Jack pho­tographed the Christopher El­liott-de­signed house, p170. What was your im­pres­sion of the house? The project is stun­ning. It bal­ances tra­di­tional Vic­to­rian ar­chi­tec­ture with con­tem­po­rary fin­ishes, cre­at­ing a sub­lime space. Who/what have been some of your en­dur­ing cre­ative in uences? Jef­frey Smart, pho­tog­ra­phers Tim Grif th and Hufton and Crow. Mum, an artist. Where is home for you and what do you love about it? Orig­i­nally from Perth, I have been based in Mel­bourne for the past seven years and now call it home. I love how the city ap­pre­ci­ates de­sign and pro­motes the arts. What are some of your favourite lo­cal haunts? Blonde for cof­fee and Ali­men­tari for lunch in Fitzroy; Havn Store. Ul­ti­mate travel es­cape in 2018/19? I was lucky enough to spend a few weeks trav­el­ling around Puglia on Italy’s Adri­atic coast. It was a per­fect mix of sun, surf, de­li­cious food/wine and rugged land­scapes. What is on you read­ing list at the mo­ment? The New Yorker magazine. IMO­GEN N AYLOR
