Though falling out of our self-imposed boundary for Mid-Century (c.1984), it is clear this commission for the Clayton family by architect David Edelman (recently departed – vale) carries with it the spirit of some of the best MCM homes we can cite in this country. Indeed those swathes of Clifton-ish grey/brown brick, timber ceiling, terracotta flooring,  as well as that beautiful bushland situation in the middle of Melbourne suburbia brings to mind the work of Gunn, Everist and any number of this architect’s professional, Modernist forebears – we would never say no to this one.
