Chancellor and Patrick were a Melbourne based practice, formed in 1953. Known for the houses they designed in the 1950's and 60's, they had an signature, expressive and 'organic' style of architecture. Inspired by the likes of Frank Lloyd Wright, they are best known for the Rothel House in Mornington and Larrakeyah, McCraith House, Dromana. 

Kew House has been kept in original condition and is a prime example all that we love about 70's houses. Dramatic bathrooms in every shade, slate and wood, the house evokes memories of that era.
