Talk about a historic mid century modern time capsule, this is the private residence of architect Ernest Fooks for himself & his wife Noemi, located in a suburb of Melbourne. I love how unpretentious this house is from the outside but when you walk through the front door it is so open and inviting. All of the textures on the inside, brick, wood and what ever the flooring is, gives this house dimension. This home was for sale but I think it recently sold.

The house is of architectural significance for its high level of craftsmanship in the oiled teak built-in joinery & finishes. The strong Japanese influence throughout the house & garden with its winding path of slate slabs with dark grey pebbles between curved broken brick wall & pebbled courtyards incorporates aspects of Scandinavian & European design.
