Cassell Street House
Modern Houses: Cassell Street House
This beautiful house, “Cassell Street House” in Melbourne, Australia a project by b.e. Architecture. This house combines a great choice of materials and colors, the end result is clean and elegant constructing a very sophisticated charisma to it.
Description from the architects: Cassell Street house is a boutique new home built on a corner block in South Yarra, built in place of an attached Edwardian row house and set amongst homes of a similar vintage. The house was therefore designed to be sympathetic with the period but not mimetic of any particular style, whilst remaining unapologetically contemporary. The limited material palate of natural and aged materials such as travertine, rusticated timber, concrete & steel cast over a strong rectilinear form work to give the building the quality of looking older than it is – to look as though in an another world it could well have been standing in its place unchanged since the 1930s.
