Designtel - Kiddle House, Chancellor & Patrick

Kiddle House [1954]

Chancellor & Patrick

Imagery: Peter Wille

Mount Eliza, the seaside Mornington Peninsular town that the Kiddle House sits to served as a liberal mid-century playground, with some of the nation’s best architects demonstrably pushing the limits of post-war modernism. Undoubtedly the most prolific in the area with three designs on the Kiddle House’s street alone, Chancellor & Patrick were joined by an impressive array of architects inclusive of Roy Grounds and Robin Boyd who penned work to the area that helped hone an architectural vernacular entailing horizontal proportionality, economical material choices and low-slung rooflines with generously glazed portions to open homes to their surrounds.
