Beaumaris Modern

Some brief overview of book

Beaumaris Modern - Modernist Homes in Beaumaris is a collection of mid-century modern Beaumaris houses, beautifully documented by Jack Shelton, a bayside local now living and working as a professional photographer in LA. Some are original in their design and are the architect's own homes from the 50s and 60s and other homes have been sensitively restored and renovated. All the houses have a back story, fascinating interiors and architectural details, particularly the houses in which the owners have lived for over 60 years.

Each house features a history, written by Fiona Austin, a Beaumaris resident, interior designer and local Beaumaris heritage expert, and Alison Alexander, a Beaumaris mid-century home owner, writer, editor and daughter of prominent architect Ross Stahle, from the architectural practice Mockridge Stahle Mitchell. Each house includes a biography of the original architect, written by mid-century expert and architectural historian, Simon Reeves. A detailed floor plan also accompanies each house.

The foreword to the book has been written by Dr Philip Goad, Professor of Architecture and Deputy Dean in the Faculty of Architecture, Building and Planning at the University of Melbourne, who grew up in Beaumaris in a mid-century home.
