ecently I caught up with an old friend for her birthday: a quick dinner, a flurry of conversation and then the opera (La La Boheme Boheme). It was just the two of us, all pretty low-key – it wasn’t a particularly significant milestone. But then, I realised, in a way it was. As we toasted yet another year ticking over, it occurred to me that we’ve known each other for more than three-quarters of our lives. Through heartaches and husbands, kids and careers, we’ve supported, encouraged, inspired one another, made each other laugh and been a shoulder to cry on. I believe our friendship has made each of us better people. This week’s cover story celebrates the power of friendship. It’s the story of two Kates – McLennan and McCartney – who seemed to be going nowhere until their friendship lit a creative spark that spawned the YouTube sensation The Katering Show. Now they have a TV pilot with the ABC and are courting fame in America. They say they owe it all to their friendship. ●

SARAH HARRIS MEETS COMEDY’S HOTTEST new duo

J

10 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ MAY 25, 2016

EXPECTATIONS THE HE KA KAT ERIN G SHOW

Independently, both women had been toying with the idea of a TV series built on the sad fodder of their lives … McCartney’s was at a particularly low ebb. “The animation company I was working for went under, I had just broken up with my long-term partner and was living in an apartment by myself with no furniture. It was really grim and the only job I could get was being an intern at a 3D company and I didn’t know anything about 3D. “I was living on $7 to $15 a day, including the tram ticket, and I had two degrees,” McCartney says. “It was the weekend before my 30th birthday and I looked over and the person next to me was working on a Hamish and Andy DVD. I’d worked with them previously (as a writer for the 2004 Hamish & Andy TV series) and this was their own DVD. At that point I thought, ‘This is ridiculous, what am I doing?’ ” At the time of their meeting, McLennan had also been through a traumatic relationship break-up. After blazing on to the comedy circuit to win Best Comedy and Emerging Artist award at the 2006 Melbourne Fringe for her one-woman show The Debutante Diaries, the actor who majored in theatre performance at the University of Ballarat (now Federation University) was tired of living from role to role and – with a newly minted diploma of professional writing and editing in hand – she wanted a steady gig. On paper the two Kates don’t appear natural besties. As McLennan puts it: “I wouldn’t say I was from the wrong side of the tracks by any means, but McCartney is from more of a holiday-house family, whereas we have always gone to caravan parks.” The blonde Kate, 36, was born at Mortlake in the Western District – one of two daughters of panel beater Bill “Pockets” McLennan and school teacher Gayle. The family moved to Geelong when Kate was 10 – which she jokes probably saved her

(SUPPLIED)

ust when you thought two Kates were quite enough in the kitchen, now Katy Perry wants in on the act. The singer, who made the cover of the Forbes 2015 richest list issue as the highest-paid female celebrity on the planet, is a fan of the made-in-Melbourne hit web series The Katering Show. The megastar made contact with series creators Kate McLennan and Kate McCartney, saying she would love to collaborate with them on an episode. “There was this weird moment, like ‘What? How on earth did you find us?’,” McCartney (the brunette) recalls. “It took us another 24 hours – because that’s how tired we were – to realise her name was Kate and actually it would be perfect.” The reason for the pair’s exhaustion – besides writing and filming a second series of The Katering Show (now available on ABC iView) was that both had recently become mums; McCartney gave birth to Millie in March last year, and McLennan’s daughter Dusty arrived in September. “Dusty didn’t even have a birth certificate at that time because just getting into Births, Deaths and Marriages to register [her] as a human being was a massive feat. The idea of getting on a plane and going to LA at that point was insane,” McLennan says with a laugh. It was not to be, but McLennan says they had it all worked out. “I wrote this scene with McCartney where we were looking for spare Kates. I figured Katy Perry’s a brunette, she’s got blue eyes, she could kind of slot in where the other one left off. It could still happen. We sent her an apron.” It is just one of the many extraordinary turns the two women’s lives have taken since they met during the 2011 Melbourne International Comedy Festival, unlocking the kismet of Kates. Since The Katering Show – billed as the “journey of a food intolerant (McCartney) and an intolerable foodie” (McLennan) – debuted on YouTube in February last year, it has received more than five million views, with the hilarious Thermomix episode busting two million alone. Not bad for a collaboration born of despondency. “We’d spent years at that point sort of half-arsing things. We were 30 and scared we weren’t going to do anything, and that meant we were very committed and focused and, mercifully, people started responding to it,” McCartney says. The two, who are now such close friends they finish each other’s sentences, were aware of one another’s existence for a while before they met. They shared the same agent, Creative Representation, and McLennan also followed McCartney – then working as an animator – on Twitter. “She [McLennan] was providing a lot of voices for the animation company I was working at. She did this young-girl voice [Simone in the children’s TV series Dogstar] that was really irritating because with animation they play it and play it to make sure everything syncs up. So it was eight hours a day listening to this little-girl voice. I’m surprised the first time I met her in real life I didn’t punch her in the face,” McCartney jokes.


from working in the local pie factory. But the adjustment wasn’t easy, and it forms the plank of the motivational taks talks she now gives at high schools. “It is the same with a lot of comedians,” she muses. “In order to satirise or make comic observations, you have to be on the outside looking in. There is a lot of that foundation for me, that comedy came from just being a little bit shunted to the side.” She received early encouragement from a drama teacher at another school – her own school, Belmont High, didn’t offer drama at the time. “She really encouraged me to do performing arts … I wasn’t the class clown and was quite quiet really, so no one had any confidence in me except for this one person and she knew I could do comedy. She was the one who got me writing.” For the brunette Kate, 35, there was no shortage of opportunities growing up. Born in Perth, she moved to Melbourne at age 10 (after a few years in Sydney) and attended the exclusive girls’ school, Loreto Mandeville Hall Toorak. Her father Terry is a former managing director of Myer and her mother Jenny was a children’s book editor.

decided to collaborate on a script inspired by what they saw as their own less-than-inspiring circumstances. Within three months, they had picked up the 2011 Kit Denton Disfellowship (set up in memory of Andrew Denton’s father) to develop a comedy – called Bleak – based on a woman turning 30 whose life was going to hell in a handcart, largely due to her own actions. The prize was $25,000 cash and $5000 in legal fees.

M

cCartney quit her day job and the duo shopped their concept for Bleak around the TV networks. When no one was ready to commit to making the show, they decided to make their own web version through a Pozible crowdfunding campaign. While there was no on-screen role for McCartney in Bleak, the dynamic between the two Kates in their crowdfunding appeal video seemed to strike a chord with viewers who happily stumped up the cash. Their next project, a series of short comedy pieces inspired by McCartney’s food allergies and the seemingly endless diet of TV cooking

“We were 30 & scared we weren’t going to do anything” – kate mccartney For a time McCartney, a talented artist, thought she might follow her sister – now a senior conservator at Melbourne Museum – into the conservation field, focusing on art. It was while at Melbourne University, churning out “6000 words on paint varnish”, that she became involved in comedy revues and began mixing it with the likes of Lawrence Leung, Charlie Pickering and Andrew McClelland. “I ended up doing a pilot with Charlie Pickering and Michael Chamberlin that was picked up and incorporated in this sort of mega storm called the Big Bite.” But doing sketch comedy soon soured. “There were a lot of young comedians sort of being told what was funny by the old guard. I was told by an executive that basically I was there to look pretty, that was dispiriting.” She took a break and ended up studying a masters in animation. At 24 she quit performing “because I didn’t really enjoy it as much as I enjoyed making things”. In 2006 her short The Astronomer Astronomer, about a man overtaken by the times, was screened internationally and won best 2-D Animation at the Animex International Festival of Animation and Computer Games in 2007. McCartney had written, animated and directed the whole thing, but she found animating other people’s stories less satisfying. She was looking for an out when McLennan came along. “I forced her to be my friend,” jokes McClennan. It wasn’t long before the new friends

shows, would make the most of the on-screen chemistry between the two. The Katering Show became an overnight YouTube sensation, but its creators say they made next to no money from that first series. “We didn’t even get paid. It was funded through Screen Australia, but we had to defer our wages back into it,” McLennan says. Now they joke they’re looking at a “minimum wage” thanks to the ABC’s help with the second series, which has been sold to a video on-demand service in America. “We’re also getting some new merchandise for this series, so we are hoping to sell lots of tea towels, drink bottles, stubby holders and wine holders, so I don’t have to sell my baby,” McLennan says. The ABC has also backed a pilot episode of Bleak for television. After the pilot screens ABC 1 on May 25, the two – who are represented in the US by WME, one of the biggest management companies – are off to America for talks. They have “no idea what is going to happen next”. But one thing they’re sure of: no man, woman or child will pull the Kates asunder. “Since we met great stuff has happened to us and I think every so often you just have to sit back and reflect on why that is,” McLennan says. “Clearly we have a really good working relationship, but very early on we realised we had to protect and nurture that relationship. “Besides, I can’t think of anyone else who would lend me their breast pump.” ● sharris@theweeklyreview.com.au

Ask the wine guy A Korean barbecue restaurant Q recently opened near our house and is BYO for wine. What wine goes best with Korean food?

A

Sauvignon blanc is usually a tricky customer when it comes to food and wine matching but it’s right at home with Korean food, especially kimchi. Its intensity stands up to all that garlic and chilli, while sav’s herbaceous characters hit the right note with the cabbage, too. Meaty barbecue dishes are an easy match – fruit-driven reds are a perfect match for the meat and the chilli that invariably accompanies it. ● GOT A QUESTION EMAIL \

THE VINE W H AT T O D R I N K W I T H B E N T H O M A S

Scion Durif 2013 (Rutherglen) $42; 13.2% It’s rare to see a durif of restraint, but that’s exactly what this is. It makes for a refreshing change. Earthy berry, cherry and spice aromas set a gentle tone. The flavours are those of a cool-climate shiraz – blueberries, cherries, violets and spice – but there’s a wall of tongue-grabbing, sandy tannins that shout “I’m not shiraz” but something else entirely. ● Enjoy with \ Bulgogi brisket

Margan Tempranillo Graciano Shiraz 2014 (Hunter Valley) $40; 14% Part of Margan’s Breaking Ground range, the three grapes in this – tempranillo, shiraz and graciano – are planted together in a single vineyard block. Spice, cola, cherry, blackcurrant and earth aromas and lengthy flavours are intriguing and delicious. Its structure is super and the concentration of flavour really impressive. ● Enjoy with \ Bossam pork

Amato Vino Tempranillo 2014 (Margaret River) $28; 13.8% They’re doing edgy things at Amato – this has 20 per cent whole bunch fermentation – and their wines are in top form. Layered and perfumed aromas of cherries and plums are given a bright lift by 18 months in French oak. There’s texture, mouth perfume and a delightful brightness to its violet, blackberry and cola flavours. The structure is spot-on, too. ● Enjoy with \ Kalbi pork ribs

S AV S T A R Wirra Wirra Hiding Champion Sauvignon Blanc 2015 (Adelaide Hills) $24; 12.5% There were some terrific savs made in the Adelaide Hills last year and here’s one of them. Lovely dusty vegetal characters, plus green bean and tropical notes make for a heady bouquet. Crisp tropical and citrus flavours are layered and complex for a sav blanc. Enjoy with \ Kimchi pancakes

THE VERDICT

’m notorious for heading straight to the specials list of any eating establishment, so when said list contains an item as special as the Special Scallop & Crab Fried Rice at uber-urban mod-Chinese eatery Lee Ho Fook, I’ve just gotta tell you about it. Which, according to chef Victor Liong, is why it’s been a bit of a permanent “special” on the menu since he and the team relocated to their new city laneway locale last year. It’s the sort of dish that gets people talking. Incredibly satisfying and perfect for a winter’s night, it’s as much rich crab-meat soup as it is porridge-y fried rice. Team with some chilli-laced chicken crackling, scallops with burnt soy butter, some spring onion and buffalo mozzarella Chinizza (which you may remember from my “must-eats” list) and some crunchy fish-flavoured eggplant, syrupy with red vinegar caramel. It hits so many spots that you’re left wondering if you’ve got room for dessert. But of course you do. I’d recommend the zesty house-made yuzu marshmallows and aromatic jasmine tea-infused creme brulee. ● aliceinframes@theweeklyreview.com.au

BRUNCH \ BAR IDDA on a Sunday. Brings me back home with honest Sicilian food in the heart of Lygon L Street.

LOVING \ My 34-centimetre Le Creuset cast-iron casserole pot. I bought it on sale in Sydney, carted it home on the plane and wasn’t even sure we’d have anywhere to store it, but this behemoth of a vessel has made broth-simmering a cinch (not to mention the turkey it roasted for Christmas lunch). ●

THE INGREDIENT Three Rivers saltbush lambs graze on the Peat family’s 2600-hectare property, Bultarra, near Echuca. Their diet of “Old Man Saltbush”, prized by indigenous communities for its flavour, is a story of ingenuity amid the land’s saline conditions. The prized Dohne lambs, supplemented with wheat and minerals, develop tender, sweet meat with an even fat distribution.

THE PLACE

THE READ

Breweries are growing in Melbourne’s south-east, and Bayside’s Bad Shepherd is one to watch. Local husband and wife team Dereck and Diti Hales have pursued their passion for craft beer and American barbecue-style cooking, opening their rustic brewery and diner late last year, with a signature American Pale Ale.

She calls them lamb, apricot and fennel seed lollipops – we’d probably call them kofta, or meatballs on skewers. Regardless, this and many recipes in Sabrina Ghayour’s Middle Eastern cooking bible Sirocco will please a crowd. Bread boats are an ideal ways to start the day, while chickenberry rice will nourish the family for dinner. Classics, comfort food and original ideas fill this collection of 100 recipes. Sabrina features on the BBC’s Good Food Show Show.

THE GADGET

Savoury miso scones, delicate finger sandwiches and bacon and egg tartlets begin the high tea offering at Om Nom, the ground floor restaurant and dessert bar at Adelphi Hotel, from noon to 4pm on weekend afternoons. Accompanied by a glass of French sparkling, of course. Sweet treats such as praline choux, lime and raspberry tart and hazelnut chocolate cake, presented on elegant tiered stands, round off the experience, designed by Om Nom’s French-trained executive pastry chef Christy Tania and head chef Darren Jones. There’s a selection of premium teas to finish. The intimate space has seating for just 40 people, though, so bookings are recommended. $65pp.

I’ll admit there were some frayed tempers in the test kitchen the first couple of times we used the latest automatic pasta machine by Philips. And some of those moments were caused by operator error. But once we got things sorted, boy did this little beauty turn out some fabulous spaghetti, fettucine, noodles and penne pasta. Features include an auto weighing function for the liquid required, a handy timer, a trimming device, and tools that take the fuss out of cleaning up.

wat c h \ D O U B L E I n D E M N I T Y show armed with some very black-and-white expectations. But while MTC had a big hit with last year’s Hollywood pastiche North By Northwest, this new production is trying to avoid playing up to its cinematic roots. “We’re still trying to find the tone, because we all know what those film-noir caricatures were. I think that style of acting has dated, but the theatre does support that. You’re allowed to be a little bigger.” While the play is very much tied to its Depression-era setting (with the desperate nature of the times going some way to justify the central murder), Claire says there’s been an attempt to exorcise outdated ideas about sex and race. At its heart, Double Indemnity is an edge-of-your-seat thriller. “You very much feel like you get on a roller coaster and there’s no stopping. It just speeds up.” ● mbartlett@theweeklyreview.com.au (SUPPLIED)

on’t think you know how this ends. Billy Wilder’s film noir classic Double Indemnity sees life insurance agent Walter Neff seduced into murder by Barbara Stanwyck’s Phyllis – a crime for which she pays the ultimate price. Back in the 1940s, Hollywood’s Hays Code ensured femmes fatales always had to be seen to get their comeuppance, to preserve “healthy” family values. In 2016, all bets are off. “The ending is different,” confides Claire van der Boom, who plays Phyllis in the new MTC adaptation. “We’re going back to the James M. Cain novel and he publicly said he didn’t like noir, he wrote love stories.” Given playwright Tom Holloway had rights only to the novel, Claire says audiences should expect few nods to the film version. At the same time, she’s aware audiences will come to the

FILM ALICE THROUGH THE LOOKING GLASS Given the money Disney made from the first Alice, a sequel was inevitable, even if it’s clear there’s not really anywhere to go with its characters. Alice (Mia Wasikowska) returns to Underland to save the Mad Hatter (Johnny Depp doing a creepy fusion of Michael Jackson and Pennywise the Clown). While the CG is colourful, it all looks like a rather samey and uninspired kids’ computer game – more cosy than strange, with no real sense of jeopardy.

STAYING IN Avalanche by Julia Leigh \ Penguin, $24.99 penguin.com.au

In this fast, frank and tender memoir, novelist and director Julia Leigh takes us through the high hopes and disappointments of IVF. At times, Avalanche reads like a compelling confessional. Julia takes herself apart with honesty, wisdom and a surprising distance – given the book was written soon after she had ceased treatment. For all her trials, the book is never heavy going. It’s a story of love in all its flavours, captured with wit, warmth and humanity. ● WATCH

Chances are, you already know whether you’re going to like Quentin Tarantino’s latest Western. Here he’s playing to the fans, with the expected ultra-violence, machismo and uneasy racial politics all dialled up to 11. The premise is simple – a coach of dodgy characters find themselves stranded at a roadhouse with even dodgier characters. It’s not as surprising or punchy as Django Unchained, but QT’s knack for razor-sharp dialogue remains strong. ● MB ONLINE \ Myke’s interview with Quentin Tarantino

Renowned fashion designer Lisa Barron is vice-president of Treasure Chest, which aims to improve the lives of women with breast cancer. The charity will hold its 10th Men with Breast Intentions Ball on May 27. “Fashion is my life but I have always felt the need to give my time and effort for others,” Lisa says. She has lived and worked in Armadale for more than a decade and loves the heart and soul of its small businesses. Where do you go for a great cup of coffee? Coffee and a bear claw are a regular breakfast grab at Phillippa’s Bakery. The friendly familiarity and the consistent quality is the reason for a constant stream of customers. For a fantastic lunch? Mossgreen Tearooms is a great girls’ lunch place in the old Sotheby’s building. It has a tranquil and creative atmosphere. For some me time? I’ll get some hair time at Toni & Guy. I love

the crew in this salon – they are talented, welcoming and hard-working. To finish off a look for a special event, I always go into Mecca Cosmetica. I am in awe of the amazing business Jo Horgan has created. For a head-turning outfit? The Lisa Barron store, of course. My customers are very much the focus of my design. They are women who like an original garment, appreciate fabric quality and the limited-edition, Australian-made ethos. For an interesting bottle of wine? Armadale Cellars has a great selection from lesser-known wineries and a wonderful champagne range. I also can’t talk about wine without mentioning my favourite Robert Oatley chardonnay – delicious . ● JEMIMAH CLEGG Men with Breast Intentions Ball May 27, 7pm.

to our bodies to get the stretch right, and also massages our necks and shoulders at certain intervals, which is just the icing on the uber-relaxing cake. I feel the weight of the world lifting off my shoulders as they’re massaged, and float back to work refreshed.

The reality We get a group together from The Weekly Review and head to one of our conference rooms. Wallis has set up the room with yoga mats and other equipment, but the transformation into a relaxing studio doesn’t stop there. Candles, essential oils and ambient music all play their part in setting the scene and taking our minds away from work – if only for an hour. Wallis says yin yoga is a slower form of yoga that focuses on holding positions for longer, giving the body time to stretch into each pose. Wallis guides us into poses, some of which involve straps to hold our stretches and foam blocks for our heads.

The pain factor My legs are feeling it a little bit the next day – but that just means I gained a bit more flexibility.

“By the glass is always changing, so it gives people a chance to try before they buy.” – Owner Lyndon Kubis

Toorak Cellars is a liquor shop and bar that opened in the 1940s as a bottle shop. It has a selection of interesting wines that can be enjoyed at the bar or bought to take home. Who’s behind the counter? Lyndon Kubis started working in the bottle shop about 11 years ago under the previous owners. Five years later he took over and decided to open a bar to complement the takeaway shop. “There was a bit of a need for it, I think, around then. There was nowhere to really get a proper glass of wine,” Lyndon says. He and his staff can point customers towards a great bottle of wine that suits their taste. What’s in store? Lyndon loves wines that taste of where they’re from: “Wines that are farmed organically or biodynamically, with no additions.” The shop stocks a lot of wines from the Adelaide Hills, Burgundy in France and some special champagne from smaller organic producers. Who’s buying? “Sometimes we’ve got 18-to-20-year-olds, there’s 70-year-olds, there’s people in suits, people in tracksuits – literally just everyone,” Lyndon says. ● JEMIMAH CLEGG

“i realised i wanted to make a difference to children’s lives”

(SCOTT McNAUGHTON)

orowa Anglican Girls’ School principal Helen Carmody is passionate about making a difference in the lives of children through education. She first saw the impact schooling has on the lives of young children, and the community they live in, when she taught in the Northern Territory while a student at the University of Canberra. “I was fortunate to be awarded a Commonwealth Teaching Scholarship before I finished year 12, so I commenced my course as soon as I finished school at St Clare’s College in Canberra,” Helen says. “The scholarship required students to take up a placement in the Northern Territory in our final year of study and I went to a school in Wadeye, which is a tribal Aboriginal Catholic community situated on the western edge of the Daly River Reserve in the Northern Territory. “That experience showed me that education could open doors and create new possibilities. “I realised I wanted to make a difference to children’s lives but I also saw that education is a way forward for whole communities and our society.” While Helen’s experiences at university inspired her career path, it was in secondary school that she honed the public speaking skills she has used throughout her career. “From an early age I entered poetry and public speaking eisteddfods,” Helen says. “In my senior years I was selected in state-level debating teams and had some great experiences debating in a television competition – we also debated against a team of inmates from Parramatta jail. “I still remember the topic was: ‘It is better to be wanted for murder than not wanted at all’,” she says. Helen wasn’t a particularly sporty student and says debating offered her an alternative. “Debating offered me the chance to be a part of a team, participate in competition and represent my school doing something I really loved,” she says. While not sporty at school, Helen has taken up long-distance running as a teacher and principal – often travelling to compete in marathons. “I’ve completed six marathons in the past six years and enjoy combining travel with running events,” Helen says. “I’ve often combined running and fund-raising, where my interests are in supporting cancer research and in raising funds for underprivileged girls to participate in sport.” Helen started as principal at Korowa in January, moving from Toorak College, where she had also been principal. She says it was Korowa’s school motto, in part, which drew her to the new role. “I was especially attracted to the Korowa school motto: Palma Non Sine Pulvere, which translates to ‘no reward without effort’,” she says. “Korowa also has a strong commitment to excellence in all its dimensions – academic, sporting, cultural, the arts and social service through commitment to the curriculum and extracurricular activities – [so that attracted me also]. “I value aiming for personal bests and certainly try to reach that goal in my own life, so Korowa is a great fit for me.” ● melissa.heagney@theweeklyreview.com.au

3 things I have learnt 1 2 3

Teaching is a social experience. It is as much about relationships as it is about skills and knowledge. Working with young people has taught me how important it is to see the world from their perspective. There is always more to learn as an educator. I started my career as an early childhood teacher, then studied and worked with computers and later moved into organisational change and school improvement before becoming a school leader.

SISTER ACT historic convent cloisters are poised for new life, writes LIZ MCLACHLAN

(SUPPLIED)

S

iena College has launched a campaign to restore its 1939 Byzantine-revival convent and cloisters as the school’s gateway and official entrance. Built by the Riversdale Road-based Dominican Order and the Camberwell community to educate their daughters, the multidomed convent and cloisters have always been the spiritual heart and a famous image of the college. However, as the Catholic girls’ college grew from its opening enrolment of 15 students in 1940 to about 750 today, additional facilities necessarily eclipsed many of the original building’s functions. The $250,000 restoration fund-raising goal is the fourth and final pillar of the Butterfly philanthropy campaign. The campaign sought to add facilities and amenities to the school’s major building program, centring on the design and construction of the new St Catherine’s Centre, which opened last year. The convent and cloisters project will include offices for the principal, registrar and director responsible for the college’s Mission and Catholic identity. The four-pillared Butterfly Campaign is the first initiative of the Siena Philanthropic Society, formed to support major building projects. It is fronted by Siena parent Tony Jones and philanthropist and past student Susan Alberti. The campaign has raised nearly $1 million to upgrade the St Catherine’s Centre lecture theatre into a performing arts auditorium, transform the school’s library

CONVENT \ 1939

“siena college is the only melbourne school with cloisters” – gaynor robson-garth, principal into a leading student resource centre and create a garden for student use in a previously underutilised corner. Thanks to the campaign, the school’s $8.5 million St Catherine’s Centre opened as part of the school’s 75th anniversary celebrations last year with a double-storey professional-quality performing arts auditorium. Designed by Williams Ross Architects to enhance student learning and well-being, the centre includes contemporary learning spaces, a year 12 centre, a visual communications and design lab, art gallery and student services and administration. It was recently nominated for architecture and building awards. College principal Gaynor Robson-Garth

says the convent and cloisters have always been the most treasured part of the school. “One of the greatest gifts girls take from the school is an enduring sense of connection to the Siena community. The convent and cloisters are central to their connection and it’s natural to restore them as the school’s gateway and face to the world. “Siena College is the only Melbourne school with cloisters and they create a remarkably peaceful and reflective space for the girls, which we all value highly.” To highlight that connection, the restoration of the cloisters will include an alumnae wall and all past, present and future students can request their names be included. The Siena College convent and cloisters

were designed in the 1930s by Italian architect and engineer Hamleto Agabiti and were blessed and opened by Archbishop Daniel Mannix in December 1939 before the school welcomed its first students in February 1940. Hamleto designed the convent, chapel and cloisters in the Byzantine style, reminiscent of Italian and Greek churches, and the building was deemed highly significant in a 1991 Camberwell conservation study. Arched cloisters surround an internal garden quadrangle and lead to the main doors of the circular domed chapel. Based on the Greek cross, the chapel has a large central dome with four smaller domes. The Dominican Order founded St Dominic’s parish on Riversdale Road in Camberwell in 1924, opening its parish school and first church the following year. In 1937, the parish opened the current church, with Siena College opening in 1940. Sister Frances Caine joined the Siena Community in 1941 and was enrolled as the 21st student of the Siena Convent School. She recalls the dedication of the teaching sisters, the friendly atmosphere and companionship. “I remember coming to the Siena Convent with my father for the blessing and opening ceremony by Archbishop Mannix.” After completing her schooling, Frances became a Dominican sister, working with hearing-impaired children. She was awarded the Order of Australia in 2002 for her service to the children. ● lmclachlan@theweeklyreview.com.au MAY 25, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 27

f you imagined soprano Marina Prior living in some kind of baroque set complete with brocade curtains, think again. The first lady of Australian musical theatre is just as likely to be making the school run from the Balwyn North home she shares with actor Grant Piro and five children, aged from 12 to 20. Since moving into the handsome two-storey home three years ago, the couple have had little time to renovate, between kids and respective performance demands. “We did the kids’ bathroom, the kitchen, but haven’t got any further. We haven’t even changed the old-lady curtains yet,” Marina says with a laugh. “I don’t have a preferred style, but my husband wanted this downstairs lounge to look like an English country hotel. Sort of old and cosy. We have the fire and sometimes he invites me out for a drink at the lounge bar.” ● SARAH HARRIS sharris@theweeklyreview.com.au

We used to have a golden retriever that would do whatever you wanted – pose for a photo paws crossed, whatever. Now I have these two maniacs India (white) and Miss Adelaide. We have a cat as well who is very disdainful.

This kitschy cat includes a decoupage image of me. My mum, Pat, who passed away a couple of years ago, was obsessed with cats. When I found this, it was a bit of an in joke between us.

CARVING CHAIR My great-grandparents had these matching grandpa (pictured) and grandma chairs made. My parents had them reupholstered in material as close as they could get to the original. They mean a great deal to me. They are quite formal and when I was a little girl I used to think they were thrones.

I found this Thai temple carving in an art gallery in Chiang Mai and just thought it was so gorgeous. I actually bought two and carried them back in my luggage, which was a bit of a headache really. But it was the first time I had been to Thailand and really wanted to bring something back with me.

THE STYLIST M I R A N D A TAY G O E S O N T H E I N S I D E

’70S-INSPIRED

I

nterior designer Chelsea Hing worked with architect Richard Kerr on a restrained palette for an elegant Melbourne home. Chelsea explored the idea of a visually interesting and timeless interior, using a limited mix of contrasting light and dark natural materials and minimal colour. The lounge room references the playful vibe of the ’70s with a circular couch. We asked Chelsea Hing what top five elements she considered for the look:

The big idea \ In this case it was the conversation pit where our clients could entertain their friends and family and feel “grounded” in an otherwise fairly tough architectural shell. Lighting \ We avoided loading up the ceiling with recessed downlights and instead went for lighting tracks fitted with classic Artemide Tolomeo (lights) for atmosphere. Admittedly, they’re designed in the ’80s but have a ’70s feel. Texture \ The rug was a modern take on the ’70s shag with a silk plush feel. The polished plaster wall and ceiling also add to the more organic feel of the space. Colour \ A shot of colour lifts it out of the purely serious. Mood \ Lightweight layers and a luxe mix of linen, velvet and silk give this interior some timeless glamour. ● mtay@theweeklyreview.com.au

THE ART OF THE CRAFT 224 KOO KOOY YONG RO YONG ROA OAD, TOORAK, 3142

G

lyn is not just one of Melbourne’s grandest mansions. It is also one of Victoria’s most significant homes, an arts and crafts classic that represents the pinnacle of this distinctive style. Architect Rodney Alsop designed Glyn in 1908 as a statement of wealth and privilege for the financier, banker and politician, Sir Edward Miller. The house was built in the arts and crafts style with reinforced concrete walls, and finished in a distinctive render with white quartz pebbles pushed into the surface. Multiple gables and the steep roof slopes are clad in terracotta shingles. Glyn is generally regarded as one of the finest examples of the arts and crafts movement in Victoria. Rodney Alsop was a founding member of the Arts and Crafts Society of Victoria and led the way in introducing the style. He also designed the built-in furniture, carved woodwork, stained glass and beaten metal ornamentation. A recurring motif of eucalypt branches, leaves and gumnuts is a distinctly Australian touch. It’s there in the stained-glass panels in the front door, the entrance hall, the main hall and the upstairs gallery. A large square skylight with eucalyptus leaves in the stained glass lights a vast void. The extensive use of timber creates a breathtaking interior and is a testament to the architect, artists and craftsmen who built this unique house. Every room has distinctive timber features, including different fireplaces and built-in cabinetry. The entry foyer is sensational: a baronial space with timber panels to shoulder height, a timber-beamed ceiling, dramatic timber fireplace and timber-framed windows. The formal dining, living, sitting and billiards rooms off the foyer have extensive timber details, from built-in shelving to carved woodwork and ceiling beams. The formal dining room, with a five-bay window, raises the luxe element with silk moire taffeta used as “wallpaper” above the timber panelling. Eucalyptus leaves and gumnuts feature on the brass doorplates. A contemporary renovation created a sparkling hub on

the northern side of the house. It includes a family room, meals area and open-plan kitchen. Banks of windows with leadlight highlights, white cabinets, marble benchtops and an island bench beneath a high turret ceiling in the kitchen are a terrific way to merge the old and new. Two Miele ovens, a Miele cooktop and a butler’s pantry complete the set-up. The family area opens to the north-facing terrace. Still on ground level, the timber staircase with square posts and timber uprights is a dramatic change from the curls and flourishes of Victorian staircases. It is an easy climb to the first floor, which contains no fewer than five king-sized bedrooms. The main bedroom, with its arched bay window, elegant white marble en suite and walk-in wardrobe/dressing room, is larger than the living rooms of many houses. A second section with its own staircase (once the maid’s stairs) includes five studies or smaller bedrooms, an en suite, gym and storage rooms. Another timber staircase leads to the second floor with a retreat, bedroom, dressing room and en suite. Contemporary additions are hydronic heating, air-conditioning, two guest powder rooms, a large laundry, video intercom, security system and tennis court. The tennis court and swimming pool have change rooms to rival an upmarket tennis club. Rodney Alsop did not just design houses. He was involved in their decoration, their built-in furniture and often made the beaten metal ornamentation with his own hands. He envisaged his houses as all-encompassing designs and works of art. He achieved this with Glyn. Sir Edward Miller lived at Glyn until he died in 1932. His son, Everard Studley Miller, also lived in the house until his death in 1956, so Glyn is important for its links to this prominent Melbourne family. With views to the Dandenongs, and its location near schools, shops and transport, Glyn is both a magnificent family home and a slice of Australian architectural history. ● MARIA HARRIS property@theweeklyreview.com.au

TOORAK \ 3/589A TOORAK RO ROA OAD This is the rear residence in one of the garden courts that builder Joe Fudge developed in the 1970s. They were noted for their luxurious finishes and dainty detailing. This one, refurbished a few years ago, is a prime example. A generous foyer divides living areas from the bedroom wing and opens to one of three north-facing terraces. An 11-metre-long sitting and dining room has a gas log fire at one end and a formal dining setting at the other. These glamorous spaces are united by their imported oak parquetry flooring that extends into the kitchen. The kitchen cabinetry is white 2pac and the appliances are integrated. A compact laundry has direct access to a drying area. The kitchen and dining room open to a north-west dining terrace with in-built barbecue. The carpeted bedroom wing offers many accommodation options. The main suite receives north and east light and has a fitted dressing room and marble-lined bathroom with a shower, two basins, toilet and bidet. A second bathroom with bath and shower serves two. A fourth room fitted out as a study/office could be a further bedroom. The house is at the head of an attractive, landscaped driveway. Its double garage, air-conditioning, security and vacuum system complete the picture of a single-storey residence that combines luxury and security in the heart of Toorak. ● NEIL CLEREHAN

What looks like a neat two-storey house from the street is far more intriguing on the inside. Built in 1928, it has many of the hallmarks of Melbourne’s period homes, including polished timber floors, open fireplaces and cornices. It also shows off less common architectural nuances, such as a floor plan unafraid to eschew 90-degree angles. Inside, there are two bedrooms, a study and a formal lounge downstairs, as well as a central bathroom. One bedroom has an open fireplace, while there’s gas heating in the lounge. Next, the hall steps down to a meals area, living room and lightwell. The kitchen is here, too, with timber benches and stainless-steel appliances. A door leads to the back garden. Upstairs, three more bedrooms and a retreat have carpet underfoot. One bedroom has a built-in wardrobe and another a private balcony, while the main boasts a spa en suite. All of this is in addition to a granny flat with its own entry on the western side of the house. It comprises a big bedroom and living space, a kitchen and bathroom. ● JULIAN HEALEY

MONT ALBERT \ 2 GAWLER COURT This large Federation house has an abundance of character, texture, colour and pattern. Built in 1907, it has been renovated and modified over the years and now offers a series of large spaces, all with their own quirks. A wide L-shaped verandah leads to the entrance, which has all the lovely spectacle you might expect. A pressed metal ceiling, Baltic floorboards and leadlight windows all display the house’s rich architectural heritage. To the left is a dining room with a window seat. It could be a fifth bedroom if required. Next door is a living area with a dramatic mahogany ceiling and an open fireplace. With its olive green walls, this room has a warm winter feel. The main bedroom is a private oasis. While its large proportions and generous window seat will impress many, it’s the dressing room and en suite that take luxury to another level. Glass mosaic tiles, slick joinery and a strong palette of primary colours make this area a feast for the eyes. The rear family living area and kitchen offer a more relaxed, country-style aesthetic. A dining area with built-in seating leads through to the rear and side gardens. Close to schools and Deakin University, parks and shopping villages, this large family house will appeal to those who appreciate character and detail. ● FRANCESCA CARTER

CAMBERWELL \ 22 KINTORE STREET Walking the streets of Tara Estate is a wonderful experience at this time of year. Lined with liquidambar trees in glorious autumn shades, the estate also boasts wonderful examples of Victorian and Edwardian architecture. This place is no exception. Set well back from the street, the handsome house is framed by a tessellated-tile verandah, landscaped gardens and a fountain. Leadlight glass edges the front door, providing a luminous contrast to the red brickwork of the facade. Inside is a combination of period and progressive. A wide, arched hallway opens to rooms floored in honey-coloured timber. The first room on the right is a cracker. It has an open fireplace, decorative ceiling rose and cornices, with three tall windows looking out to the front garden. At the rear, in the open-plan extension, the high ceilings of the original part of the house have been retained. This helps to create a sense of space. The kitchen is to the right. It has white joinery, a large island bench and lots of storage. Light floods in through north-facing windows. The southern wall is lined with windows and doors that offer views of the Tuscan-inspired garden. With a deck, waterfall pool, spa, and big lawn, it’s easy to see why the vendors here have chosen to have many holidays at home. ● FRANCESCA CARTER

Standing tall on a deep block near Wattle Park, this 1920s house is ye olde Camberwell at its most comfortable. The house has three bedrooms, while the studio has two plus a new bathroom. The space afforded by a block of nearly 700 square metres means there’s enormous, north-facing lawn at the rear, encompassing a deck for outdoor dining. The wide hall, with its timber panels and bracketed rails, makes a striking impression. Turn right through mullioned glass doors to the living room, which has leadlight windows and Baltic pine floorboards, then right again to the adjoining dining room, which has a brick open fireplace and bookshelves. In the extended rear, the meals area opens to the garden and offers a picturesque place to hang out. The white laminate kitchen has a Baumatic 900-millimetre gas range and a Dishlex dishwasher. Of the bedrooms, the pale-blue main is at the front and has leadlight windows, a walk-in wardrobe and a door to the main bathroom. There’s a powder room in the laundry. ● ALISON BARCLAY

Its address gives an early clue to this property’s value, even before taking the elegant Italianate house and two-storey accommodation into account. The corner site of about 546 square metres, with a walled courtyard facing west and its south boundary along Wattletree Road, is in

blue-chip suburbia. The tram and cafes are at the front door and within minutes you can be at schools or Monash University, dining in High Street, shopping at Malvern Central, on the train to the city or stretching your legs at Caulfield Park.

This renovated Victorian worker’s cottage is an attractive reminder of how well modern design can work behind a period facade. While the inside has been expertly updated, the exterior is classic: weatherboards, a corrugated roof, and iron lace on the front verandah. In typical single-fronted style, a long hallway extends all the way to the rear. At the front, the main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and an en suite. Further along the hall, two more bedrooms have built-in wardrobes. Polished timber floors feature throughout. At the end of the hall, the house opens to a contemporary space. A stylish kitchen equipped with stainless-steel appliances takes up one corner of the open-plan living and dining room. Bright, open and airy, this room owes those qualities to sliding doors that extend out to a rear deck and high ceilings created by the mezzanine above, which would be ideal as a home office or retreat. Below the mezzanine is a bathroom with freestanding bath and a powder room. ● JULIAN HEALEY
