says. “The ceiling is exposed and it’s a more blokey and industrial look.” A casual lounge area adjoins the sports bar.

But it has an “industrial chic” influence, Flores says. Large pillars in the main dining area feature graffiti art from Melbourne’s leading street artists, but the colours pick up on the standard Bluetrain palette. The dining area also has custom-made light fittings made of Lucky Beer bottles transformed into chandeliers. When lit, the luminous green lighting can be seen from across the river. “We have everything from graffiti to traditional architecture and modern architecture. It’s very textural,” Flores says. “We wanted the whole space to be very visual and surprising, so you get different views when you sit in different places.” The designers also created shipping “it took containers using roofing materials that were confidence stencilled and painted to look like genuine to make this containers.

For the first time, Bluetrain also has a 60- to (supplied) 70-person function space that can be part of the main dining area or curtained off for a private function. “The concept of this room was the lanes of Melbourne,” Flores says.

“We put the banquette seating high and used reclaimed vinyl floor tiles on the wall. They’ve been hand-stencilled to continue the geometric graphics. The lighting was custom-made using old bike wheels because there are a lot of bikes and cyclists in Melbourne.” Across from the main entrance, the new Bluetrain also has an outdoor dining area and kiosk that opens at 7am for anyone seeking an early caffeine hit. Fretard nominates fitting all elements into the space as the biggest challenge of the project. “Before we even started in here we spent a couple of months on the layout, figuring out the size of the kitchen and the dining area and what would go where,’’ he says. “At first the kitchen filled nearly half the restaurant – it’s still a good size but obviously had to be smaller than that.” The venue and its eclectic design have attracted old customers and new, and garnered attention from the design world from as far afield as Russia, the Ukraine, Turkey and the US. “It has personality, it’s interesting and it’s the kind of thing happening in New York, Berlin, Barcelona and LA,” says Flores. “Bluetrain now has a particular atmosphere – industrial chic – that people really like, and it’s still the people’s café and Melbourne’s meeting place.” \ smarinos@theweeklyreview.com.au » www.studioequator.com » www.bluetrain.com.au

PRAHRAN EAST \ 15 WynNstay Road This spectacular townhouse, five years old but in mint condition, employs traditional and modern materials in new and interesting ways. Architects McBride Charles Ryan have produced a luxurious, spacious house with a zoned floorplan. Beside the front door, a room with an adjacent bathroom could serve as a study or guest room. A central, open kitchen has a pantry, back-up kitchen and laundry. The kitchen, with wide white benches, has built-in European appliances. All living areas look over a north-facing courtyard and a solar-heated lap pool. In the entry, a central stair leads down to a three-car garage and a cellar and up to the accommodation floor. The main suite consists of a generous bedroom with balcony, a walk-in wardrobe and a luxurious bathroom with shower, twin basins and bath, all set in marble. Two other double bedrooms are planned around a study/sitting room, walk-in wardrobes, their own bathroom and even balconies of their own. Full use has been made of a deep site. At the northern end, a two-level structure provides a garage and storeroom at ground level (with access to a ROW) and a big studio and bathroom on the upper level. This last feature gives this property the level of accommodation houses haven’t had for half a century. \ NEIL CLEREHAN

mal James \ HICCUP AT THE HIGH END on SECOND SUPER SATURDAY

P

eople sometimes think of the upper end of the Melbourne property market as being in a different sphere from the wider market. It is certainly true that there are different drivers at the $3 million-plus level. The air is definitely thinner up this end of the food chain. There are simply not that many buyers able to buy at this level. What this means is that, unlike in the sub-$3 million segment, any changes to the market environment are much more noticeable. At the moment, for instance, the $1 million to $2 million market is so deep in terms of the number of bidders per auction that even if demand halved, clearance rates would show no appreciable difference. Two or three bidders one week instead of five or six bidders another still gets the job done and the property sold at most auctions. But when you’ve got only one or two potential bidders, any nervousness on buyers’ part can result in a no-sale – which is what we saw at the higher end on Melbourne’s second consecutive Super Saturday weekend. While the REIV clearance rate for Melbourne overall was a healthy 74 per cent

that weekend, on our more selective sample of the 45 $1 million-plus auctions that we covered, clearance rates were a somewhat less hale and hearty 56 per cent. Our bidder per auction indicator, Bidderman, also took a bit of a tumble from 2.6 to 1.7. Half the auctions we covered had just one or no bidders – a big change from the previous weekend, when 70 per cent of the auctions we covered had more than two bidders and a third had more than four. In one way our results could be taken with a grain of salt, because that weekend our auction coverage happened to be skewed towards the higher end properties above $2.5 million. Most of the auctions with four or more bidders fell into the $1 million to $2 million price range. Meanwhile, the higher end properties struggled to find bidders. Only one $2.5 million-plus property had more than one bidder. But we think this bias actually gives us an important insight about where the overall Melbourne market might be going. We think of the $3 million-plus segment as the canary or the ice cap of inner-Melbourne property. When things are going poorly in that segment, it says something about the wider market generally.

passed in for $3 million: 20 moorhouse street camberwell

Among the significant pass-ins that weekend was the four bedroom contemporary Karl Fender-designed house opposite parkland and the Yarra at 16 Winifred Crescent, Toorak. With just one bidder, the property passed in at $3.51 million and is advertised for private sale at $4.09 million. Another ultra-modern house, with five bedrooms and pool, at 14 Beresford Street, Caulfield North, had three bidders, but didn’t make it much past the low opening bid of $3.2 million. It was passed in at $3.36 million. Despite recent strong sales in the same street between $5 million and $8 million,

there was only one bidder for the renovated 1920s house with pool and tennis court on 2161 square metres at 106 Mont Albert Road, Canterbury. It passed in at $6.02 million and is listed for private sale at $7 million. We should also point out that there are some “stales” out there, unsold properties that were left on the shelf in 2013 and have been repackaged and re-presented and rebadged with a new agent. There are quite a few of them in this upper price bracket. What’s going on with this market? Is it already doing an about-face after the previous weekend’s red-hot results? Was it because the early birds had already found their worm and flown the coop? Was it that the market needs some time to digest the large amounts of stock on offer, or is it because, after a few good months, vendors are getting a bit too optimistic? What we can say is that, for the first time since November, some things didn’t fly out the door – especially properties above the $2.5 million mark – and that warrants some closer monitoring in the next few weeks. \ Mal James Principal Buyer Advocate 0408 107 988 \ 9804 3133 We Only Buy Homes www.james.net.au MARCH 12, 2014 \ The weekly review 39

This house was built by the 1951 Stawell Gift winner Gerald Hutchinson. The sprinter and former Royal Children’s Hospital finance director got Hawthorn bricks from a demolition site opposite the hospital and cleaned them to build this 1974 house in the desirable Balwyn High School zone on a 717-square-metre block. A subdued facade behind a double carport hides a house with exposed timber beams and ceilings. The main bedroom, with an en suite and skylight, is at the front, along with a formal lounge with open fireplace, formal dining room and study. A large family room – with doors to a pergola – and kitchen with stainless-steel appliances separate it from three rear bedrooms, which share a main bathroom. The en suite, bathroom and kitchen could be upgraded, or the site could be redeveloped. The garden has a quiet spot under a mature gum behind a front brick wall, while several rooms open to a paved, north-facing pergola and the garden. There is ducted gas heating and a split system air-conditioner. \ SUE HEWITT

Cleanliness is smack-dab next to godliness here, with three churches in sight of this immaculate two-year-old house in the heart of Kew. New owners will be spoilt for choice with three tramlines, two shopping strips and arguably the city’s best private schools in easy reach. This semi-detached house on 478 square metres opens up to surprisingly large internal spaces and uses natural light, neutral tones and timber floors throughout, from the formal living area at the front to the 10-metre-long casual zone that connects with the rear garden and outdoor dining area. The kitchen is practical and contemporary, with glass splashback, 2pac cupboards and stainless-steel appliances. Upstairs, a cosy rumpus room is made special by an adjoining wide undercover balcony overlooking the street. Two bedrooms, a family bathroom and main bedroom with en suite complete the accommodation. Storage is a wish fulfilled with bonus spaces under the stairs and in the hallway, laundry and tandem garage. \ JACQUI HAMMERTON

CAMBERWELL \ 34 CHRISTOWEL STREET The Golf Links Estate filled Camberwell’s last open space in 1927. J.L. Humphries, father of Barry Humphries (or Dame Edna Everage), built about 14 houses in the area in the late 1930s and lived next door at No.36 Christowel Street. “It was to this address that my infant self was conveyed,” Mr Humphries said in the opening lines of his autobiography. His father designed “perfect, ornate, modern bungalows”, according to council archives, including the three houses either side of this immaculately maintained four-bedroom house. From the street, little has changed by way of appearance, apart from a thriving garden punctuated by a magnolia tree and an umbrella-like blossom tree. Plenty of work has been done indoors, however. Five years ago parquetry floors, new carpets, bathrooms and kitchen appliances were installed, while the pool area was re-landscaped and a cabana built. The house’s original features, such as its art deco leadlight windows, open fireplaces and ceiling details, have all been restored. In the kitchen you’ll find granite benchtops and as-new Ilve appliances. All four bedrooms are upstairs, three with built-in wardrobes and desks. The main has an en suite, walk-in wardrobe as well as a big balcony. There’s also a single-car garage. \ LEXI COTTEE

Doors here reveal a tiled conservatory that connects to the meals area and kitchen. The family room has picture windows overlooking the rear garden and pool. At the rear of the house is a bathroom servicing the pool, while outside is also a workshop and a cabana with concertina doors. A return staircase leads to the second level.

From contemporary mansions to stately properties, big is always best in Toorak. With its impressive facade, lavish interiors and highest quality finishes, this ’30s residence fits the suburb’s mould. Situated on 920 square metres of land, this house has a street presence that few properties would rival. Behind a tall fence, flanked by hedges, is a symmetrical English-style garden. Perfectly proportioned, it has plenty of greenery and a gigantic silver birch. The house opens to a wide corridor, with large living spaces flowing off either side. The generous proportions and access to light reveal art deco-style architectural principles. The open-plan living, kitchen and dining area is impressive, and has five bifold doors opening up to the back terrace. The terrace leads down to the pool, cabana and garage. There is also an undercover car turntable. Upstairs has three large bedrooms, all with garden views and en suites. \ FRANCESCA CARTER

A seven-metre cantilevered copper box appears to defy gravity, suspended high above the driveway of this property. But if it’s awe-inspiring from the outside, it’s equally jaw-dropping inside; it doesn’t simply frame the verdant 180-degree view but draws you, suspended, into the scenery high above suburbia. Styling is strong in the house, built on a sloping block of 425 square metres opposite a small reserve and a few metres from Yarra Boulevard and the river. Vibe Design Group won the 2008 Building Designers Association design award for this property, as well as the award for the most effective use of timber. The use of silvertop ash-lined external walls is particularly effective. The interior is in three sections: living, kitchen and dining; the upstairs main bedroom and en suite; and a pod of two bedrooms, bathroom and rumpus out the back. There’s a small central pool with decking, views of which can be enjoyed from most rooms. \ JACQUI HAMMERTON

media \ the power of print Hello, fellow Linkedinarians and property gurus. Today’s rant is about property newspaper advertising. Over the past few years, a lot of clients (and their agents) think that an online listing is all it takes to sell property. They’re probably right if it’s a one-off property in the right location, and at the right price. But what about 80 properties to be sold under the hammer in one afternoon? The location was the The Metung Hotel, the properties were in Metung and Paynesville. That was the assignment for agent John Castran and the team here at Tomorrow. The campaign was back to the good old days. The auction was an event and it needed to be announced with full page ads in The Age and local papers. The result – 1500 people attended with 60 per cent pre-registered to bid. Every property sold without a vendor bid at an average of 20 per cent over reserve. The auction commenced at noon and the last contract was exchanged before 6pm. It was probably the largest auction ever to take place in Australia. This is a classic example of bringing buyers into a market, and unless they were already looking, online just won’t do it. LONG LIVE PRINT MEDIA!
