Terrarium House with John Ellway
Play • 50 min

In this episode I talk to the architect John Elway about the design of his own home, Terrarium House, a plant filled property that defines inside outside living. 

It is a renovation and extension of a typical bungalow in Brisbane, Australia, but from the street frontage all does not appear normal. The façade is a tangle of vines with a secret front door.

I talk to John about the plant filled spaces that lie within and how he designed this beautiful home for himself and his family.

At the end of the interview I ask him the three questions I ask all of my guests; what is the one thing that annoys him in his home, what home has he visited that has made him feel happy and, if he could choose anyone to design him a house, who would he choose?
