We are extremely excited to show you inside the new house of mous. magazine, the heritage listed Bardon Fairy House.

The architect behind this whimsical a-frame structure was Russian born Grigori Mikonoshin  who built the house for his wife and daughter. The front garden completes the mystical look with hand sculpted classical composers and fairy tale characters.  The house, that was built in 1950 by Mikonoshin himself, still has many of its original features including its almost impossibly steep roof, arched doorways and ornate recess ceiling.

Mikonoshin was also the architect behind Brisbane’s once iconic hilltop ballroom Cloudland.

The Bardon Fairy House has long been one of our favourite pieces of post-war architecture in Brisbane and we have fitted out the office with Eames inspired post-war furniture with an industrial modern twist. By using furniture with timeless clean lines, we have accentuated the unique sloping- hardwood ceiling.
