Today Patricia & Peter of Modernist Australia focus in on The Beach Shack. These unique & iconic beauties that line the shores are real treasures of our past. No doubt some childhood memories of summer holidays are set to come flooding back… – Jenny x

Australian homes of specifically Mid-Century design are an endangered species and none is more at risk, yet so loved than our humble, fibro beach shack.

They were the first and maybe only mass-produced housing which were constructed with Modernist Architecture principals such as clean lines, open plan living and floor to ceiling windows.

Nestled between tea-trees and memories of New Years Eves past, these little pastel boxes are a reminder of all that is at once carefree, modest and beautiful.

No flashy appliances, no townhouse living, no media rooms, no matching furniture, no worries.

Perfection.
