23 May 20th Century Modernism gets a 21st Century revamp in Ascot Vale
The mid 20th century saw a new breed of design and style that had an influence on just about everything in our lives. From civic and residential architecture through to the seat you sat on and the car you drove, this influential design revolution was inescapable…and what a fabulously inescapable revolution it was! I’m no designer, I just like what I like, but the early pioneers of this design philosophy clearly got it right as elements of this movement are still influencing architecture and design more than 60 years down the track.
This is why it was such a treat to discover this very 21st century villa in Ascot Vale proudly reveal it’s mid-century heritage. Clean lines, open plan living with an emphasis on expanses of glass and a stylish functionality that addressed changing formal values with the need to live a more casual lifestyle. In this case, lets not overlook the consideration the owners have had towards interior decorator finishes which marries Madmen chic with today’s tongue-in-cheek quirk and humour brilliantly.
