Brighton Sixties

Series 2 · Episode 1

Over the years, Nick and Anna McKimm have almost made a hobby of renovating, selling and moving on. But with three young children, they’re ready to lay down permanent roots and build their dream home. A sleek, modernist, 60’s inspired family residence on a large, half acre block in Melbourne’s bayside suburb, Brighton. Nick heads up a successful building company and knows a lot about quality period reproductions - particularly classical architectural styles - and Anna has a flair for beautiful fit-outs. But as they’re about to learn, mid-century building is very different to other architectural styles and comes with its own challenges.

Are pool fences not mandatory in Victoria?

This house is incredible! The overall design and authenticity of 60s Art Deco design and methods that the house has been based on are all well researched and put into practice. On top of this the clever incorporation of modern design and new technologies into the final product makes the house a state of the art 60s Art Deco replica! The end result is impeccable. I love it!

I was really disappointed with the outdoor area, looked like a shopping centre car park and not a multi million dollar house. Really weird, needed some greenery or plants or wood or something non-concrete and non-white.

Sensational! Congratulations to you both.

I call it mental design and have actually met some of the owners. Some are brilliant some are just ridiculous and silly. It is the number one show on lifestyle for sure.

I absolutely LOVED it - I can't stop looking at it - it takes my breath away. So nice to see some one doing something original. They deserve to be very proud of themselves.

Fantastic home!! When will GDA put the supplier list up on the website as it page doesn't exist when you click on it? Or can you tell me where the metal rimmed floor mirror is from? (master bedroom)
Many thanks
