Modern Heritage

Book cover image - Modern Heritage
Heritage homes hum with inherent charm and character, filling the void for those seeking more than a modern white box. Australian houses built from the 1920s to the 1940s offer a triumphant meeting of styles, embracing stylistic elements of Old English, Spanish Mission, Art Deco and everything in between. But as delightful as they are, their quirky details and layouts are not always suited to a contemporary lifestyle. Modern Heritage surveys twenty homes that embody the period's vibrant architectural eclecticism. Weaving cultural context with new insights, this carefully curated volume highlights the privilege that comes with owning a heritage house and the value of research in understanding the architecture's stories and setting. Homeowners and architects share the process of protecting this legacy while giving new life to these cherished homes.
