Located in the South Yarra neighborhood of Melbourne, Australia, the Cassell Street House was created to replace an Edwardian row house, a design that is very prevalent in that part of town. A refreshing change, it is nevertheless designed to be sympathetic with the period. A timeless structure with its rectangular shape and limited material palate of natural and aged materials, the Cassell Street House is also unapologetically contemporary.

Designed by b.e architecture, the upper level exterior of the Cassell Street House is made up of 10 different sized slabs of stone, which is modeled after Byzantine buildings in a reference to the owner’s heritage. Below is characterized by expansive glazing and opens up to a secluded garden space.
