19 Callitris Cres, Marcus Beach QLD

An architect led-renovation from an original which is a little out of the Mid-Century time-frame for us (c.1985) but nonetheless was first designed with keen deference to the Modernist ethos including a floor plan remeniscent of any simple 60s So Cal classic and as such it has played host to one of Rosso’s sell-out ‘Man About The House’ shows back in 2016. As described over there:

“The Marcus Beach House (1985) by Brisbane Architect Craig Herron derives from the architect designed, craftsman built Australian suburban project homes of the sixties and seventies. Designed for his mother, the house entertained family holidays for the extended Heron family for more than 25 years. The house was sympathetically re-modeled in 2010 for its new owners, a young family of five, by the multi-award winning Brisbane Architect Paul Owen (Owen Architecture). At just 140sq.m the courtyard house layout derives efficiency of space through integration of circulation and utility functions bringing family members together in daily routine and ritual.”

If it’s good enough for the Modernister, then it’s good enough for us.
