Some serious pedigree here, with a sympathetic update to show us all that this type of kindly renovation of MCM homes is really picking up steam – praise be! The architect at hand is Raymond Jones, former Robin Boyd protégé, who fled the frosty Melbourne drizzle in the early 50s and proceed to be at the forefront of Perth’s Mid-Century built awakening for the next 50 years, leaving a legacy of insanely beautiful and notable domestic, public and commercial buildings (top tip – google ‘Kiernan House’ c.1957, in Dalkeith for starters). So it would be pretty bloody awesome to dive in and live in such a residence, in one of the most beautifully Australian locales to boot. Perth peeps – start your engines!
