MAN ABOUT THE HOUSE II
Following a sell out season in 2016, Tim Ross and Kit Warhurst return to Melbourne to continue the launch of 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 mold 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 the outstanding Power Street Residence by Craig Rossetti, Rossetti Architects.

Power Street Residence by Rossetti Architects
Power Street Residence was named one ofthe ten best houses in 2016, through a great article on Domain (click here to check it out: https://www.domain.com.au/advice/australias-ten-best-houses-of-2016-amazing-design-and-architectural-ingenuity-20161124-gsuvhy/)
“An experience of total sensory surround is how architect Craig Rossetti’s stunningly original family house shapes up on a Hawthorn block subdivided so it fronts a quiet bluestone lane.
The four-bedroom, three-bathroom, two-living space home under a roof that cascades towards its garden is set beside a swimming pool that amplifies the Hockney-esque effect of the huge north window Rossetti compares to “a collapsing soap bubble”.
Beyond comfort and function, every element of this home becomes especially enlivened during wet weather; and, he says, is “about engagement in the environment”.”
Taking its reference from the lane that ran behind the old house, Power Street creates a stern face to that compliments the cobbstones and garage doors of the neigbouring houses.
Yet behind the massive front door, and a deliberately dark and low entry space, people enter a northern orientated space where light flows in through the structural curtain wall of steel and glass which supports the soaring 5 metre space.
As the principal designer at Rossetti Architects, Craig Rossetti has established himself in both Melbourne and overseas as a talented and dynamic designer with high profile airport, commercial and housing projects to his credit. One constant factor throughout his career has been Craig’s passion for his work and his company’s ability to design and build projects that fit comfortably within their urban context or natural surroundings.
