Virginia trioli \ First, spin no yarn

F

irst, do no harm. That’s a nice credo to live by, don’t you think? Just enough “do unto others”, just enough care and responsibility (unlike dry cleaners … but I’ll save that for another day). However, it is my melancholy duty to inform you that I now believe the solemn vow that has been the North Star of guidance for the medical profession since the time of Hippocrates needs to change. “Do no harm” doesn’t cut it: how about, “First, spin no yarn”? Let me explain. Why do doctors and surgeons lowball the experience of their medical interventions, surgeries and procedures? Why are we constantly sold the pup of undergoing “just a day procedure” – a simple, easy, painless thing – only to stumble from hospital, gauzed and groggy, with days of recovery stretching before us, sometimes including a post-operative care regime that would keep a registered nurse busy for a week? After seeing yet another friend stumble through the surprisingly challenging consequences of “just a day procedure”, I’m afraid, dear doctors, dear surgeons, I need to put it more plainly – first, spin no bullshit. Someone appears to be afraid of the truth here; maybe it’s the doctors, fearing that a frank disclosure of the aftermath of the procedure will frighten the patient away from a necessary intervention. Maybe we patients demand such reassurances that we fail to hear, or

CONCEPT HOME OPEN THIS WEEKEND

inquire after, the reality of what we’re about to do. Either way, the reduction of major surgeries to small, day procedures; the rise of the outpatient rather than the long hospitalisation; the rise of self-managed care has meant that after a brief spell of surgical twilight, we alone are in charge of ourselves – and often pathetically unprepared for it. Only a day procedure. Was there ever a more perfect example of spin? I say this knowing many serious and committed medical professionals will not like being accused of this one bit. Well, tough. Language matters. Language has always mattered, and never more so than when we alarmed, anxious and often uninformed patients are spoken to in soothing phrases that include words such as “just”, “only” and “day” surgery. Let’s parse this nuggety little falsehood, shall we? In the first instance, “just” doesn’t apply, because there is no such thing as “just” a day. It’s still a day, a full 24 hours of a day, in which work or school has to be abandoned, leave has to be secured, someone found to drop off and then collect the patient (usually at the utterly inconvenient time of early afternoon). This day can even begin one day early depending on the procedure, if there’s fasting or preparation to be undertaken. And despite initial murmurings that a return to work is certainly possible, it’s highly unlikely

you’ll be in a fit state to go back. Forget about it: the day will be lost. And neither is it “only” a day procedure, for there is the night of discomfort, and the days of recovery that then might follow, and bewilderingly you really only get a full sense of this when, post-operatively, you sit dazed and bandaged listening to the often quite complicated post-surgical care that you – or someone close to you – will have to undertake. The procedure is “only” a day-long matter to doctors because we no longer get to stay in a medical facility for more than one day. Doctors have outsourced the post-operative care – to us. Now there’s a great deal of sound evidence to show that the less time in hospital, the fewer serious infections we are likely to pick up, and everyone sleeps better in their own bed at home (just why do hospitals have to be so damn noisy?). But if you’re going to send us home for matters that would have once had us under the overnight care of a medical professional, then please do us the courtesy of telling us the truth about just how damn miserable we might be afterwards. We value your professionalism and your care, and while we might not thank you at the time for being blunt, we might not curse you so much later. \

here would we put a bathroom if we were going to renovate in 10 years? If I followed football, which team would I go for? If we ever got around to getting a microwave, who would be allowed to use it and could they make hot chocolate in it or not? These are the arguments we have in our house. People of a certain age will remember Claytons, and the fabulous piece of ’70s television advertising that spruiked this non-alcoholic drink as the drink you have when you’re not having an alcoholic drink. Over here, we have Clayton’s arguments, argy bargy about stuff that’s never going to happen. Fights about nothing that’s real. We argue in hypotheticals. For example: what if he ever found a vintage Holden Brougham for sale. Would he be allowed to buy it? What would we be doing if we hadn’t met each other? (He says I’d still be watching reruns of A Country Practice in a dingy share house, not that I ever did this, and I say he’d still be tapping his toes in cowboy boots behind a Fitzroy bar, serving drunks with beards and kids old enough to be his.) Would we interfere if one of the kids went out with someone we didn’t like, or had friends who were a bad influence, or if they failed a subject, or wanted to drop out of school at 15? There are always lots of hypothetical arguments to choose from when you have kids. In fact, we have hypothetical arguments about kids we didn’t even have, especially when it comes to the names we might or might not have called them, which room they’d have slept in, and what car we’d have needed to buy to fit them in. Then there’s pets. There’s an ongoing discussion about

what dog we might get if something happened to the two we already have, who are pretty much still puppies. Crazy. These arguments about things that don’t and may never exist, fictional propositions, imagined for whatever reason, may be because – and maybe this is a good thing – we’ve nothing else to argue about. My friend said he and his beloved had a ginormous screaming match when she noticed he was talking to a colleague on LinkedIn. She said the girl looked lonely and desperate and that’s how these things start. She was good-looking, and now she’s been unlinked. We’re so good at it here we’ve even invented the retrospective hypothetical; the hindsight fight. For example, if we had bought that beach house we saw for nix 20 years ago, how much would it be worth now and would we have let our extended family use it? If we didn’t fall out with such and such at that silly, drunken year-2000 party, would we still actually be friends with them? There is also such a thing here as the pre-posthumous fight, too, which is when you argue about what might or might not happen after you die. Always a fun one. Ah, the fun twists and turns you can take with a hypothetical argument. It’s much more flexible than a recurring, rehashed old barney – a hypothetical argument about something that may never happen offers lots of room for creative thought. And, one would argue, hypothetically speaking, much less emotional damage. But maybe we should discuss that a bit more … \ khall@theweeklyreview.com.au

Food \ kendall hill reviews WOODLAND HOUSE

(DARRIAN TRAYNOR)

T

aste-wise, the purple congo chip wedged in a log is faultless. It is salty and potato-ey, just as a good chip should be. The steely lilac hue is an added bonus, purple being one of my top three favourite colours. But we can’t decide about that log – is it acceptable whimsy, or WTF? This is the opening gambit of Woodland House, the mansion restaurant where Jacques Reymond reigned supreme for 27 years before handing over the keys in January to his kitchen lieutenants Thomas Woods and Hayden McFarland (hence Wood-land). At first blush, not much seems to have changed. The main dining room – still stately and hushed – is now suave grey with a white trim and crowned by puffy white petal chandeliers. Marble fireplaces still bookend the room, tall windows look onto the classical courtyard, and the textures – thick chocolate carpet, lashings of linen – are plush and comforting. Menus are still à la carte or degustation, starting at a reasonable $60 for four lunch courses and rising to $140 for the eight-course extravaganza ($235 with matching wines). We take the Goldilocks option – a $115, five-course tasting menu. The wine list remains a colossal reckoning of France and Australia’s finest vineyards, but unless you’re in the market for three- or four-figure bottles it’s a bore to wade through. I just want something affordable so the editor doesn’t go ballistic when I claim expenses. What’s changed, as evidenced by the chips in a log, is the new, more youthful sense of adventure McFarland and Woods bring to the table. It’s not entirely evident in a pork fritter appetiser – in essence a deep-fried rod of pig’s head torchon with an eggy muddle of cornichons, baby capers and onion. It tastes familiar and pleasant and unexceptional. There’s more ambition in the eel, which comes smoked, miso-glazed and charred, and then plated with a cheeky tomato and cucumber jelly and some aniseed crème fraîche. But wait, there’s more – a waiter pours gazpacho from a mignon copper saucepan and the dish is ready for review. It’s very mannered, very correct, also a touch exciting. Service is odd at times. Our first waiter is so awkward he reminds me of myself as a callow young restaurant recruit, daunted by my guests. Another responds to a query about what’s in the savoury scroll thingies with, “Well flour, obviously …” (Plus cheese, espelette pepper, onion, he adds helpfully.) That said, when service is on song, it sings. The hero ingredient of the salt-crust roasted beetroot is beetroot, obviously. I find it so-so. The main disc of beetroot tastes pretty normal to me. There’s some sliced rainbow beetroot, always charming to look at, and more clever jellies of golden and red beetroot, and blackberry juice. Some beetroot leaves at the bottom. I love beetroot and the different textures are fun but this needs more going on, flavour-wise.

Grilled Robbins Island Wagyu beef

South Australian King George whiting is totally lush. It is miso-glazed, like the eel, and topped with soybeans and pea shoots. It proves the chefs know when to leave well enough alone. When they start with a slab of star produce, they’re smart enough not to eclipse it. The wagyu cow comes from Robbins Island in Tasmania, where it grazed on salty grasses and inhaled the cleanest air on Earth before making its way to my plate today, really quite rare and seasoned with horseradish, a splodge of rocket and a bordelaise sauce of red wine, butter, bone marrow and shallots. The sauce is scrumptious but the meat’s too bloody for me. It’s served with taro chips that remind me of those salted potato sticks you buy in a bag. I ask a waiter if we could perhaps have some more bread. “Yes,” he nods, “I’ve just got some in the oven.” Which has to be one of the loveliest sentences in the English language. Desserts come with their own novelty napkin, a humbug-striped lapkin unfurled onto the diner with a smile. All this fuss is for something called “Peaches and

plums, malted sorbet, crisp milk” in the spoken-word patois of Woodland’s thoroughly modern menu. What this looks like is a crescent of poached peaches and assorted plums, served with (more) jellies of cardamom-spiced poaching liquid, dehydrated peach, and shards of dried milk. The waiter explains the process to me. I wish he hadn’t. “So, they boil up the milk until it gets a skin on top, take the skins off and then dehydrate them in the oven.” It looks like paint and tastes like … dried milk skin. Yerch. On the plus side, it’s a pretty dish – all the plates have been a picture to look at – and the malt ice-cream is terrific. Adventure and whimsy are all very well but some dishes leave me puzzled rather than tickled pink. That said, there’s enough promise here to suggest Woods and McFarland can breathe new life and energy into the Williams Road landmark. \ khill@theweeklyreview.com.au To read more reviews www.theweeklyreview.com.au/food

Interview \ Peter Wilmoth meets michael kuzilny

Calmer chameleon F

or someone who has seen so much grief and horror, Michael Kuzilny is an extremely relaxed presence. If his calming and reassuring phone message doesn’t slow down your heartbeat – when he tells you to have a great day, you go out of your way to do so – his measured tones and positive outlook over coffee in the city most definitely do. Kuzilny is a passionate advocate of the benefits of meditation, has written a guidebook for young people and stresses the importance of men being able to express their feelings and not bottle up their pain. On this last, he knows what he’s talking about. Kuzilny spent 10 years as a police officer in busy and tough stations – St Kilda and Frankston – and has seen the worst of human nature. Most especially on the night of August 9, 1987, when Hoddle Street killer Julian Knight fatally shot seven people and wounded 19 others. It was a gruesome introduction to the world of policing. In his early 20s and just a short time into his career with Victoria Police, Kuzilny was sent to Hoddle Street on a Sunday night after reports of a lone gunman shooting at people and at passing cars. “I’d only been on the job for a few weeks when the call came through that there was a code 33, a gunman shooting people, there were bodies down,” he says. “We quickly jumped in the car. I was with a sergeant. I didn’t know where we were off to.” He was travelling towards one of Australia’s worst massacres and what he saw stayed with him for years. “We saw people on the ground, shot, dead, injured people. It was a wake-up call to the world of policing. “We saw the gunman shooting towards innocent people, towards moving vehicles. It just became a very awful crime scene. Nobody knew what to do. I stayed there for two days because we had to block off the streets. “I remember how arrogant people can be. People wanted to get to their homes and they were complaining they couldn’t get to their street. But there were quite a few bodies that had to stay there – it was a crime scene and had to be preserved. “It was a shock and I thought about it many nights. But when you work at the busy stations like Frankston and St Kilda, you’re getting 20-30 jobs a shift … you’re getting drug overdoses, you’re getting fatals in car accidents, you’re giving death messages. I found that death was certainly a part of being a policeman.” Kuzilny, 49, was born in Hamburg, Germany. His father, John, was a builder and his mother, Vera, was a hairdresser. They felt there were better opportunities in Australia so, in 1974, when Michael was 10, they moved to Fountain Gate, in south-east Melbourne. It didn’t work out and 12 months later they returned to Germany. But four years later they returned and settled in Mount Eliza, where Michael did his Higher School Certificate (year 12). He was interested in law but his marks weren’t good enough “because I was mucking around too much”. He was working in a gym as a fitness instructor when a friend handed him an application form for the police. It was the beginning of experiences the rest of us can only wonder at, including knocking on front doors to deliver “death messages”. 12 The weekly review \ MAY 21, 2014

“It was very sad,” he says. “After a while I got used to it. I knew I had to make those people feel special. It also made me realise that no one knows when it’s their last day on this planet. “I remember one time there was a fatal accident on the Frankston Freeway and I went to see the English lady – they’d only just emigrated to Frankston. Two young boys were in the bathtub. It was just disbelief. I had to tell the two boys that their father had passed away. It made me grow up very fast. It’s almost like I’ve lived a few lifetimes.” In 1996, he quit the force: 10 years was enough. “I knew a lot of police officers who stayed there for 15, 20 years, and a lot of them, unfortunately, were very disgruntled, negative. They saw certain beautiful places of Melbourne as a crime scene. You remember when you picked up some drunks or dead bodies. “Ten years, I think, was just enough to change my life. And most people wouldn’t be silly enough to get into another job that was stressful, but I went along the same path and became a criminal defence lawyer.” Kuzilny represents clients in matters usually dealt with in the Magistrates’ Court and sometimes in the County Court. As a cop, he tried to help people. “That was what I tried to do. But with so many jobs and so many calls – and at that time the police force was very understaffed, so it was difficult to spend as much time with victims of crime … It was a bit of a rush. “My motto when I got out of the police force was that I wanted to help people, good people who make mistakes, and help them get back on track. “It’s people who’ve gone off the rails because of stress in their lives. A lot of people in the age group 18-35, maybe they come from a family that’s split up, maybe it’s people who got onto drugs. Ice is a really big problem in the courts at the moment. Sometimes people suffer from anxiety and depression and can do the wrong thing by the law. “Most don’t have a long history of offending and most don’t come back, which is a good thing.” He discovered meditation 25 years ago. “I was going through my own turbulent times. I was in the police force, working very hard. I remember there was a whole year when I wasn’t happy. I was down, I wasn’t smiling much. You could almost call it situational depression because of some of the jobs I’d been through. And at the same time I had some relationship problems. “I met a young chap who introduced me to meditation. He said, ‘Why are you chasing all the time, chasing promotions, money, always having to be everywhere’. He took me away to a two-day meditation retreat where you couldn’t talk. “I didn’t quite understand the purpose, whether it was a religious or spiritual thing. After two days of not talking and meditating and really concentrating on simplicity, I felt so light and free when I walked out of there and I haven’t stopped since. It gives me a protective armour. It stress-proofs your mind.” It was rare for a police officer to meditate. “It was a very stressful job. After night shift there’s a lot of drinking, a drinking culture. Even early-openers – after night shift, people would have a drink or quite a few drinks in the morning. I found a lot of people going through a lot of stress and anxiety,


“i felt so light and free. meditation gives me a protective armour. it stress-proofs your mind”

even though they were putting on their masks every day. “A lot of police officers were going through separation and divorces. I remember in the garage of the police station there were 14 people and I think 13 were separated. There were a few suicides along the way, which is quite sad. Friends of mine. “It’s one of those jobs where, quite often, people are too afraid to get help because they think people might start talking. A lot of people, I felt, were suffering in silence. “It’s a male thing and even more so in the police force because we’ve got the uniform, the badge and the gun, and you certainly don’t want to go and see anyone and be perceived as broken.” Kuzilny shared his thoughts with colleagues he could trust. In the tough-guy world of the police force, there was scepticism. “Western society still thinks meditation is some sort of religion or a spiritual thing or some new-age guru thing. But it’s really a lifestyle choice as part of a health regime.”

M

any colleagues in the force didn’t understand. “There were a handful who told me they did their own form of meditation, and they incorporated that into their fitness. Some people had the right idea. Some would say, ‘That’s a lot of rubbish, my meditation is watching the footy or playing golf’. And that’s a great pastime, but it’s not calming the mind.” He says meditation allows the mind to become free. “The mind is like a hard drive on a computer. If we just keep on overloading it, things are going to start going wrong. Meditation almost has the effect of clearing the mind. I did lighten up, I felt a lot happier. On the days I don’t meditate I can really feel [the difference] in how you perceive the world.” In his role as a lawyer he sees clients putting on a brave front. “People come in and I say, ‘How are you?’. A lot of people put on the mask and say everything’s OK. They say, ‘I’m great, how are you?’… I try to remove their mask and say, ‘Be authentic – what’s happening?’ And a lot of them break down and say, ‘Look, I can’t handle it, I’ve broken up in my relationship’, they’re depressed, anxious, got a second drink-driving offence coming up. “Quite often it’s a good thing that they ended up going to court because it makes them seek help from a professional counsellor.” Kuzilny has written three books. The first two are A Life in Crime, about his journey in the police force, and Success: You can make it!, a handbook for young people to “design their own journey”. His newest release is an e-book Meditate or Go Crazy. “For me it was to get the message out there that we’ve created a very stress-filled world and it’s getting crazier.” For 10 years he has hosted a show on Channel 31 called Tough Times Never Last (Mondays at 9pm). Kuzilny meditates daily for an hour from 4.30am. “It calms me, gives me a sense of detachment.” He has been married for 13 years to Aleta Howe, a drug and alcohol counsellor. They have two children, Alana, 12, and Mitchell, 10. “Fatherhood is a blessing every day,” he says. His philosophy is that we need to slow down. “The most important thing is peace of mind,” he says. Kuzilny emailed me after our interview. “Have the best weekend,” he wrote. After an hour with him talking about the need for peace and calm, I might just do that. \ pwilmoth@theweeklyreview.com.au We welcome your feedback @ www.theweeklyreview.com.au/interviews read »

A

reti Arvanitis’ family migrated to Melbourne from Athens when she was a baby and, as she grew up in the inner suburbs, Arvanitis remembers developing an eye for luxury cars. It’s a grand passion that has never died. “My parents had the standard Ford sedan but I loved classy cars. I don’t know where it came from,” she says. “I think for most people there’s a brand of car that you are drawn to and for me it has always been the Maserati. As far back as I can remember, that was my ultimate car. I always told myself that one day I’d drive one.” On a Thursday afternoon, Arvanitis is at the Zagame Maserati showroom in Swan Street, Richmond. She’s sipping a complimentary espresso as her Maserati GranCabrio MC undergoes its weekly valet. Around her, the stylish showroom is littered the with millions of dollars worth of cars – a sleek red Ferrari polished to perfection, and a number manual of glossy Maserati sedans and sports cars. Zagame has held the official Victorian dealer licence for Maserati since 2005 and is also the official Victorian dealer for Ferrari, Lamborghini and Lotus. Arvanitis’ sleek black car was her birthday present to herself and, after six months of driving around town and cruising along Beach Road in the sunshine, the car has lost none of its glamour. Her two teenage sons are equally happy with their mother’s choice. “Because it’s a roomy four-seater, this is now my everyday car. So I drop the boys to school and take them to their sports commitments in the Maserati. They love mum’s cool car,” she says with a laugh. Arvanitis chose Maserati because of its association with Italian craftsmanship, power, performance and good looks. This year is Maserati’s centenary and the values and goals of the car manufacturer remain the same – to build cars with outstanding sporting performance, quality, comfort, luxurious interiors and elegant lines. Each car is a blend of attention to detail, Italian craft traditions and advanced technologies. It takes at least 200 man-hours to carefully build each car. Maserati is expecting an eight-fold sales growth in two years in Australia and New Zealand, partly supported by the launch of the new Quattroporte and the Ghibli – a new, smaller sedan that will become the first Maserati production car in history to be powered by a diesel engine, with a 3.0-litre V6 turbo-diesel. In early 2015, the new Levante SUV will also arrive in Australia. Arvanitis has owned a series of luxury vehicles but this is her first Maserati and the car has met her expectations. “It’s the body shape, the sound – you hear the car coming before you see it and it’s an easy drive. A big factor for me was also the fact that it’s a four-seater. As a mum, that was a big drawcard,” she says. “I was lost for words the first time I got behind the wheel. I’ve never felt that same sensation in a car. You can feel the power. It makes you feel very special.” Arvanitis and her husband, Peter, are self-made success stories, owning a transport company and now an aged-care business that they’ve run for several years. Over time and through hard work and long hours, they have expanded the business. They are also property developers with a keen interest in breeding Labour’s reward: and racing horses. Owner Areti “We work hard and when you are in business there Arvanitis with can be a lot of stress. Our cars are a reward for what we her pride have worked to achieve,” says Arvanitis. and joy. “When I get in my car, it’s some time out and a way (Chris to relax.” Hopkins) Arvanitis’ husband is also a luxury car enthusiast. After owning Porsches for most of his life, he recently bought a Ferrari 458 Spider. “But I don’t drive that,” laughs Arvanitis. “I’m happy to be a passenger in my husband’s Ferrari, but I prefer to drive my Maserati.” The GranCabrio MC has a 4.7 litre V8 engine capable of generating a massive 460 HP.

engine for better dynamics and balance and it showcases its racing credentials with the trademark throaty Maserati roar. The sporty exterior is matched inside with the use of materials such as high-performance Alcantara and carbon fibre. The forged wheels are lighter and stronger than standard wheels, and coloured calipers add to the sporty finish. Arvanitis chose a black interior with contrast white stitching. “It’s a sophisticated car with an edge. It has all the luxuries and comfort I want without losing that sporty appearance,” she says. “I haven’t had a long road trip yet but I’m just as happy driving around town. Being behind the wheel is a joy

whether the drive is along the beach or around the city.” The car’s aesthetics and sound naturally turn heads. Arvanitis has been approached and greeted by car enthusiasts in car parks, supermarkets, shopping centres and at traffic lights. “A lot of people give me the thumbs-up as I’m driving along,” she says with a laugh. “What I love most is when other women tell me how much they love my car and when they say how great it is to see a woman behind the wheel. I think that’s a great compliment.” \ smarinos@theweeklyreview.com.au » www.zag.com.au MAY 21, 2014 \ The weekly review 21

Buildings that change lives Developing our city \ Well-designed housing can transform its residents, writes Clare Kennedy

W

alking down McIntyre Drive, Altona, you could be forgiven for dismissing it as another quiet suburban street. But here, a visionary housing design is challenging the definition of social housing. Discreetly located behind a screen of eucalypts is the McIntyre Drive Social Housing project, a complex of 69 one-bedroom apartments for singles and couples over the age of 55 that is funded by the Commonwealth’s Economic Stimulus Plan. In November last year it won the 2013 National Architecture Award for residential architecture in multiple housing – significant because it’s the first time a social housing project has won. Managed by Yarra Community Housing and designed by MGS Architects, who are making a name for innovative and thoughtful social housing, McIntyre Drive is turning lives around. In January, the project’s lead architect, director Eli Giannini, and her team interviewed the residents. “I’m 73, and the first day I moved in I said, ‘This is the first day of my new life’,” says Bob, who suffers from a physical disability so lives on the ground floor. He is

particularly delighted by the colour finishes and the communal courtyard and gardens, which provide areas where friendships can flourish. Frank, another resident, says his life has also been transformed by his new home. “I was in a very bad situation and I had to get out fast. Since I’ve been living here, I’ve been so relieved. My blood pressure for the first time in five years is back to normal. If a burglar could get in here, I’d give them a medal. I saw the outside and thought ‘Wow, the inside has got to be good’,” he says. Many of the McIntyre residents had been living in unstable, insecure accommodation before moving in. “They tell horror stories of places they’ve come from, the fact they were frightened and used to get broken into constantly and were scared to leave their room; really awful stuff,” says Giannini. “The contrast between that and what they’ve got now is very gratifying.” When considering design, Giannini tried to balance residents’ needs with those of the community. “On the one hand you want to do something well designed, so you put in a lot of detail and care to make it stand

out, but at the same time you are also conscious that it doesn’t scream ‘I’m a social housing development’.’’ The three-storey complex is scaled back to two storeys at the front so that it is more typical of the surrounding area. Along a residential boundary on the south, balconies are recessed rather than overhanging to give privacy to residents on both sides of the fence. Giannini also retained the existing driveway with a drop-off area and off-street parking. “It also works as a place for spontaneous social interaction. People can wait under shelter for a taxi or a friend to pick them up. Or just hang around those areas without an excuse and not feel isolated,” she says. The entrance to the development is off a courtyard. It was designed as a communal area with a vegetable

“Many of the tenants have never had a stable home or had lived in poor housing previously, so we wanted them to have something with that extra level of design that would give them a sense of ownership and pride in the place they live.” In 2012, Giannini visited Het Schip (The Ship) in the Netherlands – an iconic housing project designed by architect Michel de Klerk in 1919 that set a national benchmark for high-quality, beautiful social housing. She feels an affinity with what De Klerk was trying to achieve, explaining that it is important not to build dwellings that are only just “good enough” for people. “Home is a really important thing. People’s lives can be turned around just by having a place to live that they feel safe in, it’s a simple as that,” Giannini says.

garden and barbecue. The area can be viewed from above, making it more secure. The apartments are about 50 square metres, depending on where they sit. That’s quite a generous size for a single-bedroom apartment, which caters for the couples. The upper levels contain small lounges. Giannini says health workers don’t always want to go into tenants’ apartments and tenants don’t always want those professionals in their private domain, so they can meet outside in this common area. Colour has been thoughtfully used to give the apartments personality. “I tried to introduce colour as a way of making the apartments feel identifiable from the street, so people could say, ‘I live in the pink apartment or the green apartment’,” she says.

“Because we come from a different background where we are so used to having a place to live, we forget how important that is. I mean, I really value my own place and the things I can do to it, and I assume that others are just the same. “Architects can sometimes be associated with out-and-out luxury and we do do things at the luxury end of the spectrum, but generally we are interested in community building. “So schools and social housing are all projects that have a high degree of satisfaction because you know the community is using them.” \ ckennedy@theweeklyreview.com.au » MGS Architects won the 2013 Australian Institute of Architects’ Frederick Romberg Award for Residential Architecture – Multiple Housing.

IAIN HALLIDAY \ BURLEY KATON HALLIDAY

With its plush, red-velvet seating, heavy white drapes, Murano chandeliers and extensive use of marble, lunch or dinner at Rosetta’s is a memorable experience – which is exactly the effect that restaurant designer Iain Halliday and owner Neil Perry were aiming for. Rosetta was highly commended by the judges. “We began with an empty shell with very elegant glazing that wraps around four sides. It’s a large space with high ceilings and I saw this space as a wonderful opportunity,” says Halliday, director of Burley Katon Halliday. Harry’s Bar in Venice – where the Bellini cocktail was invented in 1948 and which was declared a national landmark by the Italian government in 2001 – was a source of inspiration for Rosetta. “It had to be comfortable, classically inspired and evocative of wonderful clubs like Harry’s Bar,” Halliday says. “We wanted to create something that was timeless, not about fashion and that would age gracefully. But it’s tempered by some tongue-in-cheek references to Italian culture, too.” So there are some large-scaled commissioned works on stretched canvas, the reception desk is finished in the perforated tan leather that is used to trim Ferraris, and there is extensive use of viola marble shot through with crimson and ochre that is often seen in old Italian cafés. The outdoor area has cushions inspired by an Emilio Pucci pattern, the chandeliers and table lamps are authentic Murano glass and there is a wall of photographs of famous Italians, including Luciano Pavarotti, Sophia Loren, Domenico Dolce and Stefano Gabbana. “Italians have a wonderful way of mixing hard materials, like marble, with lush fabrics like velvets,” Halliday says. “It’s a cross between Spartan and luxe and I find that fascinating about Italian interiors. Neil Perry is one of our greatest chefs and we wanted to create an interior that was a good frame for his cooking.” \

ROSETTA RISTORANTE

designed with taste JIMBO & REX It’s been described as Crown’s newest pub experience and it’s the place to enjoy a traditional pub meal or a casual drink with friends or workmates at the end of a busy week. Think a thick chicken parma, steaks, salt and pepper calamari or baked New York cheesecake and apple crumble. At the centre of the venue is a 14-metre bar wrapped around the kitchen. A dining room towards the rear of the venue easily seats 150 people. “It’s a large, deep space but our brief was to ensure we created a comfortable, approachable, warm and aspiring interior,” says Miriam Fanning, principal of Mim Design. “When we do a design process in the office we do a workshop, review the menu, the client demographic and what we want to achieve for the space. We talk about the interior architectural constraints and we sit down and tailor-make a philosophy to suit the space and all the criteria. “The philosophy for Jimbo & Rex was that it had to be friendly, cosy, have pockets within the space that entertain the eye and a varied interior throughout.” Key features of the restaurant include natural timbers, hand-glazed brick tiles, hand-painted walls and natural ceiling beams “The grey marble bar stands out. We wanted something heavy duty and and we wanted the bar to feel monolithic and traditional because it is so big,” Fanning says. A hand-painted wall decorated with an ampersand design is in glazed brick tiles while another wall is clad in recycled timbers. “The timber wall is a beautiful texture and when it’s illuminated at night, it feels quite warm,” Fanning says. “We’ve stitched the ampersand wall together with two different colours – a cool colour and a warm colour – and the carpet continues that stitched effect and runs through the grand dining room. It’s about melding colours and textures, people and personalities.” \ » Jimbo & Rex, Level 1, West End, Crown, Southbank www.crownmelbourne.com.au/jimbo-and-rex 34 The weekly review \ MAY 21, 2014

The menu includes chicken tagine, olives, cumquats and almonds, rghaif – a crepe-like pasty of spinach, eggplant, almonds and yoghurt – and Moroccan fritters spiced with cardamom sugar. B’Stilla is downtown Morocco in Melbourne. It was up to e2 creative director Alex Ritchie to bring the Middle East to a South Yarra side street. He used the footprint of the previous restaurant to create a venue with three distinct eating experiences revolving around the bar. “I hadn’t been to Morocco, but I’ve studied its architecture and I knew it was about textures, light and shadow. I also knew that Morocco engages the five senses,” Ritchie says. “We wanted to bring the five senses to life, but we wanted the venue to look authentic and not ‘themed’.” Ritchie worked with a lighting designer from the initial stages to create ambience. “We modelled the space around the lighting effects and we wanted the ambience to be subtle so the food and quality of service stood out. The lighting underpinned everything and then we looked at colours and textures,” Ritchie says. One eating area has a Moroccan market ambience, with warmth created by the use of a powerful red rendered finish and exposed bulbs typical of a street market. Another area uses Moroccan patterns and subtle whites and greys to create a courtyard feel. There’s also a private dining area for about 20 people. “It’s still visible from the restaurant but almost feels like it’s behind a veil,” says B’Stilla owner Jason Jones. “The idea is that customers can come back and have a different experience. Smells are an important part of the experience, too. You can smell roasting spices and meats and tagines and on the front terrace we have garden beds filled with small citrus trees and herbs. The taste of the food, the smells, the colours, textures and lighting work together.” Ritchie says B’Stilla became exactly the space he imagined. “Now I don’t feel like I have to go to Morocco at all!” he says. \ » B’Stilla, 30b Bray Street, South Yarra bstilla.com

SAMANTHA EADES \ EADES&BERGMAN

Eades&Bergman director Samantha Eades began with a “very ordinary” café. In the space of six-weeks that café was redesigned and transformed into a trendy, New York-style venue with exposed-brick archways, industrial-look lighting fixtures, recycled timber floors and an exposed staircase that provides clever storage for wine racking. “We had six weeks to come up with the concept, roll it out and open the doors – that was the biggest challenge,” says Eades, Director at Eades&Bergman. “We had to work day and night because Melbourne Fashion Festival was on and the owner had booked the launch party at the venue.” The owner had visited New York and returned with the concept of a meatball and wine bar for Flinders Lane. Eades’ design won a high commendation on the Eat-Drink-Design awards night. “He wanted the place to be industrial but not hard-edged, homely and rustic but also cool, NY style,” Eades says. “We stripped the place and as we took off old plaster we discovered the beautiful brick archways down the right side. So we pared back to the original brickwork. We worked with a local industrial designer and also created the industrial-looking lights with another designer. The recycled timber throughout gives the place warmth. “The back wall features an aged mirror effect to make the space feel bigger and there are some high drop-down tables at the front of the restaurant so if there are functions, more space can be created. Smaller day tables sit in between the brick arches and we discovered a light well and used that to create booth seating.” Handmade Italian tiles decorate the bar area and steel racks provide storage space. “It’s pared back to raw elements. It’s not ostentatious and neither is the food – everything about the place is simple and understated,” Eades says. “The best part of what I do is seeing a vision turned into a reality. When you walk inside this place, it’s buzzing.” \ » The Meatball & Wine Bar, 135 Flinders Lane, Melbourne www.meatballandwinebar.com.au » eat-drink-design.com MAY 21, 2014 \ The weekly review 35

can’t decide which toilet paper to buy without considering the environment, the source of its basic components, the texture, the ply and the puppies that star in the soft and absorbent television commercials. Living is not simple; we’re constantly knee deep in condescension and merchandising rubble. Almost every item we’re lured into buying is sealed in indestructible bubble wrap or some other kind of packaging that needs to be broken, snapped, blown apart or, if it’s in my hands, smashed with a mallet. I’m also tormented by the quackery of urban professionals who choose to use the word “challenge” when they mean “problem” or refer to their friend Barry as “having issues” when any individual who refers to their chainsaw as “liebchen” is clearly a nut-bag. Friends who worry about my mental health suggested I meditate with the help of music or get grounded by spending time in nature. Earlier this year I accidentally combined the two by going to a concert at the Sidney Myer Music Bowl. Every summer, the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra gives free outdoor concerts at the Bowl. This summer, sitting on the lawns at Kings Domain along with hundreds of other Melburnians, the meltingly beautiful music of Rachmaninov’s Piano Concerto No. 3 and Tchaikovsky’s Pathétique untangled my brain and removed all obstacles – for a short time anyway.

In live performance, sound is everything. I was initially perplexed by what the clever-burgers at Ashton Raggatt McDougall Architects were doing. Finally the honeycomb exterior made sense and the acoustics in the 1000-seat Elisabeth Murdoch Hall knocked my socks off. The Melbourne Recital Centre opened in 2009, offering two of the finest acoustic spaces in the southern hemisphere, both the shape of a shoebox – which experts agree delivers the best sound. There’s no proscenium, just the stage; performers and audience are in the same space – removing that “us” and “them” vibe and delivering a more powerful connection. \

Festival Hall Melbourne’s Festival Hall is an indoor venue with an outdoor, ancient-circus atmosphere. Whether it’s music, boxing or roller derby, there’s a sense of arriving at Festival Hall for a spectacle. These walls have reverberated with the screams of fans since John Wren built them in 1915. Formerly called West Melbourne Stadium, Festival Hall was a boxing and wrestling venue known as “the house of stoush”, with riots occasionally spilling out onto the street. In 1956 it was the Olympics venue for gymnastics and wrestling. There’s a quality of light specific to this venue that floods the audience at every show I’ve seen; mysteriously, it generates emotion without reserve. \

setting. Whether you’re singing along at Carols by Candlelight, busting a move at the Summadayze festival or transported by the voice of k.d. lang, being part of an audience at this venue is an unrivalled experience. It is named after Russian immigrant Simcha Baevski, who arrived in Australia in 1899, aged 20, with sparse English and no real money, and went on to become one of Australia’s most successful businessmen, Sidney Myer. Myer was as compassionate as he was ambitious – a rare combination. During the 1930s Depression, believing he had a responsibility to help the community to which he owed his success, he cut back the wages of all staff, including himself, to avoid terminating the jobs of any workers (note to CEOs who take home the biggest pay packets!). He then financed a Christmas dinner for 10,000 unemployed people at the Royal Exhibition Building – where every child received a gift. When he died (in 1934), part of his estate established the Sidney Myer Charitable Trust (now the Myer Foundation). It was in this spirit of philanthropy that the Myer Foundation funded the design and construction of the music bowl. Designed by Yuncken Freeman Architects (project architect Barry Patten), the bowl opened in 1959 – a feat of engineering. The shell needed to be acoustically correct while supporting an innovative tensile cable structure between the ground and two graceful columns – using the ground to form an auditorium. In 2001, Gregory Burgess Architects lovingly upgraded the bowl; it is indeed the gift that keeps on giving. \ boomboom@rachelberger.com

Melbourne Recital Centre

The location has been a hub for sport and entertainment for decades. The western side of Melbourne Park was known as Flinders Park – a sports destination and the site for Ashton’s Circus until 1985. As iconic as Kooyong Lawn Tennis Club is, by the 1980s it was clear Melbourne needed a more modern facility. The National Tennis Centre Trust was created to deliver a new venue. I’m still bamboozled by the magician-worthy retractable roof with its two rolling sections each spanning the court with arched trusses and moving at 1.3 metres a minute. I wonder if the roof is controlled by a remote control device? If so, I suggest it be kept in a safe place – just saying! \

Toorak \ 23 Power Avenue This large house is the perfect example of the houses that arose in Toorak during the Depression, replacing the original mansions of our prime suburb. Its style is Melbourne’s version of Georgian Revival. It contained many traditional features and the amenities of the 1930s. A massive upgrade and extensions a few years ago brought the house into the modern age, adding exceptional luxury. The ground floor contains a drawing room, dining and living rooms grouped around a grand entrance hall and handsome return staircase. Beyond this formal suite of rooms, a long, wide extension provides a family/living room. The open kitchen is augmented by a larder and butler’s pantry. This area overlooks a tennis court, lap pool and spa and gives on to a north-facing terrace. The southern section of the ground floor contains a double garage (the extensions provided a six-car basement garage) and an office. An adjoining bathroom allows for other uses for this room with its garden view. The upper floor provides five double bedrooms, each with its own bathroom. In an age of white paint, this house is unique. The trim (doors, sashes, architraves, and skirtings), originally stained, has been retained and reproduced. The extensive inbuilt joinery, even the cellar’s wine racks, is finely detailed. \ NEIL CLEREHAN

Glencairn is within the prized Gascoigne Estate – a carpeted five-bedroom or four-bedroom-plus-study Queen-Anne-era house with stunning period features. Through its leadlight front entry, two front bedrooms have leadlight windows, built-in wardrobes, painted ceiling roses and cornices, wallpaper and intricate timber-framed cast-iron open fireplaces. Nearby is a spacious study or third bedroom with access to under-stair storage. But the most impressive room in the house is the adjacent formal dining room. It shares the same elegant period stylings as the ground-floor bedrooms but on a much larger scale. Across the hall is a renovated bathroom. At the rear of the house the carpet ends and timber floors begin; the kitchen has Caesarstone benches and timber cabinetry. Opposite, the spacious family room has access to a verandah and landscaped backyard. A laundry and second bathroom are nearby. Upstairs, two more bedrooms with built-in wardrobes sit either side of a bathroom, powder room and retreat. \ JULIAN HEALEY

Set on the corner of Finch Street and Hillside Avenue, this single-level villa is more akin to a house. A high fence keeps the delightful wrap-around gardens as a secluded family space. Inside, the surprisingly large rooms have been tastefully refurbished with fresh white paint and charcoal-coloured carpets. Off the entry hall is the grand living room warmed by a marble open fireplace, while a modern white light adds a touch of informality. There’s a bay window with white blinds and curtains, and french doors that frame the park-like outdoors. The adjoining dining or lounge room has the same type of light and a window seat. The modern kitchen has white cabinetry and grey laminate benchtops. The casual meals zone opens to the garden. The main bedroom has a bay window and built-in wardrobes that arch over a doorway leading into a powder room. Next is a dual-entry bathroom with white and pink floor tiles, a pink bath and basin. The second bedroom has built-in wardrobes and an en suite with black and white floral wallpaper. \ MICHELLE OSTROW ZUKERMAN

ARMADALE \ 7 Eileen Street Eileen Street is a short, narrow dead-end street and one of the most attractive in Armadale. Developed in the 1880s, it retains much of its original housing stock. This varies between single and double-storey houses, brick and weatherboard. No. 7 is one of the grander houses in the street: free-standing, brick and two-storey. Its form is familiar: a terrace house without mates. This gives good natural light to all rooms. Its verandah is unexpectedly confined to the lower storey. The cast-iron lacework is of its time but its façade has Dutch, rather than the expected Italianate, overtones. The ground floor contains a cosy study with an unexpected marble fireplace surround and a small, formal dining room. From there on, additions have provided a neat kitchen and a generous family living area that gives on to a paved garden at the rear. The living room and courtyard provide a calm, private oasis in a crowded suburb. Upstairs, much of the original configuration remains but a bathroom – unimaginable in 1886 – and a balcony have been added. The bathroom has been cleverly planned to serve the main bedroom and two single bedrooms that face the street. The house also has that valuable asset: off-street parking. It is close to Beatty Avenue, with its chic restaurants and shops. \ NEIL CLEREHAN

mal James \ MARKET BREATHER MAY BE GOOD TIME TO TRADE UP

L

ast week we said May was traditionally a month of change. It seems May 2014 may well be continuing this trend. After the excitement pre-Easter, there’s a sense of buyer hesitation in the air. Not that there’s a complete lack of good results. The weekend before last, plenty of bidders were prepared to go out in the cold and wet to put up their hands for good properties. The auction of the grand old Victorian house at 20 Hawksburn Road, South Yarra (Jeremy Fox, RT Edgar), for instance, drew a big crowd of about 75, despite the drizzling rain. It had four bidders and eventually sold under the hammer for $4.195 million. A crowd of about 100 also braved the rain to see the seven-bedroom house at 36 Nott Street, Balwyn go to auction (Toby Parker, Hocking Stuart). It sold for $3.14 million in front of a crowd with two bidders. In Brighton East, there were four bidders for a two-bedroom one-bathroom “retro style” house at 51 Bourneville Avenue, (David Hart, Buxton), which sold under the hammer for $1.545 million. However, from our perspective, there is a sense the market has pulled back on the

enthusiasm that we saw before Easter. Numbers through open-for-inspections appear to be down on before the holiday period, and the mood of would-be buyers seems a bit more cautious. That may be because of the large amount of stock scheduled for auction for the last couple of weekends of May. Last Saturday and next are “super Saturdays”, spreading buyers more thinly across the ground. But buyers also seem to have retreated to the sidelines somewhat. It’s as if the pre-Easter market soaked up all the urgent buyers – and, with more stock and less urgency, some buyers are opting for a pause. The chatter ahead of last week’s federal budget talk didn’t help either. The talk of new taxes and cuts to services was worrying for some, and might have put the market into an “election mode”. Often, at election times, many buyers and sellers at the top end adopt a wait-and-see approach. The impact of this is always more obvious at the top end, where there are always fewer bidders than at the $1 million-plus level. At the lower end, even if demand has halved, properties that had six bidders before Easter will still have three, and the market will still produce a strong result. But higher-end properties that may have

had just three bidders pre-Easter, may now have just one or two – and that’s when price differentials occur. What should buyers do? There is a natural inclination to take a wait-and-see approach when the market takes a breather like this. Buyers can easily make this an excuse to do nothing, not bother to visit that house that looked to have such promise, or if they do bother, they’re not prepared to bid seriously and strategically at the auction. That’s an understandable approach, but it does have a few drawbacks, particularly if you really do need to buy or upgrade to a new home. When markets take a tumble, stock

tends to dry up, so you may find yourself waiting for a long time before something comes onto the market that fits your needs – especially because we are about to go into the long winter lull. That could mean you miss buying in this cycle and have to buy in the next up-cycle instead – possibly paying more than you would now. After all, another possible explanation is this may well be just the market taking another breather. It might just be another temporary landing on the staircase market we’ve seen since October 2012. Market dips as we are seeing at the moment can, in fact, be an ideal time to trade up, because the price differential is smaller than it will be in a hotter market. Our advice is, business as usual. If you come across a property in the next couple of weeks that you think is a goodie, we suggest you put your hand up for it rather than assume there will be something better and cheaper around the corner. A goodie is a goodie – whether you buy it in an up market or a down. \ Mal James Principal Buyer Advocate 0408 107 988 \ 9804 3133 We Only Buy Homes www.james.net.au MAY 21, 2014 \ The weekly review 45

History merges with modern living in this grand 1880s Hawthorn-brick house with a seamless, 10-year-old extension. In the heart of Kew, on a 920-square-metre block, the house embraces the opulence of a bygone era, from its cast-iron lacework and slate roof to high ceilings decorated with elaborate cornices and ceiling roses painted for dramatic effect. While it pays homage to the past with formal dining and living rooms and features such as open fireplaces, it is welcoming and light-filled. A large window forms a wall for the shower in the main bedroom’s en suite, letting in dappled light from a private side garden. A modern kitchen with European appliances is part of the open-plan family and meals area, where three sets of french doors lead to a verandah facing the heated pool. A fourth bedroom or study has doors to the verandah while, upstairs, the fifth bedroom – with en suite and living room – has two balconies. The house, which has a mature garden with laneway access, is within walking distance of several private schools. \ SUE HEWITT

Symmetry, french windows and an arched doorway create a grand entrance to this Nicholas Day-designed house. The latter two also offer a sneak peek of what’s to come inside. Spanning three floors, this house is characterised by generous-sized rooms, high ceilings, loads of natural light and luxury interiors. Double doors lead to an entry hall with a sweeping staircase that leads up to four large bedrooms, two with en suites. Each bedroom has panoramic outlooks over the rich hues of autumn leaves. The main bedroom also has a double-sided walk-in wardrobe and a large en suite with twin vanities and a bathtub. Downstairs, a large open fireplace and three French windows dominate the formal living room, which opens to the family living, dining and kitchen area. The kitchen is equipped with Gaggenau appliances and looks out to the beautiful Mediterranean-style pool and north-facing courtyard. On the lower level are a home theatre, office or gym, cellar, and basement parking for up to four cars. \ FRANCESCA CARTER

This extensive family house is a luxurious modern take on the classic Prairie style, made famous by architect Frank Lloyd Wright. Inside, a long hallway with glossy tiles and a red feature wall sets the scene. A study is across from the main bedroom, which has a huge walk-in wardrobe and en suite. Interconnecting living rooms face north, with ambient autumn light filtering through large windows. Nearby, a bedroom has built-in wardrobes and looks out to the tennis court. The enormous family hub has parquetry floors, and marble benchtops in the kitchen. The meals and living areas open to spacious outdoor dining through glass stacker doors. The resort-style amenities include outdoor entertainment areas, a pool and spa, in-ground trampoline, and the floodlit tennis court. The second level is zoned for kids. Four bright bedrooms have walk-in wardrobes; two have desks. Two bathrooms are designed for busy mornings, as one is just a shower room while the other has a vanity and bath. \ MICHELLE OSTROW ZUKERMAN

we love it Maybe you can’t judge a book by its cover, but you can read this late Edwardian beauty by its façade. Past a hedged front garden, under terracotta tiles and wide eaves, the striking tiled porch incorporates curves, arches, diamond leadlight windows, tuck-pointed brickwork and a timber front door framed by stained glass.

Inside, the generous foyer showcases more period features: honey-coloured timber panelling, floors, stairs and fretwork; decorative ceilings and cornices; stained-glass feature windows and three sets of double doors to large, handsome rooms. The lounge, huge dining room (once a billiard room) and main bedroom continue the theme, with leadlight, elaborate fireplaces and ornate plasterwork.

ARMADALE \ 15 Avondale Road With a name like Avondale Hall, you expect an imposing property. That’s exactly what you get at this grand red-brick double-storey house that shares its name with one of the best streets in the suburb. Set on 789 square metres, Avondale Hall has a circular driveway with two entrances at the front and a big, north-facing garden at the rear. This well-proportioned house is laden with original features, from Baltic pine floorboards to high ceilings, cornices, arches, a grand staircase and exterior bluestone windowsills. Adding to its liveability is a four-metre-wide timber verandah that allows indoor/outdoor living all year. This is where the family who has lived here for 17 years celebrates everything from Christmas to birthdays and other milestones. Large, elegant front formal rooms have generous bay windows. The wide central hall leads to a big open-plan kitchen where timber benchtops and stainless-steel appliances and a meals area create a warm and inviting atmosphere. The family room across the hall is still close to the activities in the kitchen; both areas open to the deck, garden and swimming pool. Upstairs, four large bedrooms, the main with an en suite, a smaller fifth bedroom and a family bathroom complete the picture at this impressive property. \ MARIA HARRIS
