Beaumaris Modern 2 is the much anticipated follow-up book to Beaumaris Modern, which won the Australian Institute of Architects 2020 – Bates Smart Award for architecture in media.
Some of Australia’s best known mid-century Modern architects designed their earliest homes in Beaumaris: these architects were experimenting with new materials, design and construction ideas that can be seen in the experimental, fragile, valuable houses that remain.
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.
