The crickets are also available a la carte, and more insects will be added to the menu next year – Billy says they’re the nutrient-rich culinary wave of the future. ● » Jethro Canteen, 385-389 Burnley Street, Richmond, 9421 2900

ne of the most welcome recent cultural O trends has been the blurring of the lines between high art and pop culture. It used to

be that opera, ballet and the like were meant for good citizens of a certain age, with money in the bank and, perhaps, a holiday house in Sorrento. Rock bands and street art were strictly for the skinny-jeans crowd. Now those old lines are vanishing as our most august arts institutions are teaming up with the new guard to create experiences everyone can enjoy. The NGV is drawing all kinds of crowds to its Friday night live music sessions. Sydney Dance Company teamed up with songstress Sarah Blasko and the MSO is collaborating with everyone from KISS to Nick Cave. The latest to shake off the shackles is Missy Higgins, who will perform with the MSO at the Plenery later this month. It seems a very grown-up kind of gig for the one-time pop prodigy but suddenly Missy herself is all grown up. Read about her new life as a mum inside. ●

GROWING UP

“Sometimes motherhood feels like too much responsibility & I don’t know what I’ve gotten myself into”

8 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ NOVEMBER 23, 2016


M

issy Higgins has lost count of the days she’s spent on the road during her career. Travelling from city to city, carrying out sound check after sound check, performing, and then returning to a series of hotel rooms. Earlier this year, during an 11-date tour of the US, things were a little different for the Melbourne singer/songwriter thanks to two new members of her entourage. Missy was joined by her husband, playwright Dan Lee, and their son, Samuel Arrow Lee, who will be two in January. “Sammy was great to travel with and it was so nice to wake up in weird hotel rooms in a strange city on the other side of the world and have my family with me. Touring can be lonely, especially a solo tour when it’s just me on stage,” Missy says, smiling. During her New York dates, the family stayed at an Airbnb that was a mini-farm with goats, cats, a heap of rabbits and a resident skunk. “Sammy fed the goats every morning and ran around nude with the animals in the backyard. “He’s a very strong-willed, independent

show. You don’t want to feel too comfortable before going into something new and this is on a scale I’ve never really done before. “My songs sound pretty big with my band but they sound even bigger when you’re playing with a 60-piece orchestra. It’s always been in the back of my mind to do something like this because it shows my music to people in its most dramatic form and in its most cinematic way. “When I write these stories and songs at home they’re so small and intimate and personal and then I get into a studio and record them with a band and they get bigger. When you add strings they somehow elevate the emotion of a song and my music seems to lend itself quite well to string arrangements, perhaps because the music can be quite romantic and heartfelt.” Since her first EP, Missy Higgins, entered the ARIA Singles Chart Top 50 in August 2004, Melissa “Missy” Morrison Higgins has enjoyed a steady string of hits and awards. Her first album, The Sound of White, was also released in 2004, and that year she was nominated for five ARIA Music Awards.

“Dan and I go to Broome once or twice a year – it’s our spiritual home. We’d like to live there but none of our family is there. We have friends there and a lot of beautiful memories. It’s a very special place.” After finding peace and coming to terms with her celebrity, Missy returned to the studio and to music. Her most recent album, OZ, was released in late 2014. She also recently released a benefit single called Oh Canada to draw attention to the plight of Syrian refugees. By this time, Missy’s life had taken an unexpected but very welcome turn – she’d fallen in love. In 2013, on a trip to Broome to attend a friend’s wedding, she was introduced to Dan who, as well as being a playwright, also fronts a band. “He was my friend’s housemate in Broome and Dan’s band were playing at the wedding. They’re a lot of fun. They dress up in full glam ’80s rock gear and Dan is the front man in leopard skin tights, corsets and a wedding veil who jumps around and does the splits,” Missy says, laughing. “Dan asked if I wanted to sing a couple of songs with them at the wedding and I said

of self and individuality but ultimately heading together in the same direction. The tattoos show we are still our own people but we are travelling together in the same direction. And Sammy is our little arrow we are shooting into the future.” Their son is named after the Irish playwright and poet, Samuel Beckett, of whom Dan is a huge fan. The couple have slipped into parenthood seemingly quite effortlessly, dividing up their working week so they can share parenting duties. “We have a very modern family going on,” says Missy. She is writing material and working out the direction of her next album, which she plans to begin recording in the next few months. “We each write a few days a week and look after Sammy a few days a week. Luckily Dan’s work is very portable too, so he can tour with me and help with Sammy. I’m not sure I’d be getting as much done if I married someone with a nine-to-five job. “It’s been surprisingly possible to do most of the things I want to do. It’s just a matter of working within the time frames I have, rather than leisurely waiting around for the

little guy with a really happy temperament. He’s totally his own person. I can take him to a park and he goes and goes and doesn’t look back for an hour. Sometimes I wish he was a little clingier.” Missy performed in key US cities including New York, Boston, San Francisco, Seattle and Nashville before setting up camp in Los Angeles, where she wrote some new material for her next album. Now back home in Australia, she’s teaming up with the country’s leading symphony orchestras for a select number of shows. She plays The Plenary in Melbourne on November 27, and the tour will also take in Sydney, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide. She experimented with the new concert format in Tasmania at Skyfields in late 2015, when she was invited to perform with the Tasmanian Symphony Orchestra. “I agreed to it on a whim because it sounded like a beautiful idea – a big concert on the edge of the mountainside – and it was an incredible experience. After that I thought it would be a shame not to take the arrangements around Australia,” she says. “I’m excited and nervous, but that’s usually a pretty good concoction for a good LISTEN

The following year she was nominated for seven ARIAs and won five of them – there are press photographs of a very young and excited Missy leaping into the arms of Baywatch actor David Hasselhoff, who presented the awards. In 2010 she made her acting debut, appearing in the Australian film Bran Nue Dae with Ernie Dingo, Geoffrey Rush and Jessica Mauboy.

S

he was fresh out of high school when she began to garner attention from the music industry and fans, and admits it was initially overwhelming. Rumours about her sexuality also surfaced in the media. Missy dealt with the spotlight and curiosity about her private life with dignity and honesty, preferring to let her music speak for her. She also spent time in Broome – where she would later meet her husband. “I think people find Broome when they need to find Broome. I found it just after my first album. I was just out of school, being recognised everywhere I went and it was freaking me out a little. I needed to find somewhere that grounded me and Broome was the place,” she says quietly.

yes. Over the course of rehearsals for that performance, we fell in love.” The couple married at Easter this year at Collingwood Children’s Farm. “Marriage was never really a big thing for me. I always wanted a family, but some girls grow up dreaming of a white wedding and that was never important to me. But for some reason when I met Dan I found myself wanting to get married – the symbolic process of combining your lives seemed romantic,” she says. “We’ve both been through quite a lot in our lives that somehow brought us to a similar place. We seem to have learned similar lessons along the way and one of those is the importance of honesty, openness and vulnerability. We were at a point in our lives when we couldn’t be bothered with games or bullshit anymore. “We just wanted someone we could be real with. And that’s ultimately what we found in each other.” Instead of engagement rings, the couple got matching arrow tattoos etched on their feet. “We have this metaphor about parallel arrows and what a perfect relationship looks like – two people maintaining their sense

muse to come. It works quite well for me – I needed a bit of discipline in my life.” So how has marriage and motherhood changed the 33-year-old? “I am more sensitive. I’m quite hyper-aware of the world around me, which is kind of counterintuitive. I thought it would become more about just the family unit but somehow I seem to be affected by the state of the world a lot more than I used to be now,” she says. “I feel I’ve brought this vulnerable little thing into the world who depends on me and I have this responsibility to justify the fact I did bring him into this world, and to make sure it’s a safe and good world for him to be a part of. Sometimes that feels like too much responsibility and I don’t know what I’ve gotten myself into. Sometimes I feel he is the epitome of hope. He’s the reason why I am doing most of the things I do today. He is the thing that’s propelling me to me to try and make the world a better place and that can only be a good thing. “I’m happy. Every day is different now and it’s a new way of living and working – but I am really happy.” ● smarinos@theweeklyreview.com.au

“I always persisted … and here I am, still”

Look out for … Harry will compete in the Australian Open 2017 Wildcard Play-off at Melbourne Park, December 12-18.

What’s the buzz At only 20 Harry Bourchier is one of Australia’s brightest young tennis talents. Ranked 528 in the world, Harry has already represented Australia at the Junior Davis Cup and has been a hitting partner for tennis greats Roger Federer, Rafael Nadal and Novak Djokovic. In the beginning ... Harry’s family sparked his interest in tennis during his childhood in Tasmania. “My brother was pretty good in my eyes and, being a lot younger, I always looked up to him,” Harry says. “By [the age of] two or three I could pick up a racket.” After attending The Friends’ School in Hobart, Harry moved to Melbourne in year 9 to train at tennis’ National Academy. “My parents said I was a bit young but I always persisted that I wanted to go and here I am, still.” The big break This year Harry joined forces with Nick Kyrgios’ former coach Simon Rea, who has been fundamental in helping him rise through the ranks. “He’s pretty strict and he keeps me honest with everything I do,”

Harry says. “Tennis is a pretty independent sport and you’ve got to create a team with your coach and physio. The more people around you, the easier it is.” Harry says his first big break came during a recent trip to China, for the ATP Futures tournaments. After making the quarter-final in the singles, he went on to win the doubles event. Where to now: With summer fast approaching, the 2017 Australian Open is the next major tournament on Harry’s radar. “I’ll play the wildcard play-offs in December and, if my form is good, I’ll be a contender in one of those.” The best part about success “Travelling the world is an amazing part. Every week you’re in a new place with new people. There’s not many jobs where you change location every week of the year.” If I could do it all again “I wouldn’t change much so far. People have always told me it’s about the journey and you’ve got to go through the process and enjoy it as you go.” ● JANUARY JONES jjones@theweeklyreview.com.au

Ask the wine guy Q Which grapes make the best rosé? The grapes that go into rosé don’t A always make it to the front label and what’s in the bottle can be a mystery. Any red grapes can make a rosé, but it’s all about savoury refreshment in modern-day rosé and there are a few I reckon make the best. Grenache, shiraz, cinsault and mourvedre are the major contributors to Provencal rosé – the benchmark when it comes to savoury rosé. Pinot noir and the Italian grapes sangiovese and nebbiolo are also worth keeping an eye out for. ● GOT A QUESTION EMAIL \

Brown Brothers 18 Eighty Nine Dry Rosé 2016 (Victoria) $19; 13%

Way before the rosé revolution, Dominique Portet was one of a handful of people making good rosé. This is a blend of merlot, shiraz and cabernet. Cherry, raspberry and citrus aromas lead to dry, textural rosé with plenty of character, refreshment and drinkability. There’s a lovely pithy edge to the finish. ●

A cloudy, natural wine – meaning minimal-intervention winemaking – this is perfumed, complex and leaves you under no illusions that it’s pinot noir. Smoky, earthy cherry and strawberry aromas and flavours hit the mouth with a slippery texture. ●

This blend of five grapes, including cabernet sauvignon and malbec, smells like a summer berry salad, with macerated strawberry, raspberry and blueberry aromas. It’s textural and dry, with bright berry, cherry flavours. At the richer end of the rosé scale, but it’s dry and will stand up to gutsy dishes. ●

ou can usually tell what a chef’s cooking is going to be like based on his hobby of choice (and they’ve all got one). Cyclists tend to be finicky and precise, surfers offer a natural, organic flow. Then there are DJs, like Florent “Flo” Gerardin. The way he moves across the pass of his starkly open kitchen at uberchic Oter – twisting dials and upping the decibels of flavour, dropping dishes on the bar (nab a spot here if you can) like phat beats, pumping the bass until your brain feels like it’s going to explode with deliciousness – puts him squarely on the podium as one of Melbourne’s most exciting young chefs. There’s a raw energy to the menu at Oter – “French food, but not as you know it” – more Toulouse-Lautrec than Claude Monet. Expect plenty of offal, but the unexpected kind, like veal heart sweetbreads or wagyu tongue with mushroom and native pepper. Vegetables are vibrant and flavoursome, enhanced by fresh cheeses, nuts and herbs. A bountiful tart-board is omnipresent, taunting us all the way through savouries, yielding fine pastry and luscious fillings like fresh strawberries and cream or Valrhona chocolate.

It’s been just over two years since Shannon Martinez and Mo Wyse opened Smith & Daughters, their vegan restaurant on Brunswick Street in Fitzroy. They quickly employed 40 staff and were serving 400 covers a night. Less than a year later, they opened Smith & Deli, a vegan convenience store. So why not a write a book in 2016? In Smith & Daughters: A Cookbook (That Happens to be Vegan), Shannon and Mo showcase the bold, Spanish-influenced flavours and textures that have made their businesses a success. The book’s seven chapters include big plates, small plates, salads, sweets, dressings and drinks that have been reinvented for meat lovers and vegetarians alike. ● MORE ABOUT THIS BOOK

THE INGREDIENT It’s the time of year for salads, cold spreads and celebrations. Woodbridge Smokehouse selects ocean trout and Atlantic salmon from the pristine waters of Tasmania’s coast and hand smokes it using timber from the property’s apple orchard. The silken-textured, subtle-flavoured result has helped it collect a swag of gold medals and a growing fan base. The company was established on an organic apple orchard in the picturesque town of Woodbridge, which overlooks the northern end of Bruny Island. Each online order is picked, sliced and carefully packed to order. Choose from hot and cold-smoked portions. We’re serving the port-infused whole fillets smoked with oak chips from old port barrels at our next gathering. ● MORE ABOUT THIS PRODUCT

THE SIP Try “gin refashioned”, the West Winds Gin take on a classic old-fashioned cocktail. Muddle West Winds The Sabre gin with lemon peel, lemon bitters, castor sugar and ice. Or make a “dirty martini” with The Cutlass, dry vermouth and some top-notch olives. West Winds Gin, created by a trio of Victorians using distilled triple-filtered rainwater from Margaret River in Western Australia and Australian botanicals, has received international accolades. The latest is the Chairman’s Trophy for best gin at the 2016 New York Ultimate Spirits Challenge. The showcase trio The Sabre (classic gin, 12 spices), The Broadside (navy strength) and The Cutlass (lemon myrtle, cinnamon myrtle and Australian bush tomato) are now in bold ocean-inspired bottles. ● MORE ABOUT THIS GIN » thewestwindsgin.com

THE TREAT

The flavour and texture of Pana Chocolate’s new pineapple and ginger bars will stay with me long-time. Seventy per cent raw cacao with chewy bites of pineapple and whirls of ginger essential oil, it tastes like a tropical cocktail. The fig and wild orange bar is pretty memorable too. Founded in Australia by chocolate expert Pana Barbounis in 2012, Pana Chocolate is now sold in 25 countries. Their raw dessert bar on Church Street in Richmond serves up raw cakes, cookies, seasonal drinks and handmade chocolates. All chocolates are raw, organic and vegan-friendly, created using minimal heat to retain antioxidants, amino acids, vitamins and minerals. The gorgeous gift boxes are made from earth-friendly packaging. ● MORE ABOUT THIS SWEET TREAT » panachocolate.com

t’s been a difficult few years for Archie Roach. Alongside health issues, including a battle with cancer, the legendary Australian singer has endured the loss of his long-term partner and fellow performer, Ruby Hunter. So it’s surprising that his new album Let Love Rule isn’t a dark rumination on life’s hardships, but rather an optimistic embrace of its joys. As its title suggests, this is a record about love – and everything that word means. “Love of country, of culture, of people, the Australian people as a whole,” Archie says. “I wanted to be singing songs of inclusiveness.” Given recent international events, Archie’s timing couldn’t be better. The global headlines are full of shock, hate and hurt. To paraphrase Burt Bacharach, there’s a very real

sense that what the world needs now is a little more love. “That’s what inspired some of the songs, for sure,” Archie says. “I’ve always tried to think about something better existing. Something better than what we see and hear. We seem to forget all the positive stuff that’s happening

in the world and this country. We need some more good stories, because they’re there. We just don’t see them.” This month, Archie will be spreading the love in support of American singer Rodriguez’s latest Australian tour The Return of Sugar Man. It isn’t hard to see a common

thread between the two artists. Both have enjoyed a late-career revival, both write songs that tackle social issues with startling honesty and both have found an audience in distant lands. Despite being largely forgotten at home, Rodriguez has always met a warm reception here, while Archie is freshly returned from a triumphant tour through western Europe. Archie says that playing to a French-speaking crowd reminded him that heartfelt storytelling can not only transcend borders but also languages. “A lot of people came up to have my albums signed,” says Archie. “It’s amazing. Even though people have little English, they appreciate the songs. Some people said they weren’t sure what I was singing about, but they understood the sentiment.” ● mbartlett@theweeklyreview.com.au » Rodriguez: Return of the Sugar Man, Plenary, November 25 & 26, $101.71-$132.29, frontiertouring.com » Let Love Rule is out now through Liberation. archieroach.com.au ONLINE \ Isabelle Lane catches up with Rodriguez before his Melbourne tour

TLC Sassy American R&B act TLC are the most-successful female group of all time, having sold 65 million albums in a 25-year career. They first conquered the charts back in 1994 with CrazySexyCool, a Grammy Award-winning record that spawned the ubiquitous singles Waterfalls and Creep. The follow-up album, featuring No Scrubs, also did great business. Now they’re back with a new, final album and a fast-selling Australian tour. ■ Palais Theatre, November 23, $89.90-$219.90, palaistheatre.net.au GIG

THE FOUNDER Travelling milkshakeFILM machine salesman Ray Kroc (Michael Keaton) is down on his luck. When Californian burger shack McDonald’s saves his neck by placing an order for six machines, he goes to see what all the fuss is about and stumbles on the birth of fast food. This deliciously black biopic feels timely in its portrait of a ruthless businessman who, unfettered by decency, trashes a great institution in order to become its president. Keaton twinkles as the wicked Ray. ■ Opens November 24, Rated M, 115 minutes, thefounderfilm.com

AT LAST AND LET’S GET IT ON Two soul greats are celebrated CONCERT in these paired performances from Melbourne’s own soul legend, Vika Bull.

Thankfully, the music is triumphant. Featured hits include Etta’s Something’s Got A Hold On Me and I’d Rather Go Blind and Marvin’s Sexual Healing and What’s Going On. ■ Athenaeum Theatre, November 23 & 24, $49-$79, room8.com.au

The super-charged cult musical premiered in 1999 in Los Angeles before transferring to Off-Broadway, inspiring the 2005 movie re-make, which received an Emmy for outstanding music and lyrics. The Melbourne production is directed by Stephen Wheat (Avenue Q, Pippin) with musical direction by David Wisken (CROSSxROADS, Avenue Q) and choreography  by Yvette Lee (In The In The Heights, Moonshadow Heights, Moonshadow).

WIN!

Ah Well, Nobody’s Perfect by Molly Meldrum (with Jeff Jenkins), $34.99. allenandunwin.com

This collection of anecdotes and “untold stories” works as a companion piece to Molly’s 2014 memoir. It’s a ragtag batch of interviews, brushes with celebrities, behind-the-scenes gossip and reflections on the Quambatook boy’s four great loves – cricket, the St Kilda footy team, the Melbourne Storm and, of course, rock’n’roll. Molly’s sometimes tall-ish tales of meeting The Beatles, Bowie and Beyonce are balanced against accounts from friends and industry greats. ●

The comic gifts of Jane Austen might be often overlooked (Pride Pride & Prejudice is basically the archetypal rom-com), but American director Whit Stillman has sharpened one of Austen’s early, long-unpublished works into a delightful comedy of manners. Stillman has been in the wilderness since a run of biting society dramas in the ’90s, but hasn’t lost his poison-pen touch. ● MB ONLINE \ Watch the trailer

Where do you go to buy the perfect gift? I like to shop based on values and try to purchase ethically when I can. The Rotary Club of Kew’s Fair Trade Shop has a few awesome surprises. For a great cup of coffee? Now & Then. First, it’s next door to work, but they also do a great long black and the staff are lovely. For a fantastic meal? The Kew Nursery & Cafe is a great hidden gem. The food is incredible and the staff

there are amazing. You can also pick up some gorgeous plants too. For a sneaky takeaway? I’m loving dumplings at the moment, and the Chinese Jin Dumpling House never disappoints. For some me-time? You can’t go past Endota Spa. They help replenish you, and are always so professional. You can’t help but leave refreshed. To catch up with friends? The Skinny Dog is my favourite local to catch up with friends or colleagues for a Friday afternoon drink. To get some exercise? Alexandra Gardens is where I go to get some fresh air and exercise. There is a lovely path that leads you throughout the beautiful, well-maintained gardens. ● JEMIMAH CLEGG

RETAIL THERAPY RYDER \ AR M ADALE

SALES PITCH “It’s a very fun, clean, casual look,” Penny Brown, designer.

Our pick

Ryder is a women’s clothing shop that focuses on denim, pretty prints and vintage-inspired styles. The store feels like a cool, chic beach house, with white walls, timber features and interesting art.

The very versatile Miller dress can be worn two ways and is perfect for summer. $229

Who’s behind the counter? Penny Brown started the brand three years ago as an online store and eventually started to wholesale her designs. “It just started to go really well – we had a great response from everyone,” Penny says. That response was the catalyst for opening the bricks-and-mortar shop two years ago to showcase the brand and its unique style. “We’re very Australiana-inspired; there are a lot of vintage themes that come through in the prints and in the detailing,” Penny says. Penny’s sister Georgie manages the shop and also helps design some of the collection. What’s in store? Ryder’s cool and simple clothing is made from beautiful, natural fabrics. “There are a lot of soft-washed denims that come through in every collection and everything’s designed to pair with that,” Penny says. They also make accessories, including shoes, socks and hats.

“We also sell jewellery, mostly from Melbourne-based brands,” Georgie says. Who’s buying? Women looking for quality clothing without a huge price tag. “There’s definitely a strong local customer base in quite a big variety of age groups,” Georgie says. “There’s a very loyal following in Armadale and that’s expanding bit by bit,” Penny says. ● JEMIMAH CLEGG

s the warmer weather approaches, it’s not just the changes of season that we should take notice of. It’s also any changes to our skin. Epworth Richmond director of dermatology Professor Rod Sinclair says it’s important for everyone to keep an eye on any moles, blemishes or sun damage. Rod, who has worked in the area of skin cancer for 25 years, says any changes in these things could mean treatment is needed.

within it

Professor Sinclair (pictured), was one of the academics involved in the largest study of skin cancer in Australia. The results of the study showed seven out of every eight new cancers being treated in Australia were of the skin. “Each year, one million Australians are being treated for skin cancer,” Rod says. “With a population of 24 million [in Australia], that’s obviously a large part of the population affected.” As well as wearing sunscreen when the UV rating is high, health professionals like Rod recommend having a regular skin check – particularly for adults 40 and older. He says any new blemish on the skin, including a patch, spot, lump, nodule or other mark that has been there for six weeks and hasn’t healed, should be checked by a dermatologist: “Someone who knows what they’re looking for”. In his work with Epworth Richmond, Rod sees thousands of patients every year with a range of skin conditions. They include the different types of skin cancer – among them melanomas, and basal cell carcinomas and squamous cell carcinomas, which are not considered as deadly as melanomas. He says it’s important to catch skin cancer early. If caught in the early stages, it is treatable. If the cancer is not caught early, melanoma, in particular, can produce secondary cancers with cells

aguar, the one-time tweedy British luxury car Jfirst-ever company, has gone all populist by introducing its SUV, the F-Pace.

otoring’s big-ticket big-cat Jaguar has emerged M in its new form as an SUV with an entitled sense of feline superiority.

RON’S VERDICT Jaguar goes where the market is with its first SUV. ●

The F-Pace deserves an elevated status now that it’s magnified into a larger beast; the family will be pleased that everyone can fit in comfort in the spacious cabin, and stash all their requisite sports gear and luggage (the boot holds more than 500 litres of stuff, which puts me in mind of a Barossa Valley driving holiday). The interior, without the Jag walnut trim of old, looks somewhat generic, but the modern styling offers a display of well-organised, intuitive instruments. I especially like the twist-knob to select transmission and the clarity of the touch screen. Inside, the F-Pace is ergonomic and comfortable. Outside it’s big and quite beautiful, particularly in that swollen bonnet. Overall, it’s a powerful drive with a quality feel. ●

JACQUI’S VERDICT

C O N S E N S U S \ A WELCOME COMPETITOR TO LUXO SUV FIELD MORE \ jaguar.com.au

Purrfectly happy with this big cat. ●

(ISTOCK)

Closely related under the aluminium skin to Jaguar’s other new winner, the XE medium sedan, the F-Pace adds modern family car essentials: a spacious wagon body, raised stance, flexible load space and all-wheel drive for holiday fun. Officially, it is a medium SUV but a big one, slotting between, for example, the BMW X3 and X5. For families of up to five, it is an ideal size. The F-Pace offers Jaguar’s supple-leather style, legendary comfort and sportiness in a sought-after urban SUV package. Our test car, the F-Pace 30d S, was endowed with the big, relatively quiet but gutsy 3.0-litre diesel V6, which we think is the pick of the engines. Push pedal, whoosh. Aided by an array of traction, handling and safety wizardry, the F-Pace is Jaguar’s modern sports car. ●

PRECISION & DETAIL

S

ophistication and precision define this recently completed modernist house on an elevated site overlooking Como Park in South Yarra. Every window frames a carefully considered outlook, capturing longer parkland views and focusing on landscaped features. Multi-award-winning Stonehaven Homes designed and built the 680-square-metre residence to an exacting brief, working closely with clients who, having enjoyed their first Stonehaven home, were keen to repeat their experience in a second new build. Stonehaven architect Roman Franetic says the design provides vistas as well as privacy for all living areas and bedrooms. “Our clients wanted a modernist design – a house where the detail in every aspect and each vista was precise – there had to be something happening wherever you turned. “There are meticulous shadow lines and recessed pelmets so deep that curtains or blinds appear to continue upward. The design shows that modernist style doesn’t need to be cold and formal – here it’s about precision and detail,” Roman says. The basement level includes a four-car garage, a gym or music room that opens to a subterranean courtyard with stairs to ground level, a wine cellar, bathroom and two 10,000-litre water tanks. A central lift whisks residents to the ground level, where a clever interplay of glass and solid walls devises an elegant series of living and working spaces. Designed in two parts with private and social working spaces, the kitchen’s social end opens to dining and living with terraces beyond. Offset from the rectangular dining and living area is a large library that shares views on to a reflection pond with the living area. 28 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ NOVEMBER 23, 2016

Terraces at the house’s front and rear create entertainment spaces for different times of the day. Upstairs, the main suite has a balcony and park views and a capacious naturally-lit dressing room that opens via a secret door to an en suite bathroom. A large sitting room, second bedroom and two bathrooms complete the top level. An advanced automation system remotely controls every aspect of the house’s operation and there’s a large secure electronic locker at the front gate for deliveries. “A lot of the house’s features are invisible – this is sophisticated modern architecture where everything is integrated to create an intelligent and incredibly liveable home,” Roman says. ● LIZ McLACHLAN lmclachlan@theweeklyreview.com.au

here’s nothing ordinary about interior designer Kerry Phelan’s East Melbourne home. For a start, it’s an apartment in a gorgeous 1880s building a mere drop punt from the MCG. You could hold a party in most of the rooms, with their soaring ceilings, polished floorboards and lofty proportions. Kerry, formerly a director of Hecker Phelan & Guthrie, established Kerry Phelan Design Office with her partner Stephen Javens, about seven years ago. Working with a team of 20, they are responsible for some of Melbourne’s best commercial and residential interiors and architecture. The couple moved to the apartment last November. It is like a gallery and full of designer furniture, art, paintings, sculpture, ceramics and glassware. In the bedroom, a snowy white room with soft linen curtains, the padded bed, unusually, has its back to the door rather than pushed against a wall. At first glance it looks like a sofa, but somehow it works. Walls are painted in Dulux Vivid White, echoing the rest of the apartment; the paint is used in many of the company’s projects. ● ANN PILMER editorial@theweeklyreview.com.au

SHIRO K U R A M ATA C H A I R I wonder why more people haven’t appreciated these. They’ve flown under the radar. I nearly bought one in 2004 and finally got one last December. Itt was designed about 1984. I adore it. It’s bloody brilliant and has a wonderful sculptural element.

CANDLESTICKS I found these bronze bird candleholders on Instagram nstagram in a vintage store in Paris. We bought them last year and had them shipped over. They’re by Pierre Casenove and were made at the Fondica foundry in Paris in 1980.

We’ve had this for about nine years and I think it’s gorgeous. Photographer Polly Borland was lucky to get the shot and it was a genius idea to have the Marimekko fabric backdrop. I found it in the city gallery, the Murray White Room. NOVEMBER 23, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 29

ach year the Eat Drink Design Awards celebrate design excellence and innovation in the Australasian hospitality industry. This year’s awards, announced on November 8, confirmed Melbourne’s status as the design capital of Australia, with local venues taking out the lion’s share of top awards: Best Cafe Design (Higher Ground); Best Retail Design (Lune Croissanterie); Best Restaurant Design (Dinner by Heston) and Il Bacaro, designed by Chris Connell, admitted to the Hall of Fame. We asked four Melbourne designers shortlisted in the Best Restaurant Design category to tell us about their work. ●

Renowned British chef Heston Blumenthal wanted his latest Melbourne restaurant to take its inspiration from classic British dishes dating from Tudor times through to the grand Victorian era. Jeffrey Copolov, interior design director of Bates Smart, led the project to transform Heston’s first restaurant at the site, Fat Duck, into the new venue. In six weeks, with some careful planning and choreography, the new restaurant emerged. “There was a significant reveal – the restaurant almost doubled in size and there were spaces that had not been seen before. We reset the lighting because each table is fixed and the lighting is like a stage set. The kitchen now forms a major focal point of the restaurant,” Jeffrey says. Other focal points are two large artworks that inform the colour and decor. The photos were commissioned by Heston and inspired by the Dutch masters. They appear as still-life oil paintings but are photos of real food. White ceramic jelly moulds from Heston’s London restaurant have become wall lighting. The ceiling features a series of fins inspired by Elizabethan pattern-making interwoven with downlights. A private dining room was established with sweeping views over the Yarra and the city and the entrance was refurbished. Heston developed an aroma of damp moss, wood smoke and leather for the restaurant. The furniture was reupholstered in rich colours and textures. “The interior had to be rich and fulfilling so the materials are sumptuous, like the food. We wanted to touch all the senses,” Jeffrey says. “The chairs are velvet and leather, the tables are teak that almost glows from the inside and catches the light and the wall panelling has a beautiful lacquer.” ●

Hawker Hall \ 98 Chapel Street, Windsor

Opposite South Yarra station, this venue is at the base of an apartment complex. “The owners wanted to create a space that acts as a neighbourhood institution for residents,” says Anja de Spa, architect at Molecule. “There are a lot of new apartments in the area and they wanted a restaurant that was welcoming from breakfast through to late evening.” Anja was inspired by the train station and the concept of using robust and hard-wearing materials. The restaurant features exposed concrete walls and exposed air-conditioning and services. Anja describes the palette as “dark and moody”. “The client was passionate about introducing a timber herringbone floor and the other materials layer textures on that,” she says. “We have terrazzo on the bar and kitchen counters, an earthy grey natural mineral paint on the walls and black leather on the banquette seating.” The large, steel-framed gantry that doubles as a storage and display unit is an eye-catching element. Anja also installed a fiery still of a video work by artist, Sean Rodwell. “It’s a dramatic piece and as the tables are laid out on a linear axis, the art terminates the view down that axis,” says Anja. ●

A food and beer hall inspired by Asian markets, Hawker Hall is housed in a former Victorian stable. “It was almost derelict,” says architect Craig Tan, who worked on the project with Bergman & Co and Samantha Eades Design. The false ceilings were removed to reveal Oregon trusses and a skylight. The large space is broken into zones by the bar and the exposed kitchen, while the mezzanine level is covered in a chevron bamboo screen. “When you peer upwards it’s like looking through the shuttered facades of homes,” Craig says. The bamboo melds with parts of the ceiling that are covered in pegboard and the red brick walls are covered with a muted stone wash. ●

On the top floor of Emporium, Tetsujin houses a contemporary Japanese barbecue, a sushi train and a bar. The fit-out was designed by Architects EAT and the identity design is by Clara Marcus of Principle Design. “Our brief was to create something vibrant and to communicate the personality of the restaurant and its different areas,” Clara says. “We settled on the concept of order versus chaos. The sushi train is bright, white, shiny and fresh with soft salmon and grey colours. But as diners move into the barbecue area, it is quite smoky and sultry and we made the patterning more frenzied and repetitive. We amped up the energy with large graphics on the walls and the colours include deeper reds and burnt oranges to intensify the feeling of heat.” ●

COLLINS ARCH Address \ 447 Collins Street, Melbourne Developer \ Cbus Property Building, interior & landscape design \ Woods Bagot, SHoP Architects, Oculus (SCOTT McNAUGHTON)

he design of any major apartment, hotel or retail development involves many considerations. There’s the buildings’ overall aesthetics, how they fit into the surrounding landscapes and their functionality. All are undoubtedly important. But there’s also what happens on ground level, especially in the heart of a city such as Melbourne. This is something the designers of Collins Arch, which includes a team of architects from New-York’s SHoP Architects and Melbourne’s Woods Bagot, have taken into close consideration throughout their collaborative design process. Collins Arch is a two-tower design with 34 levels and an eight-level skybridge connecting the two buildings on the former National Mutual office site. The buildings will have one, two and three-bedroom apartments, a five-star hotel, shops and offices, and offer a new and unique addition to Collins Street. As well as the amenities inside the building itself, new open spaces are being created for residents and visitors – and for the public. Collins Arch is being constructed over a full CBD block bordered by Collins, William

and Market streets and Flinders Lane. The open space takes different forms. SHoP Architects associate Nicole Allen says six distinct public areas are being created as part of the development. “Each one is a different typology of public space that can be found throughout Melbourne and other great cities,” Nicole says. “There’s a laneway, an arcade, a colonnade

» collinsarch.com

and an amphitheatre – each one with a unique amenity, intimacy and kind of occupation. “We’ve pulled inspiration from the way Melburnians use public spaces, like the steps of the State Library and the colonnade at the GPO, to create this diverse network of public space,” she says. “Collins Arch is really a city within a

city and the ground plane is very much a manifestation of that. “All the different amenities – hotel, residential, commercial and retail – express on the ground plane and activate it in different ways. “The public space is there not only to support these amenities, but to create a new urban living room for the CBD – a place where everyone can benefit from the amazing diversity of activity that Collins Arch is bringing to this site.” Kate Frear, principal of architecture firm Woods Bagot, says it’s important that major developments like Collins Arch provide a place for the community to meet within the building and outside on ground level. “It’s very important for major developments within the city to provide open space for the public to enjoy,” Kate says. “The ground plane should contribute to the activation and the overall liveability of the city. “Certainly, providing open spaces for guests and residents is important to ensure the very best amenity is offered to those who are making this place their home.” ● MELISSA HEAGNEY melissa.heagney@theweeklyreview.com.au NOVEMBER 23, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 33

“We also have included lots of storage, which is important to have in any home.” Luminary’s prices, which start at $870,000 for a two-bedroom, two-bathroom apartment, make them a definite option for people who might not otherwise be able to afford to live in the area. While the apartment prices and layout are proving to be a big drawcard, Luminary’s location, in Church Street, Hawthorn is also attracting buyers.

rench classical style is so influential that even the most contemporary brands reference its shapes and proportions, says Domo managing director Francesco Novembre. The enduring style – highlighted in Domo’s new Grange x Greg Natale range – can be worked into modern spaces as an accent or feature piece to add character or glamour. The collaboration between the 115-year-old furniture brand and the multi-award-winning Australian designer has created an exciting new collection.

a beautiful setting, then accessorise with contemporary elements for an eclectic ambiance, says Francesco.

Here are Francesco and Greg’s top tips for modernising French classic style:

INJECT SOME COLOUR

M I X YO U R L I N E S The classic silhouettes of Louis chairs work beautifully in a modern setting if you balance them with other pieces, says Greg. Choose a square-backed armchair or linear dining chairs to reflect modern lines or offset curves of rounder chairs with angular pieces.

KEEP IT ECLECTIC

Rather than recreate a period interior in its entirety, establish the interior tone with

R E W OR K YO U R W O O D S The warm brown hues of cherry, walnut and oak can keep the room tied to the past. Refresh the wooden finish of your furniture by painting it or applying a wash – try a sleek black lacquer or crisp matt white for a sharper effect, says Greg.

Instead of the traditional neutral taupes and greys used on French feature chairs, bring in a bold burst of colour, Greg says. A vivid blue looks great in a black and white scheme. Use pops of the colour in accessories to create a cohesive look.

BRING IN GLAMOUR Classic French style is elegant and adaptable, says Francesco. Try incorporating soft and elegant velvets and silky gloss finishes along with brass detailing for a contemporary take.  ● mtay@theweeklyreview.com.au

RIGHT ON CUE 6 BELMONT AVENUE, KEW, 3101

O

ne slice of inner-suburban Kew was never going to be enough for the grand plans of this all-encompassing executive property. It wasn’t only because the owners wanted rooms on a grand scale, nor simply for lavish entertainment areas, nor due to the list of extras added to the usual rooms of a family home. It came down to having a blended family of seven children and wanting to give them space to play, study, sleep, have friends over and disappear for quiet times and be walking distance from Melbourne’s richest cluster of elite schools. Crucial to the plan were self-contained quarters for a live-in nanny; accommodation that can otherwise be used for guests, in-laws, adult children saving for their own home, as a teen retreat, a serious home office or an income-earner with Airbnb or student rental. Instead of scaling down plans to fit the site, the owners annexed land in an agreement with neighbours. The result is a 905-square-metre block (on one title) that faces tree-lined Belmont Avenue and has private access from a lane for its rear unit – which is, actually, a separate two-storey pockettownhouse with two bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchenette, living room and double garage. The priority was to maximise use of the north aspect, so the footprint of the house is along the south boundary and its main living area embraces the sun-catching stretch of outdoors where the tiled pool, terrace, covered outdoor kitchen and lawn are placed. This is the venue for summer living and entertainment – it’s not hard to imagine kids at play and adults mingling, relaxing and sharing food in these sophisticated, linked spaces. The outdoors connects seamlessly to the open-plan meals area, family room and a showpiece kitchen that’s chic and

minimalist, freed of preparation dramas and clean-up chaos by a large hidden butler’s pantry. At the front of the house, a vast shelf extending out from the roof covers the path to the oversized pivot front door. Even with a creeper clothing its facade, the building has contemporary brutalist form. Its monochromatic rendered square-line bulk is the antithesis of the immediate neighbourhood’s Hawthornbrick Victorian villas built on compact sites, lingering evidence of the 1880s property boom. This bold project’s approach brings suburban family living to the cutting edge. Start with the unseen: alarm, video intercom, Sonos sound system, home automation, closed-circuit TV security, irrigation, sub-floor heating and underground water tank. Setting a cool, urbane mood are polished concrete floors, tiles and carpet in shades of grey, eye-catching pendants and imported wallpapers. A 650-bottle temperature-controlled wine room is showcased with a glass wall and an internal window to the study/library. There’s also a safe room, which hopefully won’t ever be needed for its dual use as a panic room. Upstairs at the back of the house, children’s bedrooms with walk-in wardrobes are zoned with a rumpus room, fitted study, walk-in linen cupboard and bathroom. The main bedroom at the front has a luxury en suite with walk-in shower and freestanding tub, plus mega-storage in bespoke wardrobes. At the end of the block, nature provides a dramatic exclamation mark in the form of a magnificent ancient gum tree, but the modern punctuation is more subtle – a string of dots and dashes laser-cut into the remote-controlled driveway gates are Morse code for the address of this remarkable residence. ● JACQUI HAMMERTON property@theweeklyreview.com.au

SOUTH YARRA 4km from Bourke Street

Romance hangs in the late spring air at this cul-de-sac property, which is hugged by boundary walls clad in greenery and offering the street a smart facade with parterre garden and an elegant water feature. There seems little to do throughout summer but move in and laze around the self-cleaning solar and gas-heated pool, entertain in an immaculate garden, and stroll to Como Park, the Yarra or Chapel Street, pausing at any of Toorak Road’s countless cafes.

The 360-square-metre block, wide and private for a single-fronted Edwardian, has a path along its south side and a shared driveway with a neighbourly parking agreement on the north side. A facelift this year gave the house fresh paintwork and a new kitchen. But a buyer looking to the longterm – perhaps aiming for the vendors’ quarter-century stay – will find much more to love. The house has large rooms, particularly the wallpapered front lounge room with leadlight windows, a fireplace, box-bay window with built-in

Double brick construction ensures there’s peace and quiet in this Edwardian house. Extended and updated, it’s a roomy affair with a family-friendly air. The central lounge has an open fireplace. The open-plan hub has polished floorboards, exposed ceiling beams and glass doors to a deck with covered and uncovered areas. Upstairs, you’ll find another large living space in the form of a rumpus room that’s open to the fourth bedroom and adjoins a balcony. Back on ground level, three big bedrooms include the main with built-in wardrobes and another with an open fireplace. The first bathroom has a spa bath and twin basins; the second includes the laundry, and there’s also a powder room. In the backyard are a barbecue, a shed, workshop and trees. There’s a supermarket metres away, and schools and trams are in easy reach. ● KAY KAY KEIGHERY

A large terrace puts outdoor entertaining on the family calendar at this address. The extended Californian bungalow offers a blend of period allure and modernisation. The lounge room off the foyer has charcoal carpet, a candelabra chandelier and a bay window to the front garden. Double doors link it with the dining room. Bringing up the rear of ground level, the open-plan hub dedicates the lion’s share of space to a neat kitchen. Glass doors open from the family area to the backyard. Out here, the combination of covered and open terraces and a garden traversed by pebbled paths promises north-facing sunshine and privacy. All of the bedrooms have en suites, with one downstairs also including a walk-in wardrobe. The main bedroom, with walk-in wardrobe, chic spa-bath en suite and a backyard-view balcony is the icing on the cake. ● KAY KAY KEIGHERY

TOORAK \ 42 HEYINGTON PLACE This stately manor presented in a stately manner – the final work of the late celebrated interior designer Stuart Rattle – shows beauty and architectural significance in keeping with its prestigious neighbourhood, as noted by its Heritage Victoria listing. The c1926 Cedric Ballantyne-designed house combines hallmarks of the arts and crafts era with interwar English cottage features. There are panels of shingles, a tapered chimney and chunky timber forks framing the dining alcove, the main bedroom’s en suite and the porch. Inside, exposed beams, coffered ceilings, open fireplaces and bespoke joinery underscore the stately effect. The sympathetic makeover by Stuart Rattle Interiors five years ago introduced oak floorboards laid on an angle, feature wallpaper, new bathrooms and a kitchen with Carrara marble benchtops, Lacanche cooker and butler’s pantry. The building is centred on its square-ish 1500-squaremetre site opposite St Catherine’s School and near Heyington station and the Yarra. Left of the large foyer, you find a study with a bay window and formal rooms. They flow through double doors to an open-plan living, dining and kitchen area in an angled wing to the right. A grand staircase (with powder room and storeroom under) leads to four bedrooms, three bathrooms and the laundry. Perimeter hedges ensure privacy and make a lush backdrop for a view of the pool in the north lawn, which can be enjoyed from the elevated terrace. ● JACQUI HAMMERTON
