A breathtaking lesson in the downsize; elegant and pristine in presentation, simple yet totally Modern in its considerations for light, lifestyle, materials and space. Designed by architect Frank Dixon in 1974 (whose work you may recall here) for his father as a retirement/downsizer next door to his own family home in the quiet (at the time insipid) streets of the now unstoppable MCM abattoir of Balwyn. Suffice to say we do not have a robust enough collection of superlatives to lay with sincere reverence at the feet of this beauty, and must defer instead, as with all the best ones, to the images. Click and drool kids, click.and.drool.
Many thinks to Steven at MCDA for finding this one and the indefatigable Simon Reeves at Built Heritage for the history.
