1957-58 Iggulden House | 50 Wells Rd Beaumaris VIC 3193, Australia | Architect: David Chancellor of the firm Chancellor & Patrick
Iggulden House at 50 Wells Road, Beaumaris, which is registered (File No. B7364) by the Victorian National Trust as being of State significance,  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 PortPhillip Bay. The brick pylon and timber-framed house exploits the full potential of views to the north and south.
Two stories of living space are topped by a third story 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. Via: 1 | 2

Monocasco Concept Bike

The Monocasco Concept Bike is an electric version inspired by the original Ossa Monocasco bike of Santiago Herrero. Reliving the legacy of the legendary Sabtiago, who died racing his Ossa in the 1970 Grand Prix, this bike is a fitting tribute. The story goes that Ossa abandoned racing altogether after this tragedy. - Via
