About the book

This is the much anticipated follow up book to Beaumaris Modern: Modernist Homes in Beaumaris.

Book 2 features a range of significant freshly discovered mid-centry modern houses, some restored and others renovated by a contemporary architect.

Like the first book, the photography by two of Australia’s leading architectural photographers, Derek Swalwell and Jack Shelton, capture the essence of these houses with beautifully composed interior and exterior images.

Biographies of the architects have been carefully researched by heritage architect, Simon Reeves and Fiona Austin has written the stories about the houses from both research and interviews with current and previous owners.
