Ross Gardam Polar Wall Light, Gold Mirror finish featured in this MRTN bathroom design

Frankston House | MRTN

content-image-type

A midcentury home designed by architect and AFL footballer Jack Clark in 1963, the Frankston House embodies the optimism of the period. With few changes made over the next 50 years, new owners engaged MRTN Architects to reimagine the house as a family home while staying true to the style and optimistic spirit of the original. The Polar Wall Light, in Gold Mirror finish by Ross Gardam is featured prominently in the restoration of the bathroom spaces.

While the Frankston House is in essence a restoration, it is not a restoration that returns the home to how it was originally built, rather it is a restoration that captures the inspiration that lay behind the first design. Original architect Jack Clarke contributed to Robin Boyd and The Age’s Small Homes Guide, an aspirational project that aimed to make modernist architecture and good design available to all. This ambitious objective echoed the sense of possibility that accompanied experimental architecture in the centre of midcentury modern design – the US West Coast in the fifties and sixties.
