Though the recognition of Mid-Century design and materials pushes forth and the desire for 70s interiors gets stronger, it is thoroughly depressing to see an agent’s opening pitch like this one, especially in the case of such a gorgeously crafted and maintained, c.1966 gem (a rarity we think, in our endless quest for more northern Modern). It would be tempting to write this off as the act of certain Queenslanders who never shook the white-shoe-Bjelke-Petersen mantra of filthy lucre at the expense of natural and built heritage, but that is unfair as we still spot examples sadly all over the country. The best way to oppose this line of thinking of course is for someone to buy it and love it, exactly as it is. Step to Brisvegans.
