We love forays into the more experimental varieties of Modern architecture almost as much as we love a good Australian Mid-Century beach shack (they’re design cousins really), so today we present a meeting of both.

This soaring A-Frame house has an orientation of twin wins –  breezy, surf-side South and sun-drenched North nestled in the understated beauty of salty, tea-tree coastal bushland. Inside is not your usual rag-tag A-Frame interior but a stunning and sensitively refurbed 3- level home with endless timber lining and a clever use of era-specific pop; original MCM furniture, new light fittings, dotty kitchen and that red Pirelli in the bathroom (a person favourite in flooring) which indicates a skillful knowledge celebrating the era, without turning it into a retro side-show.

Bravo and claps all round!
