In 1957, the renowned architecture duo Hayes & Scott designed what is today known as one of Brisbane’s most iconic mid-century houses: the Jacobi house. Elevated on stumps with spacious verandas on three sides, this small house, measuring no more than nine by nine metres square, presented an eloquent modern reinterpretation of the traditional Queensland house.
Set within the re-created Jacobi house building in SLQ Gallery, this special event brings together the different generations of people who resided in this modernist masterpiece. Involving the original visionary builders, Joan Jacobi and her son Jason, previous owner Malcolm Elliott and present-day owners Amanda Baxter and Ken Peterson, this event offers an intimate insight into the stories behind the Jacobi house.
