Beaumaris Modern No 5

Original post 22 October 2019

Dearie House, #Beaumaris, #KevinKnightArchitect, 1953; extensions by #mathewgreen. Knight worked for #OakleyAndParkes. My favourite of the @beaumaris_modern open day houses, I guess because the original house a kind of rustic Modern, with very simple lines, exposed rafters, #roughsawn vertical boards, and projecting north facing lounge with corner window. Also while the additions are large, they’re in keeping but not matching, and retained the main rooms intact, the entry, lounge, corridor and bedrooms. Yum.
