Beautiful Houses: Cassell Street House
- Apr 05, 2013
I have been doing the Beautiful Houses post for a while now, and I am also a big fan of architecture. And although I browse architecture related sites looking for inspiring houses, every single day I get impressed with new architectural master pieces.
Today we will show you the beautiful Cassell Street House in Melbourne, Australia, a project by b.e. Architecture. The house is clean and beautiful. The materials and colors are elegant and deliver a very sophisticated environment. Definitely a great place to live ;)
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.
