Tim Ross’ Man About The House

"Hilarious" - The Age; "Must see!" New York Times Style Magazine

Following a sell out season in 2016, Tim Ross and Kit Warhurst are thrilled to be part of the Anywhere Theatre Festival to perform their brand new show.

For the last four years they have taken temporary possession of Architecturally significant buildings and skillfully blended storytelling, music and design in a mood breaking format that has seen them literally sell out houses across the globe.

Following rave reviews for the recent film series, Streets of Your Town, Tim and Kit welcome you to three unique properties on the Sunshine Coast.

“Must see show of the Festival.” New York Times.

The show runs for one hour and 35 minutes with a short interval.

Marcus Beach House

Fri 12 May @ 7:30pm | $55

The Marcus Beach House (1985) by Brisbane Architect Craig Herron derives from the architect designed, craftsman built Australian suburban project homes of the sixties and seventies.

Designed for his mother, the house entertained family holidays for the extended Heron family for more than 25years. The house was sympathetically re-modeled in 2010 for its new owners, a young family of five, by the multi-award winning Brisbane Architect Paul Owen (Owen Architecture). At just 140sq.m the courtyard house layout derives efficiency of space through integration of circulation and utility functions bringing family members together in daily routine and ritual. A restrained architectural aesthetic, the Marcus Beach House gives primacy to function and demonstrates small houses done well deliver eminently livable family homes.


Lake Weyba House

Sat 13 May @ 2:00pm | $60

Lake Weyba House is located on the Sunshine Coast near the western end of Lake Weyba. Created by Gabriel and Elizabeth Poole in 1996 this house is an Australian exemplar in lightweight and environmentally responsive housing.

A series of three pavilions, originally Gabriel Poole designed this residence for himself and his wife Elizabeth. They needed an office for their work as well as somewhere to cool off in summer. The rooms are arranged so as to be highly functional. Each pavilion has a structural framework consisting of a “series of steel portals” spaced 2.4 metres apart.

With considered sustainable design and high functionality, this home speaks of a specific architectural style, of light, and of openness to the unique surrounding landscape.


The 1957 Beach House, Maroochydore

Sat 13 May @ 8:00pm | $55

One of the original late 50’s beach shacks in the area, the house most likely was built by handy mates from Brisbane over many weekends, probably taking years to have their own little patch of paradise at the Coast. Surviving the eighties and nineties, it has since been lovingly renovated and extended. Now a light and airy 3 bedroom home with a great connection to the outdoors, the home sits elevated, comfortably back from the beach, behind what were swamp-lands at the time of construction.

Located in the established beachside area of Maroochydore, the house is a little gem among newer builds and modern renovations. A perfect example of architecture in this era, the beach house holds memories of many family holidays and summers by the sea.
