No. 184 Dryandra Street, O’Connor is up for sale.

Astute, progressive design and a minimalist aesthetic have helped transform this 1960s modernist abode into a functional, contemporary home.

The four-bedroom, two-bathroom property at 184 Dryandra Street in O’Connor uses light and shade to create a special ambience, amid its bushy rear outlook and energy-efficient extension.

The renovation is the handiwork of award-winning architect Kim Bridgland, a Melbourne designer who has skilfully considered the old and the new in a fine balancing act between mid-century charm and modern design.

Versatile living spaces.

“The extension is about five years old, but I feel like that use of dark timber, which you are seeing a lot of that charred timber in houses now, that play on light to dark that is creating mood. I feel that architecturally it was quite progressive,” says Komorowski.”

Set on a 669sqm block with 180sqm of living space, the property features a wood fire, water tank and bi-fold doors that lead to an entertaining deck.

The home goes to auction on 4 April at 11am.
