BUTTERFLY HOUSE (STATE)
Iggulden House at 50 Wells Road, Beaumaris, was commissioned as a home
and inspirational environment for its owner, an aviation historian and author. It occupies a prominent site on a hilltop approximately 500 metres from Port Phillip Bay. Designed by David Chancellor of the firm Chancellor and Patrick and completed in 1957-58, the brick pylon and timber-framed house exploits the full potential of views to the north and south. Two storeys of living space are topped by a third storey lookout and studio over which hovers a projecting butterfly roof.
An excellent example of privately commissioned domestic architecture of the 1950s in suburban Melbourne, its design is both functional and aesthetically expressive.
