Of simpler times.

After the "fibro" beach shack, came concrete blocks.  In the early sixties through the seventies a new form of minimalist architecture came into being.   It wasn't a deliberate movement, just a neat collection of standard modular building components.   The objective was to enclose space (and usually a minimal amount( by the cheapest possible means,.  With the benefit of fifty years of hindsight, perhaps there is some merit in the result.

This house though will soon be gone, its owners planning to replace it in the near future with something that provides a little more space for their growing family.

Even the shade of blue screams 'I'm from the 60's'. Interesting how our values and designs change and move over time.

Some of that architectural style ended up here too.
