More on Mr Jones

Raymond Jones Mcmillan houseRaymond Jones Lisle HouseSo architecture expeditions have led us around the suburbs lately, armed as we are with the catalogue of Raymond Jones’ built residences (read post about his recent exhibition here). We located 4 out of 4 in Dalkeith, Nedlands and City Beach.

 

My favourite is the 1957 Kiernan House (top). It’s been (sympathetically) extended and its clean modern lines complement the roofline of its next door neighbour, the McMillan House, designed by Jones in 1956. A great little midcentury niche amongst the surrounding Tudor-esque mansions.

The original splendor of the Lisle House, City Beach (above), is a little obscured, but hey – it has survived! It sits high on the hill with the semi-circular frontage facing the ocean. My kind of house.

    Here’s what I think; I think the organisers of the Ray Jones show shoulda had you on board. They seem to have left a couple of crackers off the list I was sent to shoot!
    I met Ray’s ex at Easter, had a great chat to her about the house they built and lived in near the old flour mill in Cottesloe.

    Hey Bob! Maybe I can see your Ray Jones unpublished shots and turn myself into even more of a serial pest, hehe.
