With thanks to one of our founding partners, the Committee for Brisbane, we hosted two private tours of the historic “Home” at Kangaroo Point.
Being lovingly restored by its owners, Mr Steve Wilson AM and Dr Jane Wilson AO, heritage-listed “Home” is an architectural symbol of turn-of-the-century Brisbane and is on the Australian Institute of Architects’ list of nationally significant 20th century buildings.
Previously known locally as Lamb House, “Home” remained in the Lamb family for more than 100 years but was rapidly decaying and came close to ruin. The Wilsons took charge in June 2021 and have pledged to restore, protect and care for this Brisbane icon.
Tours were led by project architects James Davidson and David Gole. Our thanks to their support of this event and it was inspiring to see their passion for this incredible project of restoration.
This event was to raise funds, with net proceeds being donated to Brisbane Open House to support our important work. A total of $18,403.12 was raised and we thank everyone for their support.
