The parade of astounding original and mint condish homes rolls on with this eye watering dreamboat, once again found in the middle-ring, rather overlooked suburbs of Melbourne. This neat-as-the-day-it-was-built, streamlined brick and beamed stunner still boasting its cork floored, red tiled kitchen (hooray!), split levels, light fittings and beautiful array of Australian furniture (all way too cool to be hired for the campaign) is, to our mind, something to shoot for in a new build, the ideal Modernist Australian home. Purity and restrained use of materials. Simplicity of design. Letting the spaces, textures, the environment outside and light filtering inside speak for themselves. There is no surprise to note that this is an architect’s own home. Less is so always much more.
