Rosie’s House

This must have been the ugliest house in Avalon, no disrespect to the client, however the clients were about to travel to India as tourist and we had just returned from Nepal and India so the sub continent was on our minds. It was suggested that we extend the building and there was general agreement when we proposed to be inspired by the design of the Potala that is the Dali Lamas Palace in Lhasa Tibet and we would colour the building inspired by the Amber Fort in Jaipur. Great said the client so off we went. Again this building is iron clad and earth rendered and we used some of the timber from the wharf from Prince Alfred Yacht Club.

Years on there has been no deterioration of any of these earth walls and the earliest buildings were completed in the early 1980’s and unfortunately we have no pictures of these early buildings.
